Known to three generations of television viewers as Israel Boone on the long-running family Western drama Daniel Boone, Darby Hinton has spent his entire life in show business. Both his father and his grandfather were actors, while Darby himself has appeared in countless other film, TV and stage productions—including the recent award-winning movie Wild Faith, a post-Civil War drama about a Union soldier who comes back to his home town in Michigan to start a new life, despite a world around him that is resisting change. Filmed on location in Michigan, Wild Faith has a timeless message of faith and hope that is also incredibly timely. We’ll tell you what we mean by that when Darby Hinton joins us in our second hour.
Darby Hinton is also one of the producers and one of the stars of Bill Tilghman and the Outlaws, a Wild West action adventure that also features Johnny Crawford, Keith Carradine, and a passel of other Western actors. For our listeners in Southern California, Darby will appear at a special benefit screening of Bill Tilghman and the Outlaws that will take place Saturday, Sept. 7 at the Joel McCrea Ranch in Thousand Oaks, California. All proceeds from this event will benefit actor Johnny Crawford in his fight against Alzheimer’s disease. For tickets and more information, visit DarbyHinton.com.
Darby Hinton will be appearing at this year’s WesternLegendsRoundUp.com in Knab, Utah on August 15, 16, and 17; The Mid Atlantic Nostalgia Convention in Hunt Valley, Maryland on Sept. 12, 13, and 14;the Lone Pine Film Festival in historic Lone Pine, California on October 10, 11, and 12; and the Happy Trails Virginia Style Western convention in Roanoke, Virginia on October 17, 18, and 19. For more information on these and other upcoming events, visit DarbyHinton.com.
Also this week: We will welcome back Will Ryan, Nick Santa Maria, and Michael Schlesinger. Will and Nick are the stars—and Mike, the writer, producer and director—of The Misadventures of Biffle and Shooster, the Rondo Award-nominated DVD collection of original, authentically-made 1930s-style comedies starring the greatest comedy team, Benny Biffle and Sammy Shooster, that never actually existed. The Biffle and Shooster shorts were filmed over the last five years, but they look and sound as if they were actually unearthed from the 1930s—plus they’re side-splittingly hilarious.
Will and Nick will appear this week in character as we take a look at Biffle and Shooster’s often overlooked, but nonetheless significant television career of the 1960s. You’ll be amazed at just how many legendary TV moments the boys almost helped create. Will Ryan and Nick Santa Maria will join us as Biffle and Shooster in our first hour.
A collection of five comedy shorts (all but one of which was filmed in black and white), The Misadventures of Biffle and Shooster is now available on DVD; four of the shorts (“The Biffle Murder Case,” “Imitation of Wife,” “Schmo Boat,” and “Bride of Finklestein”) are also available for viewing on demand on Amazon, Vudu, and other streaming platforms, under the umbrella title The Adventures of Biffle and Shooster. In addition, the new Biffle and Shooster book, The Biffle and Shooster Portable Guide to Etiquette, is available for purchase, as are all four issues of the Biffle and Shooster comic book.
For our listeners in Southern California, Will Ryan and Nick Santa Maria are also scheduled to perform live as Biffle and Shooster at the Coffee Gallery Backstage in Altadena, California on Sunday, Nov. 3.
