Vom Autor: FROM THE INTRODUCTION:
My wife doesn’t come from the entertainment business and was singularly uninformed about it when I was introduced to her in Hong Kong. The first time she was on a movie set, I was guest starring in the TV series 'Air Wolf.' When I introduced her to one of the co-stars, and an old pal, Ernie Borgnine, she told him he looked familiar. Ernie started giving her a list of his credits and she kept shaking her head. He finally gave up and picked an apple from a tray, handed it to her and said, 'Have one, sweetheart. That ended the subject.
The first few years of our marriage, I regaled her with stories of Hollywood and my experiences in the business; mostly during dinner and over a bottle of wine. She was always attentive and occasionally asked a question. The conversations always ended with, 'You should write this down, for your autobiography.' It was hard to believe anybody would be interested in my life even though I still receive fan mail from avid 'Combat!' fans who grew up watching the show with their parents and now sit in front of the TV looking at it with their kids. [...] Then an interesting thing happened. A package arrived one day in 1995. Until then, I knew 'Combat!' had been in reruns all over the country, but I wasn’t aware of any organized effort to unite its fans. This was a package from a group of fans, and it opened my eyes to a 'Combat!' world I had no idea existed. A website visited by thousands each month, and a 'Combat!' convention that they dubbed a 'recon,' along with a Carribbean cruise. The enthusiasm of the 'Combat!' devotees has been staggering. I’ve been informed, in no uncertain terms, that there are a lot more people besides my lovely wife who would like to read about my beginning in television, when it was in its infancy. To all of you who’ve insisted and encouraged me, to all whom I’ve entertained, thanks for making my life that much more fulfilled. -- Rick Jason
