2015-01-25 - HOLLYWOOD SHOW
On January 23-25 2015 the Westin Los Angeles Airport Hotel
hosted a grand event honoring the reunion of many of our
favorite TV shows. Such as Lost in Space, Laverene & Shirley,
Dynasty, Lassie, and over 150 plus stars appering and
signing autographs. Fans came in costumes such as Jim Blair in
several Guy Williams replica tunics, a Saticon, and a very cool
B9 Robot greeting the guest attending. Even the original
Gemini-12 was on display, and 14 of us had dinner with Major.
Don West (Mark Goddard) on Friday night.
There was an hour chat with the LIS cast and Guy Williams Jr.
was also there to talk about his late father. Fans Ron Nastrom,
and Ron Middlekauff showed off there price treasures both proud
owners of the Guy Williams and Billy Mumy costume tunics. I
was also excited to meet artist, Mark Dorais which we have
chatted over the years, that made my weekend complete!
I spent my Monday afternoon with Producer Kevin Burns at his
office on Sunset Blvd. discussing and seeing the works of the new
LIS on Blu-Ray, which was also shown at the event which the fans
gave high reviews on. Kevin shared many things in the works with me,
as well and many memories of the show, and was treated to see the
original artwork of the Poseidon Adventure, and the Towering Inferno
displayed in his office. The evening ended at 6:30 PM with a ride
to my car in Irwin Allen's Rolls-Royce that Kevin purchase from Mr.
Allen's estate. (Lic. plate 1 IA)
