Richard Bare is primarily known as the sole director of the television series Green Acres, but his Hollywood career spanned over 40 years, starting with his USC student film, So You Want to Give Up Smoking, which resulted in a long-term contract at Warner Bros. He has directed over a dozen feature films and over 400 television shows, including Maverick, 77 Sunset Strip, The Virginian, and the Twilight Zone. Follow Bare through his many years in the film industry, which brought him into contact with Hollywood's biggest stars, like Gary Cooper, Betty Hutton, Debbie Reynolds, Eva Gabor, Eddie Albert, and Charlie Chaplin, as well as producers Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, and Walt Disney. Bare opens with a gripping story of how he and the crew of MGM's The Islanders almost lost their lives in a devastating plane crash in the Caribbean Sea. Includes filmography.
