Pages: 78. captioned: "Ya know these are hell to pass!" Comedian and actor Jonathan Winters (1925-2013) began his career on the radio, first as a disc jockey, until his comedic talents were revealed. He made his television debut on the CBS daytime show The Garry Moore Show, where he introduced such imperishable characters as freewheeling senior citizen Maudie Frickett and doltish Elwood P. Suggins. During the 1964-1965 season, Winters starred in a group of well-received specials, and was also a frequent guest on The Tonight Show, The Jack Paar Program and The Andy Williams Show. Winters later hosted his own programs, The Jonathan Winters Show (1967-1969) and The Wacky World of Jonathan Winters (1972-1974). He made his film debut in the all-star It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World (1963) and co-starred in films including The Russians are Coming, the Russians are Coming (1966) and The Adventures of Rocky & Bullwinkle (2000). Winters also maintained an interest in other art forms, including painting and literature. His numerous artwork included silkscreens and sketches, which he presented at special gallery showings. He also wrote a book of short stories called Winters' Tales (1988), which became a bestseller. The comedian received a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1960. Lightly toned. Book has rounded corners. Dust cover is lightly scuffed and creased, with light tears at top, right and front edges, rounded and worn corners and tape repair on verso.
