----------------------------
From the Sydney Morning Herald TV guide, April 15 1969

The cameras follow the multi-millionaires as they go about their business and snoops" into their private lives. Their discussions and conversations with their wives are "overheard and they are seen relaxing at dinner and entertaining themselves." The quartet talk about their formula for success. It is a documentary to make the viewer envious while shedding light on the lives of these fantastically rich men. It will be the final program in the present series of "Impact". some truth to the old saying that Texans can be divided into the "haves" and the "have-mores." The documentary will be shown in the channel's "Impact" series and is titled "The Plutocrats Rich, Super Rich. Texas Rich." The documentary takes a close look at some of the "have-mores." They are four multimillionaires. H. L. Hunt, the richest Texan of them all: oil-man David Harold Byrd: Stanley Marcus, head of the famous Dallas department store Neiman-Marcus and Roy Mark Hofheinz, claimed to be A documentary, showing the lives of Texan multimillionaires, will be telecast by ABN Channel 2 tomorrow night at 8.53. TO the rest of the world, Texas is a place where there are as many millionaires to the acre as there are oil wells. This view is exaggerated...

------------------
Roy Mark Hofheinz (April 10, 1912 – November 22, 1982), popularly known as Judge Hofheinz or "The Judge", was a Texas state representative from 1934 to 1936, county judge of Harris County, Texas from 1936 to 1944, and mayor of the city of Houston from 1953 to 1955.

....  He acted as campaign manager for Lyndon B. Johnson during Johnson's rise to the position of Congressman and then Senator...

Byrd, Stanley Marcus and Ray Mark Hofheinz The PMocnte A Group W special about four Texas multi-millionaires.  Texas Millionaire Special Tonight, Candid, Some o the business dealings, persona vagaries and life styles-plain and fancy-of four of the riches T e x a s multimillionaires are f'lmed candidly and amusing!' in "The Plutocrats," the Grou] W television special' tonigh from 8:30 - 9:30 p.m. on Chan nel 5. The four featured Texans art. H. L. «unt, David Harold Byrd and Stanley Marcus of Dallas and Roy Mark Hofheinz o Houston. Cameras poke into the private life of Hunt, the richest and the most frugal Texan of all, am reveal him as a man of few pleasures. He daily carries his lunch to work w'th him in a brown paper bag, nand does noi own a fleet of Cadillacs, a string of race horses or a luxury yacht. * * * HE SELDOM takes a holiday, rarely leaving his rather modest lome in 'Dallas. His chief avocation is the Facts Forum, a foundation producing radio and television programs deal'ng with national issues. D. «. Byrd, sometimes called 'Dry Hole" Byrd by his friends or having drilled 56 consecutive dry holes before getting his first oil gusher, is revealed as a cattleman, airplane manufacturer nd hobbyist, big-game hunter, and husband of a multimillion- aire in her own right who com m i s s i o n s immense and expensive religious oil paintings one of the most recent 20-by-12 feet costing more than $2.5 mil lion. Along with a look at Marcus head of Neiman-Marcus, th program provides a peek at hi .internationally (famous Dalla department store.

The Sunday Times of London said: "Mr. Batty elicited many strange facts about the way his quartet of Texan multimillionaires spend their money, and le caught very well the ethos of heir curious Kves. It was totally complusive." The London Daily Telegraph wrote: "The fascination of such riches is unfailing for the rest of us, and Mr. Batty added to this y cleverly choosing four men whose commonplace manner was set off by great flamboyance either of personal surrounding or attitude."
