Solid All American Man
- David Atkins
Joan Crawford when working with Van Williams on The Caretakers deemed Mr. Williams "delectable" and said in the "old days" Van would have been a major star. Van Williams was a WB contract star and was starred with Troy Donahue and Diane McBain in Surfside Six. Troy Donahue in his smash hit Delmer Daves movies at WB Parrish and Rome Adventure got the first crack at movie roles and following Troy was Ty Hardin who starred in PT 109, Chapman Report, Wall of Noise, etc. Van Williams got lost in the shuffle at WB even tho he made an auspicious and daring entrance to movies doing a semi nude scene in Josh Logan's Tall Story With Logan in his corner one wonders why Mr Logan did not cast Van Williams in some of his other movies in particular Ensign Pulver shot at WB. Van Williams hit major stardom in the TV show The Green Hornet,and this All America Man left show biz and became a successful businessman.
