THE HARDY BOYS

The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries (re-titled The Hardy Boys for season three) is a television mystery series based on the Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew novel series. The series, which ran from January 30, 1977 to January 14, 1979, was produced by Glen A. Larson from Universal Television for ABC.

The series starred Parker Stevenson and Shaun Cassidy as detective brothers Frank and Joe Hardy, respectively, and Pamela Sue Martin (later Janet Louise Johnson) as amateur sleuth Nancy Drew.

The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries was unusual in that it often dealt with the characters individually, in an almost anthological style. That is, some episodes featured only the Hardy Boys and others only Nancy Drew.

It is a great item almost 40 years old! Nice item for the poster fan!

MORE INFO ON PARKER STEVENSON: Richard Stevenson Parker Jr. (born June 4, 1952), known as Parker Stevenson, is an American television and film actor.

Stevenson was born on June 4, 1952, in the Main Line of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, as Richard Stevenson Parker, Jr., one of two sons of Richard Stevenson Parker, Sr., an investment advisor, by an actress who acted in numerous television commercials using the stage name Sarah Meade the latter took him to a filming session when he was five years of age. This resulted in his making two small television appearances. The elder Parker, who had moved his family to the city of Rye, New York, disapproved of the whole business, and although Richard Jr. himself appeared in a few plays at Brooks Preparatory School, he then had no intention of becoming an actor.

His first notable screen appearance was a starring role in the 1972 movie A Separate Peace; it was then that he was first credited as Parker Stevenson. After graduating from Brooks School and Princeton University, where he studied architecture, he moved to Hollywood, where he landed a role opposite Sam Elliott in the 1976 film Lifeguard.

Stevenson became well known from starring with then teen heartthrob Shaun Cassidy in The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries series, produced by Glen A. Larson's production company through MCA-Universal Television (now NBCUniversal) under license from the Stratemeyer Publication Syndicate, from 1977 to 1979 on ABC-TV. In 1983, he co-starred in the movie Stroker Ace as Burt Reynolds's brash race-car driving nemesis, Aubrey James. The film was a critical and financial failure.

In 1986, Stevenson starred as Billy Hazard in the television miniseries North and South: Book II. He co-starred with his then-wife Kirstie Alley, who portrayed his sister Virgilia Hazard. He starred on the short-lived 1988 TV series Probe in the lead role of Austin James. He was part of the original cast of Baywatch in the 1989 season, returning for the syndicated 1997 and 1998 seasons. He had a recurring role as a computer tycoon on Melrose Place during the second season. He starred in Legion. In 2014 he had a guest role on the Western/Mystery series Longmire.

Stevenson has been a serious photographer since he was young; his work can be found at his photography website, ShadowWorks.

MORE INFO ON SHAUN CASSIDY: Shaun Paul Cassidy (born September 27, 1958) is an American television producer/creator, screenwriter, and former singer and actor. He is the eldest son of Shirley Jones and Jack Cassidy. His older half-brother is David Cassidy.

He is known for starring in the television series The Hardy Boys Mysteries (1977–1979) and Breaking Away (1980–1981), as well as having several hit records in the 1970s. In the 1980s, he had a three-month stint on the daytime soap General Hospital and acted on Broadway and in the West End of London. Since the mid-1990s, Cassidy has worked exclusively as a writer/producer in television, creating a number of television series, including American Gothic, Roar and Invasion.

While still in high school, Cassidy signed a contract with Mike Curb's division of Warner Bros. Records and began recording music. His debut studio album Shaun Cassidy was initially released in Europe and Australia in 1976, and he scored a couple of hit singles in several countries, leading to an American release of that album in 1977. The multi-platinum album netted him a number-one U.S. single with "Da Doo Ron Ron" and a nomination for the Grammy Award for Best New Artist. The Eric Carmen-penned "That's Rock 'n' Roll" (which had already been a hit in Australia and Europe) was the follow-up single and peaked at No. 3. His popularity continued with the concurrent arrival of his television series, The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries, which also starred Parker Stevenson.

Cassidy's next album Born Late peaked at No. 6 on the US Top 200 Albums chart and netted the hit "Hey Deanie" (#7), also written by Carmen. His label ran the same formula as before by releasing a remake of a previous hit as the second single; this time with The Lovin' Spoonful's "Do You Believe in Magic?". It would become a moderate hit for Cassidy, peaking at No. 31.

Cassidy had released two successful albums, but by the release of his third album, 1978's Under Wraps, his teen-star appeal had begun to fade. The album just managed to crack the US top 40, peaking at No. 33, and it produced a minor hit in the song "Our Night" (US No. 80). Cassidy's 1979 album Room Service was also unsuccessful and it failed to appear on the US Top 200 Album chart. Cassidy tried a different musical approach for his next release, 1980's Wasp. The album was more rock/pop-oriented and produced by Todd Rundgren with the group Utopia as the backing band. It featured songs written by Rundgren, and cover versions including David Bowie's "Rebel, Rebel" and The Who's "So Sad About Us" among others. The album, however, was unsuccessful and became Cassidy's second album not to chart on the Billboard Album Chart.

Cassidy was eager to star in a role starring as Rogers Meyers in the ABC Friday Night Movie on April 13, 1979 called Like Normal People

"A Shaun Cassidy Special" aired on NBC television; Saturday, September 26, 1981 which features Cassidy in concert with comedic vignettes of the singer's life on the road. Special guest stars are Loni Anderson with a special appearance by Jack Albertson.

Cassidy accepted a three-month part on General Hospital as Dusty Walker a musical drifter.

Cassidy concentrated on stage acting for most of the 1980s and early 1990s. He appeared on Broadway and West End productions such as Mass Appeal and Bus Stop, as well as the American premiere of Pass/Fail at the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles. Cassidy won a Dramalogue award for his work in Mark Sheriden's Diary of a Hunger Strike at the L.A.T.C., and his final stage appearance was opposite his half-brother David in the Broadway production of Blood Brothers (which successfully ran for over a year on Broadway). It was during this production that Cassidy wrote his first television pilot, American Gothic, opening the door to a long-term contract with Universal Television.

From the late 1990s, Cassidy created, wrote, and produced numerous shows for network and cable including American Gothic, Roar (starring Heath Ledger), Cover Me, Invasion and Ruby & the Rockits. Cassidy wrote and executive produced the Amazon Studios television series Hysteria which was released for viewing in August 2014. In 2017, he became executive producer and writer for Emerald City on NBC.

Cassidy grew up in Los Angeles and New York City, attending boarding school in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, and graduating from Beverly Hills High School. In addition to an elder half-brother, David, he has two younger brothers, Patrick and Ryan Cassidy

Alongside his parents, and half-brother David, Cassidy was represented by former table tennis champion Ruth Aarons, who came from a theatrical family and found her niche later in life as a talent manager. Aarons is responsible for the successful launch of his career in 1977, and managed him during his formative years as a teen idol and musician.

In December 1979, Cassidy married model Ann Pennington. They had two children together. Cassidy was also briefly married to actress Susan Diol; they have a daughter. Since 2004, Cassidy has been married to producer Tracey Lynne Turner. They have four children.

Shaun Cassidy was married to Ann Pennington in a double ring ceremony Saturday, December 1, 1979 to his girlfriend of almost 2 years. It was a secrecy-guarded ceremony at the Unity by the Sea Church in Santa Monica. They departed on a two-week honeymoon after the wedding supper. Shaun had four best men: his long time friend David Jolliffe, and his three brothers: David, Patrick, and Ryan.

Cassidy's second wife was Susan Vanita Diol, born May 25, 1962. They were married on May 7, 1995 and divorced in March 1, 2003. They have one daughter named Juliet Jones-Diol Cassidy born on March 19, 1998.
