Austin television personality Carolyn Jackson interviews actor Robert Stack, who has just finished filming the 1975 CBS special "Adventures of the Queen." Stack discusses the challenges of working in television and his mixed feelings about the television series as an entity. Other topics covered include Stack's enduring fame from his role as Eliot Ness in the television series The Untouchables and his upcoming projects. The two also discuss at length Stack's portrayal of Sam Houston in the 1975 television special, The Honorable Sam Houston.

Carolyn Jackson was on the air in Austin as a daytime lifestyle show host during the late 1960s and 1970s. She began her broadcast career when she joined KTBC in 1968 as the host of Women's World, which was later renamed The Carolyn Jackson Show. In the late 1970s, Jackson moved the show to KTVV (now NBC affiliate KXAN.)

These excerpts represent a small sample of Jackson's work. The bulk of her collection is made up of interviews with Texas personalities or from Hollywood film release press junkets, but the collection also includes feature stories, outtakes, and behind the scenes clips.
