At a presidential get-together in San Clemente June of 1973, Leonid Brezhnev hit it off so well with Actor Chuck Connors that the Soviet party leader invited Connors to look him up sometime. Connors left for Moscow the following week. He stopped by the White House to say 'dosvidaniya' to the host whose party was said to have started it all, and who was counting on the trip to help repair some of the damage to East-West détente caused by the Middle East war. 'The President gave me about two dozen presidential tie clips and ladies' pins, with instructions to spread them around when I thought it appropriate,' said Connors. Brezhnev got more than a tie clip. He ordered two engraved Colt revolvers for the General Secretary, Connors added. Brezhnev is quite a western buff.
