Dean Stockwell's Credits

[Minor corrections; new additions in "TV" and "TV Movies."
Only films and made-for-television movies are listed 
alphabetically; all other categories are listed chronologically. 
As usual, suggestions are always welcome. 
	--Robin C. Kwong (rck1@midway.uchicago.edu) Feb. 21, 1994]


General Notes:

        For the sake of convenience I have attempted to mark SOME
        of these entries according to how much Dean appears in each
        of them. Since many of these are based on written
        references and not necessarily by personal viewing, please
        *don't* just take my word for it!

        t = title character
        m = major role (NOT necessarily less than that of a title
                character role)
        fm = fairly major (i.e., not a biggie but an important
                character nonetheless)
        s = small, minor role
        Again, these categories are extremely difficult to define

	Dates are given in month/day/year format, with the
	occasional year/year given when discrepancies have been 
	found among various sources.

	Producers and studios are given whenever possible.



	[NOTE: The list may not be very complete for credits after
	mid-1988. Epsiode titles are given in quotes, with the
	first air date in parentheses, followed by the original
	network. If more than one appearance was made in a series,.
	the total number of appearances is listed after the first
	entry in a series. Made-for-TV films are listed separately
	at the end. 

	Primary source of credits: _The_Complete_Actors'_
	Television_Credits,_1948-1988_ Vol. 1 (Parish & Terrace)

	Television interviews are not listed due to lack of 
	information. The same goes for appearances/nominations on
	various award programs, with the exception of appearances as a
	presenter. Are there any requests for such entries? If so, 
	does anyone have any info to contribute?

	Corrections/additions welcome!]
