- Program Description
One of the most versatile actors in America today is Richard Chamberlain. He is no longer “Dr. Kildare,” but rather an accomplished actor of stage, screen and television. Most recently he appeared in Christopher Fry’s “The Lady’s Not for Burning” in the Hollywood television Theatre production, broadcast nationally over PBS. Mr. Chamberlain appeared with the Birmingham Repertory Theatre in England in 1969 and became the first American actor to play “Hamlet” in England since John Barrymore 40 years ago. Mr. Chamberlain also received critical acclaim for his performance in “Richard II” during the 1971 season of the Seattle Repertory Theatre. At present Richard Chamberlain appears as a (to quote his own words) “slimy, electrical contractor” in “The Towering Inferno,” a frightening film about fire in a skyscraper.
Taped December 9, 1974.
