The “Laguna Woods Stories” show, shot by Video One at their January 5 meeting, features Dr. Tom Nash interviewing Hollywood actor and Village resident Brett Halsey, who has appeared in hundreds of Hollywood films and TV programs during a career that began in the 1950s. Internationally known, he was one of Hollywood’s busiest and handsomest actors of the mid-to-late 50s and early 60s. Born Charles Oliver Hand tr in Santa Ana, CA, in 1933, he was interested in performing from childhood and found a modest “in” when he was hired as a teenage page at CBS Television studios. A chance meeting with the legendary Jack Benny and wife Mary Livingstone who taped “The Jack Benny Show” at CBS led to his being accepted to study at Universal-International’s training school that also included at the time future Universal stars Clint Eastwood and David Janssen. These intense studies eventually led to a contract offered by the studio – experiences Halsey shares in his “Laguna Woods Stories” interview. The half-hour show will air on Wednesdays at 12 noon.
