An interview with "Agent 99" Barbara Feldon

Barbara Feldon was nominated for two primetime Emmys (1968, 1969) as the sexy, lovable Agent 99 on the TV series "Get Smart." Her show partner was the bumbling secret agent Maxwell Smart, played by the late Don Adams. The spy spoof was as famous for Adams’ catch phrases ("missed it by that much," "sorry about that chief") as its “high-tech” gadgetry (shoe phone, cone of silence, etc.).

Feldon grew up in Butler, PA, and graduated with a B.A. in drama from what has become Carnegie Mellon University. Two years later, she won grand prize on "The $64,000 Question" in the category of William Shakespeare. Feldon did stage and parts in TV series including "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." and "Flipper" before hitting it big on "Get Smart." In 2002, she wrote the popular book, "Living Alone And Loving It."

Interviewer Jim Clash FR'99 will discuss with Barbara how the CIA appropriated ideas for espionage paraphernalia from 1960s spy shows like "Get Smart" as well as her long career as an actress. At the end of the interview, as is customary, Jim will open the floor to audience questions.
