Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 23, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, March 23, 1974 Regular on TV 'Chase9 show Gary Crosby overcomes problems TV highlights By JERRY BUCK LOS ANGELES Gary Crosby said: "It sure is good to be working. "There were long periods when I didn't work at all. I did three Adam-12 shows a year. A long time went by when if I wasn't working for Jack Webb, I wasn't working at all." Crosby said his drinking and then the reputation that lingered after he stopped scared producers away. At midseason, when NBC's Chase was revamped by Webb's Mark VII Ltd. and Universal Studios, Crosby was named a regular. The empha- sis was shifted away from hot- rodding in fast cars and motorcycles to developing relationships between the characters. Crosby's blonde hair is be- ginning to recede on the bronzed forehead. The face is thinner since he lost 36 pounds last year and is becoming etched with lines. He strongly resembles his father. Gary, 40, is the oldest of Bing Crosby's four sons by his first marriage. Asked what he did when he wasn't working, he replied, "Waited for the phone to ring." How did he live? "Re- gardless of what the public thinks I have a of money com- ing in from my mother's es- tate and that sustains me. There was a lot of garbage in the papers that my brothers and I inherited million each." His mother, Dixie Lee Crosby, died in 1952. He said: "I stuck it out be- cause this is what I can do. I know I'm good and nobody can beat me." Gary dropped out of Stan- ford University, where he had played football, and broke into show business through television and nightclub ap- pearance. He was drafted into the army for two years in 1956 and when he got out he made a string of movies he said should be chopped up into guitar picks. In the early 1960s he played a bellhop on The Bill Dana Show. After that jobs became hard to find, except for occasional roles in such Webb shows as Dragnet, Adam-12, Emer- gency and O'Hara, U.S. Treasury. "It was because of the rep- utation for he said. "I'd quit but people in this business are slow to forgive. "Once you get a reputation you've got a reputation."
