  1. THE STORY OF TEMPLE DRAKE is controlled by Fox, which bought it and remade it under the original novel title SANCTUARY in 1961. IIRC from TCM's broadcast of it, the Fox logo comes up at the end of the film. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0024617/companycredits?ref_=tt_ql_dt_4
  2. Beth Howland of "Alice" TV fame died Dec. 31, but her death was just announced Tuesday, according to her wishes. http://www.nytimes.com/2016/05/25/arts/television/beth-howland-accident-prone-waitress-from-the-sitcom-alice-dies-at-74.html?_r=1
  3. I just watched her in Undercover With the K K K, a 1979 TV movie.
  4. This was a nice throwback to the first nine or 10 Queen books, which had a "challenge to the reader" inserted about 85-90 percent of the way through the book. The "challenge" was to solve the mystery/find the murderer because at this point you (and Ellery) had all the clues you needed.
  5. It's my understanding that the Columbia series of Ellery Queen films is no longer controlled by Sony/Columbia. Don't know where the rights lie now. I'd really like to see these films on TCM someday.
  6. A post on the Home Theater Forum says that today's showing of Forever Amber on FMC contained additional scenes/dialogue not present in previous FMC/home-video versions. http://www.hometheaterforum.com/topic/330361-fox-cinema-archives-debuts-18-new-classic-films-on-dvd-starting-march-18/page-24

I'm not sure--Fox might have gotten around to releasing it had they kept releasing DVD's of classic films at the rate they were going, but after 2008 they largely quit releasing older titles. I don't think the film has rights issues that are keeping it off home video.
  8. > {quote:title=JohnnyClay wrote:}{quote} > Any of you movie buffs know what ever happened to "The Blue Angel" from 1959? Much better than the 1930 version but impossible to find. FMC is showing the 1959 version at 8 a.m. ET on March 10, although it'll be in the full-screen format.
  9. I know about the rights issues--I was just mentioning that the tape is available. Warner has recently worked out the rights issues for The Constant Nymph and Night Flight, so maybe they can clear Beyond the Forest.
  10. The 1951 M is available from Nostalgia Family Video and Movies Unlimited. The MGM/UA videotape of Beyond the Forest is available from Amazon Marketplace sellers at $17.79 and up.

But the acting was good, and the relationship between Crawford and Connors was truly excellent. Other than Opy and Andy on *The Andy Griffith Show*, I can't recall another father-son relationship on TV that appeared more genuine. > In any event, loved that show and often rewatch episodes I've seen countless times. > PS: I know one disc set of *Wagon Train* has be
  12. I was flipping through the latest FilmFax magazine in a store just recently and saw an interview with Mr. Persoff in that issue. I love classic TV as much as I do classic movies, and Mr. Persoff is one of those actors who seemed to turn up at least once in every drama series. He played Jake Guzik on a few Untouchables episodes, but he could also do a comedy turn, as evidenced by his three Barney Miller appearances.
