We recently had the distinct pleasure of talking with the lovely and talented Sylvia Lewis about her featured role as the beguiling club dancer "Macayo" in the Steve Canyon episode OPERATION B-52.
Putting on a show...
Sylvia and I share a theory that her character in this episode was named after the famous Macayo Club that used to be in Santa Monica and where Sylvia danced and performed often early in her career. She knew author Charles Beaumont to some extent, and remembers being called in for the part (most likely by casting director Gene Reynolds) WITHOUT any audition, so it is possible...
Making time with Col. Canyon!
We recommend a visit to Sylvia's website at sylvialewis.net for a whole lot of cool pix and clips and info showing highlites of our friend Sylvia's extraordinary career. She was a guest star on many of our favorite shows, including The Beverly Hillbillies, Gomer Pyle USMC, The Dick Van Dyke show, Zorro...and even appeared with Shemp Howard in a famous THREE STOOGES short!
Also note that her episode OPERATION B-52 is one of the 4 on our "sampler" STEVE CANYON SPECIAL EDITION DVD, which is available for purchase below.
