      • When Dick Cavett introduced Candice Bergen he said she was not only a model and an actress, but a writer and photographer - "a Renaissance broad".

      • Primetime Summer one hour program shown three times a week (Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays) at 10pm. Produced by Tony Converse, Directed by David Barnhizer (was the associate producer of 100 segments of the old Regis Philbin Show for Westinghouse).

        Barnhizer's first job was at NBC in Chicago in 1953 as stage manager for Kukla, Fran and Ollie. His first big job as a director was an adaptation of Dickens' "A Christmas Carol". He won four EMMYS in Chicago, including two for directing and producing "Quillow and the Giant" a children's theater musical featuring Win Stracke.

        While in Chicago he made 4,000 commercials. He says, "I think I hold the world's record", "I did 48 one-minute plugs in one day."

        Barnhizer was invited to watch a pilot of a show called The Star and the Story a take-off on This Is Your Life with Dick Cavett as the host. The program dealt with actor Van Johnson's life story and it was about three minutes old, when it became apparent that Cavett knew all he wanted to know about Van Johnson", Barnhizer says, "and he spoofed the rest of the show. I liked him immediately!"
