Original Get Smart Film to Get a DVD

Would you believe?The new Get Smart film is hitting theaters on June 20, starring Steve Carell, Anne Hathaway and Adam Arkin as Maxwell Smart, Agent 99 and the Chief. Also in are Dwayne Johnson, Terence Stamp and - according to the fine print on the poster credits - former Las Vegas honcho James Caan!This isn't the first time Agent 86 will be in theaters, though! The first time was in 1980's film The Nude Bomb. Don Adams returned to the role he made famous in the 1965 television series, this time without Barbara Feldon as Agent 99. Instead he was joined by Dana Elcar (MacGyver, Baa Baa Black Sheep) as the Chief, Sylvia Kristel (Emmanuelle, Private School) as a sexy Agent 34 and Pamela Hensley (Buck Rogers, Matt Houston) as an equally easy-on-the-eyes Agent 35. Andrea Howard, however, is considered the most "99-like" in her role as Agent 22.Universal Studios has announced the first-ever DVD release of The Nude Bomb, coming out on June 17... just in time to compare to the new Steve Ca... read more

When I was a kid, my family ...

Question: When I was a kid, my family used to always watch Perry Como Christmas specials. We loved them every year. But one thing I was never able to figure out: Who was he? Did he have his own show or something?


Answer: Not only did he have his own show, Kenny, he had several (both radio and TV), not to mention a long, successful music career. Matter of fact, Como's life in the biz was remarkable for precisely the reason you give: Like the Energizer bunny, he kept going, and going, and going — well into the rock-and-roll era, when many other crooners like him had long faded into obscurity.

Como started out, interestingly enough, as a barber when he was still in high school, but was already singing at weddings even then. In 1933 he began singing in bands and built enough of a following (and enough hit records) that NBC hired him to cohost The Chesterfield Supper Club radio show, which moved to TV in 1 read more

SORRY ABOUT THAT, CHIEF

Don Adams, a three-time Emmy winner for his role as Maxwell Smart (aka Agent 86) on the '60s James Bond-spoofing series Get Smart, died on Sunday of a lung infection. He was 82. Born Donald James Yarmy, Adams dropped out of high school and joined the Marines in 1941. After contracting malaria during the Guadalcanal campaign, he returned to the United States as a drill instructor, where he acquired his distinctive clipped style of speaking — one that would serve him well professionally. In addition to Get Smart, its feature film (The Nude Bomb) and prime-time resurrections, his credits included voicing Tennessee Tuxedo, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer's Comet and Inspector Gadget. read more

My sister just called me at ...

Question: My sister just called me at work. She's home sick, watching Get Smart, and wants to know what Agent 99's name was. We know, obviously, that Agent 86's was Maxwell Smart. Was 99's ever stated on the show? I seem to remember Max always calling her 99.


Answer: Would you believe it was never revealed? (Sorry, nearly every time I write about Get Smart I have to start off with that famous Maxwell Smart utterance.) Truth is, though, that even Max (Don Adams) knew her only by her CONTROL number despite eventually marrying and fathering a set of twins with his beautiful partner (Barbara Feldon).

In one episode, in which 99 quit CONTROL, she said her name was Susan Hilton. By the end of it, however, she admitted that was a false name. She'd merely — sorry, I can't resist — pulled a number on us.
