Rozane's September 17th (1997) phone interview with Ron Pinkard

rp1.gif (14410 bytes)Well, I found Ron Pinkard in a interesting way. His mother told me where he was!  Before I tell you about Ron, I want to say a few things about his great mom.  Her name is Arlene Pinkard and she has appeared in Good Times and The Jeffersons among other things. She was a fascinating woman to talk with.  She gave me her son's beeper number and within minutes after leaving my number, he called me back.

Ron was born in Denver, on January 22. He attended Manual High School and later was a pre-med student for four years. He has also been a full commander in the Navy and is retired from the Naval Reserves. He dropped out of med school and headed for California and talked his way onto the set of Ironside where Raymond Burr gave him his first speaking role on that show.  He has also been in Dragnet, The Judge, Adam-12, Marcus Welby, MD and Conquest For The Planet of the Apes (1972), just to name a few.

After Emergency!, he appeared as Detective Sgt. Dodson (a semi-regular roll) on General Hospital for 5 years. Some more recent things you can catch him in are The Hunt For The Red October (1990) and The Flight of the Intruder (1991). Watch the credits of The Hunt For The Red October for his name as a Navy technical advisor.

Thank you Ron Pinkard for taking the time out of your very busy schedule to talk to me. And my special thanks to your great mom, Arlene Pinkard!
