Refill your favorite cup of coffee and enjoy Garrison’s conversation with actor Dan Haggerty, best known as Grizzly Adams in the title role of the 1974 Sunn Classic Pictures feature, The Life and Times of Grizzly Adams. From this feature film evolved the NBC television series which ran from 1977 to 1978. Haggerty, a former animal trainer, stunt expert and animal handler directed white tigers, wolverines, eagles and wild boar and was a celebrity motorcycle builder before the craft was popularized in reality TV shows. Dan was the only person to have his star REMOVED from the Hollywood Walk of Fame actually meant to honor another actor, the late Don Haggerty, and the committee made an error in spelling. Eventually Dan received a legitimate star, now located in front of Grauman’s Chinese Theatre.
