  1. Sid Caeser was in It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World with Dick Shawn
  2. You said you are also interested in TV shows about cattle drives, so by all means don't forget "Rawhide" - the tv show that gave Clint Eastwood his start back in the late 50's and early 60's. The first 2 or 3 seasons are out on DVD now. You may also enjoy the mini-series "Centennial", about the establishment and growth of a small Colorado town.

  6. I agree with markfp2, my favorite war film of all time is Battleground. I like it best for a number of reasons. First of all, it was made in 1949, which was still at a time when the war was fresh on people's memories, and so the attitudes and language (with the exception of a lack of profanity) accurately reflected the way people talked and behaved in the 1940's.
