Mr Sophistication

Craig Stevens was never used to his maximum potential in TV and in the movies. He was without doubt the "Gary Grant of TV" .Good looking and sophisticated with easy charm. He was in the Gene Barry mould.

If some bright spark producer could have come up with a decent series for him it could have run for years. Instead of this, he was once "Peter Gunn" has finished its run, just a jobbing actor appearing as a guest star in many forgettable TV series although his British series "Man of the World" was cut short by an actors strike here in the UK where it was made. "Man of the World" had the potential to be that long running series but for one reason or another it was cancelled. I think it was ahead of its time and if it had been made say 10 years later it may well have been a success. If you get a chance to see "Man of the World" then take it I do not think you will be disappointed.
