She began her TV career 62 years ago on The Johnny Carson Show. But it was I Dream of Jeannie in 1965 that made Barbara Eden a household name.  The show is still on the air in reruns, even though only 139 episodes were made during it's 5-year run.

She did a lot more than just the TV show. Eden is an accomplished singer and dancer and has acted in numerous films and stage plays since I Dream of Jeannie stopped production in 1970.

Eden will be 87 this August. But she is still on the road appearing at conventions and TV fan shows all over the world.  She recently came to Buffalo for the Nickle City Con and sat down for a conversation with our Keith Radford.
