Vonnegut found himself very pleased by the results, remarking of his stories that “TV can do them very well,” and especially praising “More Stately Mansions,” above, starring an irrepressible Madeline Kahn, whom he called “a superb actress.” Another very direct, witty speculative writer in the same year’s issue of The Cable Guide , Ray Bradbury, appeared with Vonnegut as part of two “dueling, short features,” notes Nick Greene at Mental Floss , “under the auspices of promoting the authorsupcoming cable specials,” Monkey House and The Ray Bradbury Theater . Bradbury was also an old media hand, having written for radio in the 50s, and seeing adaptations of his stories made since that decade, including one o n Alfred Hitchcock’s Alfred Hitchcock Presents . Like Hitchcock, when it came time for his own show, The Ray Bradbury Theater in 1985, Bradbury introduced the episodes and became a public face for thousands of viewers.
