A Tough Guy On Screen and Off

A personal reminiscence on the passing of TV star and producer Robert Conrad, about when he became a friend. His interest in martial arts. And why he always remained an iconic figure for me. Robert Conrad starred in the 1975 movie, "Murph The Surf" as Allan Kuhn, a wealthy swim instructor and ladies man who had a yacht, a 50-knot speedboat and a Cadillac convertible, and became a mentor to the brazen jewel thief. It was shot on location around Miami and Miami Beach, Florida. I vividly recall meeting Robert “Bob” Conrad, who passed away Feb. 8 at age 84, more than four decades ago. He had already starred in the hit TV series’ Hawaiian Eye and The Wild, Wild West when we first met in 1974.
