With a repertoire including Merv Griffin, Steve McQueen, the Monkees and the Brady Bunch, Gene Trindl holds the record for shooting TV Guide Magazine covers — more than 200 of them! We went behind the lens with the late photographer's grandson, Skylar Schofield, who calls Trindl's impressive roster of cover images his "ultimate résumé."

Steve McQueen, Wanted: Dead or Alive, May 30, 1959
"He never really watched too much television, because it was weird for him to see his subjects [as stars], even though that's what he was trying to capture," says Schofield of legendary Hollywood macho man Steve McQueen (posing on our cover for his hit Western Wanted: Dead or Alive). "He really respected people who were true craftsmen."

Cheers: An Incredible Memory

Cheers to The Incredible Hulk for not forgetting its roots. The surprisingly solid summer blockbuster pays dual homage to the 1978-82 TV series. The late Bill Bixby (who played the Hulk's mild-mannered alter ego) is seen in a clip from his series The Courtship of Eddie's Father. And the original green monster, Lou Ferrigno, appears as a security guard Edward Norton bribes with a pizza and proclaims, "You are the man!" Ferrigno also provides the voice of the computer-generated Hulk. Would you want to tell him he couldn't have the job?• Share your own raves and rants about other shows on the Reader Cheers & Jeers discussion board.• We may feature your Cheer or Jeer on or in TV Guide magazine! read more
