I DID that already.   Got NO response.

Spoke to someone in Bellingham, Washington who works at that affiliate of ME-TV. She confirmed what I thought. Combat at some point will return. In her 6 years of working there, she said every show eventually returns and they just shift them around. So at some point you'll see COMBAT return to ME-TV. I asked her for the corporate phone number, but she said they weren't allowed to give it out, but instead gave me the address.The corporate office address is ME-TV, 26 N AHLSTED Street, Chicago, Ill 60661- If you get no response to the email you sent you can always write to the corporate office and complain.

Interesting. Thanks for providing the address, lavender. Good to have for future reference!

Vautrin, ever catch the film, WONDERLAND (2003)? I know it received mixed reviews when it was released, but I thought it was fairly well done and that Val Kilmer was excellent as the man in question here.

 

(...not a bad film about the seedy side of L.A., I always thought)

I liked "Wonderland" too.  In the end, very sad, as what usually happened to porn stars in the 70's and 80's.  "Boogie Nights" was the same way, but I thought it accurately depicted the--ahem-- rise and fall of adult entertainers and what they had to do to stay relevant in their industry, and all the pitfalls associated with that.

Here's a user review I found on the IMDB for BLACK FRIDAY (1940)...written by someone named Christopher Greenleaf:

 

In Black Friday, Stanley Ridges delivers one of the most incredible performances I have even seen commited to celluloid.As the meek University professor who unknowing receives part of a dead gangster's brain, Ridges is amazing.When the gangsters personality surfaces, Ridge's speech and mannerisms are transformed.He is convincing as a brutal, homicidal gangster and seems like a different actor.He steals the film easily from Lugosi and Karloff (No simple task!) and leaves you spellbound throughout.This one is worth the rental!

 

Or in this case, worth the Me-TV broadcast on Saturday night... :)

Stanley Ridges kinda reminds me of the dracula-ized Onslow Stevens from House of Dracula. :)

 

Ridges was in so many films. He played a shanghaied sailor in The Sea Wolf and the government prosecutor in Confessions of a Nazi Spy.

Yes-- I wasn't too familiar with him, until I looked up this film.

Maybe Ward and June were right to warn Wally and Beaver about Eddie.

As I assume you already know, this is another urban legend that has been

out there for a long time. There is a slight resemblance between John Holmes

and Ken Osmond, but that's as far as it goes. Besides, a motorcycle cop/porn

actor would be a pretty strange combo. :)

 

For a writer,  a motorcycle cop/porn star is a perfect combination.

i'm enjoying the 'alfred hitchcock presents' marathon me-tv is airing for halloween.

 

some of the episodes are hit or miss; yet entertaining nonetheless.

 

Good for you. That's what makes Me-TV so great. They are not trying to show TV programs from 2010.

Svengoolie is risking his reputation with showing some good quality.

Yeah, I can't tell you how excited I truly am about BLACK FRIDAY. Though it would have been better, in my opinion, if they had aired it after Thanksgiving.

Well I'm psyched! According to my Svengoolie email:

 

Nov 22 THE GHOST & MR CHICKEN

 

I was just talking about this to MrTeek. It totally scared me as a kid but I just held in there knowing it was a hoax haunting. Gotta record it so the kid can see Don Knotts at his best. It's sad to think Knott's comedy is virtually unknown to millenials.

 

Reta Shaw, as always, makes a notable appearance as a psychic. 

 

I love when Svengoolie shows these "horror comedies" which I think are much stronger than the typical Universal horror. He also shows fave MUNSTER GO HOME as well as several Abbott & Costello..

 

Also in the schedule:

Nov 29th Black Cat

(the Karloff/Lugosi version, NOT the one we ran recently)

Some may say that that's the millenials' good fortune.
