Regis Philbin And Barry Glazer Don't Just Remember A Legend.... They Tell Us Why He's A Legend
We caught up with Regis Philbin leaving dinner at Sur in West Hollywood last night with Barry Glazer, Famed Director of huge productions such as the American Music Awards and Golden Globes.
Barry was also Dick’s Director for American Bandstand for Decades.
Regis and Barry both share some thoughts on Dick Clark, but the video finishes with Barry sharing a very special quality of Dick’s Character and History, and how he may have shaped OUR World and History as we know it.
Barry tells us that the People at the Network for American Bandstand specifically ordered him not to film “mixed couples” or the “ethnics” as they said it, on American Bandstand.
When Barry brought word of this news to Dick Clark, he said he didn’t care what they said and that his job was to shoot “anybody who’s dancing.. film their hair, their faces, their clothes… everything“.
So I thanked Barry for honoring his friend with such a great story.
And when you think about how much influence television has today, and how influential it was in shaping our cultural mindset back then…
One could only hope, that on the day of their passing, somehow… someone might share with the World
how you made it a better place, and impacted lives.
Dick Clark changed the World in ways we never even knew.
