I have this book!

I have this book and it is great. Except for John Wayne and Basil Rathbone, almost every major Hollywood star was a guest on this show. I have a few episodes in my collection, one with Peter Graves (my hearthrob) so I can state that even if this book and Alpha's description is not "rave reviews," the book is worth every penny.
