Honey Vicarro

Just prior to her untimely death, Carlyle was, in fact, cast as the original Neely in the hit, Jacqueline Susann's VALLEY OF THE DOLLS, a role ultimately played (or, as some critics would say, botched) by Patty Duke. Given her prior work and established range, there is no doubt that Neely could have been the role that would have catapulted Carlyle to super-stardom.


Kim CarlyleKim Carlyle - Born in Illinois in May 1938, Kim Carlyle started her professional career as a dancer. She was spotted in a chorus-line by MCA agent, Harry Struthers, who brought her to Hollywood.

The redheaded vixen was cast in B-movies, often playing the "bad girl." In 1960, she starred in Republic Films PARTY GIRL as a wayward teen. In the same year she married Struthers, who was over forty years her senior at the time.

She remained in demand throughout the early sixties, working in both, television and films.

After her divorce from Struthers in 1963 for "mental cruelty," Carlyle was romantically linked with a number of celebrities--Peter Lupus, Troy Donahue, Ringo Starr, Sandy Koufax and Jimmy Hoffa to name a few. She caught the eye of legendary producer, Gavin Hurrell, in late 1964 when she was a featured guest star on ROUTE 66. The two began a contentious love-hate relationship that continued until Carlyle's death in 1968.

Carlyle was cast as the lead in HONEY VICARRO, a vehicle tailored specifically for her by paramour, Hurrell.

Cliff de MarcoCliff dI Marco - Di Marco, an African American actor born in Charleston, S.C. in 1929, attended Notre Dame University on a football scholarship, graduating cum laude with a degree in pre-law.

Bitten by the acting bug, he studied in London, eventually joining the Royal Shakespeare Company at The Old Vic in 1951, culminating in his triumphant turn as The Moor in Othello.

Returning to the US, di Marco subsequently launched his film career with several B sword-and-sandal films, segueing to television guest spots on THE UNTOUCHABLES and DRAGNET.

Disappointed and embittered by the limitations of being a black actor in Hollywood, he was about to leave show business when he landed the role of Chad in HONEY VICARRO.

Di Marco's career was was short-lived, ending with several arrests in the late sixties for possession of marijuana and a stint in Folsom Prison for assault on his ex-wife, actress Carol Lynley (THE POSEIDON ADVENTURE, UNDER THE YUM YUM TREE).

He was paroled for good behavior in 1979. Apparently rehabilitated, di Marco settled down and sold real estate in the Phoenix area from 1980 through his retirement in 1994.

Guy WarnerGuy Warner - Born in 1925, a veteran actor of dozens of A and B pictures, as well as countless TV appearances, Warner is best known in for roles in cult horror classics such as I WAS A TEENAGE FRANKENSTEIN (1958) with Gary Conway and THE BLOB with a young Stephen McQueen as well as television series such as HAVE GUN WILL TRAVEL, THE RIFLEMAN and PERRY MASON before landing the role of Lieutenant Quigley.

After the cancellation of HONEY VICARRO, Warner continued in television with guest and recurring character roles in such fare as BRACKEN'S WORLD and BANACEK, receiving an Emmy Nomination for his performance as Detective Hickey in EMERGENCY

Anthony Smithe-JonesAnthony Smithe-Jones - Born in 1943 in working-class Manchester, Smithe-Jones displayed an early talent for music. By the time he was seventeen, he was playing bass guitar in his first band, The Dover Souls. The band produced a number of minor hits, including "Misty (Monday Morning)" and "(That'll Cost You) Two Bob."

Discovered by Hurrell playing a small role in "On a Clear Day You Can See Forever," he was cast as the charming Cockney bartender, Trevor le Bon, occasionally displaying his musical and singing skills as in, for example, Episode #21, "Close Your Eyes and I'll Kill You," in which Honey and Trevor go undercover as a Sonny and Cher-like singing duo to foil the assassination of a charismatic Senator (played by a young Robert Redford) during a Presidential campaign stop.

Upon the cancellation of HONEY VICARRO, Smithe-Jones returned to his rock-roots, eventually reuniting and touring with the Dover Souls.
