I think it's safe to say that of the core group of DS alumni none went on to super stardom after the show was cancelled though most did receive steady character actor work on television and the stage. Other than Joan Bennett's earlier success in Hollywood only Kate Jackson became a Hollywood star but having only appeared in 70 episodes she could hardly be considered a main cog of the show's success. Then again, the show probably would have lost some of its luster if Frid and Selby would have been in a bunch of Hollywood schlock. Anyhow, this is an article on David Selby and Roger Davis and work they were doing outside of DS at the time of the printing and being that it is a Kentucky newspaper and Davis was a native son it focuses mainly on him with some additional biographical information.
