TV Land LegendsUnknown - 2006
What qualities define a television legend? Everything from the endlessly inventive physical comedy of Lucy Ricardo to the homespun warmth of Pa Ingalls. A television legend captivates us, warms our hearts, and makes us tune in to see them again and again. They have become extended family, their quirks and expressions part of our cultural vernacular. TV Land celebrates these characters, and the actors and actresses who play them, in this dazzling volume. Here, the world's top photographers meet television's biggest stars. Whether it's Carol Burnett channeling Norma Desmond, Carl Reiner caught dead serious (except for the pencil in his ear), Will Smith as a cowboy, or the cast of Friends mugging as a circus act, here are our most cherished stars seen in photographs that capture their essence. With essays by Billy Crystal, Mary Tyler Moore and Toure, plus quotes from one celebrity about another -- including David Letterman on Johnny Carson, Jon Stewart on Bob Newhart, Megan Mullaly on Carol Burnett, and many more,TV Land Legendsis the ultimate in living room reading.
