Morning Man Classic: Robert Conrad!
It’s the darnedest thing.
The search for photos of a young Robert Conrad resulted in mostly shirtless pics of this studly television star.
Oh well. I guess we’ll just have to go with them!
Conrad, who turned 84 on Friday, was quite the beefcake when he starred in the hit shows Hawaiian Eye and Wild, Wild West in the 1960s. By the 70s, he had developed a tough guy persona that he exploited in a series of popular commercials for Everready Batteries. He also starred in the hit show Black Sheep Squadron in the mid-70s and was the leader of the NBC team in the then-popular Battle of the Network Stars competitions.
Conrad hosts a weekly radio show and more than a decade ago ran for the presidency of the Screen Actors Guild but lost.
