The Hero

Here's the opening to the 1966 TV comedy, THE HERO, starring future SOAP star Richard Mulligan as an actor who played a western hero on TV. His wife is played by Mariette Hartley who would finally find fame in a series of TV camera commercials with James Garner a decade later. Thanks to Kliph for the heads up.


  1. Never saw the show, but I remember AMT made a plastic model kit of that duded-out Imperial.

  2. This show had Star Trek as its lead-in during its (short) run on NBC. Going from the sublime to the ridiculous...

  3. It was meant to be for Westerns what its creators' previous show GET SMART was to secret agents
