Let Del Reisman take you back to the Golden Age of Television.

Boomers will be familiar with the late Ross Martin as the actor who, in the mid-1960s, played Artemus Gordon on tv’s THE WILD WILD WEST. But before that Ross acted in THE TWILIGHT ZONE. In 1978 Marc Zicree was 22 years old and just beginning the research that would lead him to write the book on Serling’s masterpiece, The Twilight Zone Companion. Marc conducted this interview (©2008 Marc Scott Zicree) with Ross Martin 30 years ago.
