    It looks like it was released last December. Here are the details:


    Locked away for decades, all five Michael Shayne films made at PRC Studios are making their DVD debut in this special collection from ClassicFlix!


    The DVD finally arrived, Lawrence A., and I can hardly wait to start watching. I guess being cooped up only makes this collection even more enticing, although I was pretty excited to find it before all the pandemic horror really got under way. I'll be interested to see how Hugh Beaumont compares to Lloyd Nolan.

     I've watched it on Hulu...let's just say Carl Reiner was VERY smart to re-cast and re-tool the show...it's pretty awful.  There's a colorized version of it on youtube...I tried posting the link here but the whole thing popped up...just  search: Head of the Family 1961 Carl Reiner


    I heard the same about the pilot, but I haven't seen it. Still want to, though!

    I hate to think of anyone waiting for Sunday! (or sitting through those awful sick kid/hurt doggie ads on ota tv)...if you don't have Hulu (which has all the episodes) y  ou can stream it anytime, anywhere at Uncle Earl's Classic tv site....here's the link to the Dick Van Dyke episodes  https://www.solie.org/alibrary/TheDickVanDykeShow.html

    love the site...it's a gold mine of classic tv--a lot easier than wading through youtube...and no ads!

    This is great, Shutoo. I don't mind having Sunday nights devoted to Rob Petrie! And the ads give me a chance to another cup of tea. Don't want to let myself turn into a complete couch potato!

    I searched for the pilot episode in the list at Uncle Earl's. That's the one that I really want to see. Have you ever found it online?

    Marianne, I love The Dick Van Dyke show too!! I don't watch cable much, but I watch The Dick Dick Van Dyke Show on my Firestick!!


    Hope you and all my TCM friends are staying safe!!

    Paulll, I get MeTV over-the-air, believe it or not. There are two episodes of The Dick Van Dyke Show every Sunday night, and it's a wonderful way to forget all my troubles. (Pandemic? What pandemic? There isn't one for at least  one hour on Sundays!)

    Stay well, one and all!

    Jerry Van Dyke played in Palm Springs Weekend

    and on his brother's show--Animated GIF


    George Segal plays the banjo too, but I couldn't think of any films he played it in...

    That Dick Van Dyke episode is a two-parter, I believe, and poor Jerry is too shy to play in front of others. (I'm going to confess that I still watch The Dick Van Dyke Show on MeTV, Sunday nights. Anybody else?!)

    George Segal played the banjo on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. Both he and his wife played for Johnny. His wife was his age, someone he met at a class reunion, which made an impression on me. He and his wife seemed just like regular folks, not big stars at all. His love story could be anybody's love story, and I took that as a huge plus for him and his wife.

    I think I have seen this advertised in some catalogs lately.  Such as moviesunlimited.com, oldies.com, ccvideo.com, kino.com, etc.  We get several catalogs for DVD's.  

    Haven't seen the Beaumont versions, but do have the Lloyd Nolan versions.  Ironically the DVD set is Volume One, but have never seen a Volume Two.  A while back one of the independent stations in this area would broadcast the old Michael Shayne TV shows.  Very poor quality sometimes, but sometimes interesting.

    I have tried, in vain, to find Volume Two of the Lloyd Nolan as Michael Shayne films. Those films can be found on individual DVDs, however.

  8. It Came from Outer Space (1953)

    It Came from Beneath the Sea (1955)

    The Russians Are Coming, the Russians Are Coming (1966). The title is in the present tense, but I hope it still fits the category.

    They Came from Beyond Space (1967)

    Coming to America (1988)

    Interesting way to interpret this particular theme. You could probably also add THE SECRET LIFE OF WALTER MITTY (1947) and SUNSET BOULEVARD (1950).

    And there's another Woody Allen film, Alice (1990), that could be added to this category.

    Thanks, LawrenceA.

    I did find this eventually, but first I almost logged on to something called classicflixunderground, and my browser sent up warning flags.

    I wondered, Can classic film fans be scammed by DVD releases? Maybe!☺️
