  This is Francis X. Bushman: Holy Oversight?

 Unless I missed something on it earlier in the Francis X. Bushman documentary, mention of the BATMAN two-parts sendup of the silent movies which guested the silent star, "THE RIDDLER'S FALSE NOTION"/"DEATH IN SLOW MOTION", is conspicuously missing near the end. Bushman died just months after the television episodes were originally broadcast!

Perhaps the documentarians considered it a mere footnote at the end of his long career?

 They did include a pair of cheesy films he appeared as his career was winding down, and it's interesting that his final role he was seen in while he was still alive was silent movie-related: It rated mention!

 The STRATTON STORY reminded me of how natural Hall of Fame catcher Bill Dickey seems in front of the camera. True, he was simply playing himself in the aforementioned 1949 film and the earlier THE PRIDE OF THE YANKEES (1942), but the tall and personable Dickey definitely does not seem out of his league on the big screen.
