'Mission Fairly Difficult' with Greg Morris.

If you were around in the late sixties, if you see a photo of Greg Morris or hear his name, you can't help but have the Mission Impossible theme music start running through your mind. 

After that series ended, Morris co-stared with Robert Urich on the TV show Vega$ (1978 - 81), playing a private investigator. He also appeared in over 60 TV shows.

After the cancellation of Vega$, Morris continued to make guest TV appearances, including three episodes in the remake of the Mission: Impossible TV series. That series starred his son Phill Morris, who was cast as the son of Morris' character from the original series.

I saw an interview with Phill who was amazed and excited that he could be in the same series that made his father famous.

I worked with Greg on a Seattle traffic safety film together with Jessica Walter who co-starred with Clint Eastwood in Play Misty for Me and James Garner in Grand Prix. That's her, Greg, the producer and me in the above photo.

From the moment he arrived on the set, Greg was fun, professional, always with a good word and a funny story. When the camera rolled, he snapped into his role of co-host and narrator and never missed a line. 
When we were finished filming, we went out into the dark parking lot to the van to drive Greg to his hotel. The van had a flat tire. 
I was in the process of changing it when when Greg said, "I'd like to help you, Paul. But I think I'll stand her and watch." 
I faked anger, threw down the tire iron, walked up to him and said, "I don't care how famous you are, if your first show was called 'Mission Fairly Difficult', you wouldn't be here." 
I'll never forget how he bent over with laughter out in that dark parking lot.
