Re: Which Batman is YOUR Batman? Other superheroes welcome. (reply)
Batman 1968 or so for me with Irv Novick's long run as lead Batman artist. Robin was shipped off to college, the Rogues Gallery was retired, and Batman drove a little blue sports car with smoked windows to be more stealthy. Infantino was...

Re: Moriarty (reply)
The bust smashing went on in the Granada "Six Napoleons". I'd have to watch it again to see if Moriarty was mentioned. I think no since the story appears after "The Final Problem" in the TV series. Maybe you are thinking of "Pearl of...

Re: Moriarty (reply)
The Six Napoleons came later. "The Red Headed League" was right before "The Final Problem" in the Brett series. I thought they had mentioned Moriarty before in previous episodes too, but I don't remember either. IMDB lists Eric Porter...

Re: Moriarty (reply)
I understand why they did it. But it was just jarring to me to see Moriarty show up as the mastermind in a otherwise pretty funny Holmes story like "The Red Headed League". It probably would not have bothered me if they added Moriarty...

Re: Moriarty (reply)
I never liked the prominence of Moriarty in the various TV Holmes versions. Even the Brett series felt the need to graft Moriarty onto the "Red Headed League" episode. The Moriarty's really being behind every crime thing is silly. I...

Re: The Untouchables (reply)
It's worth buying the Season 4 DVDs just to get the episode: "Globe of Death" with Barry Morse. Fast moving story with a great guest cast and some funny Ness-Nitti moments.

Re: 77 Sunset Strip: A Semi-Comprehensive Overview  (reply)
I remember they called it the heroes' franchise, the reason he helps different characters every week. Kimble was the man on the run. Paul Bryan was running for his life to have some adventure before he died. Buzz, Todd, and Bronson were...

What a great picture! I cheated by searching online, and found a slightly different photo from the same event, from the Bob Hope Collection, at the Library of Congress site, which identified everybody, so I won't reveal Frances Gifford....

Re: I love PERRY MASON 1957-1966  (reply)
I am watching the PERRY MASON Season 9 DVDs, and I think I spotted young Raquel Welch in two episodes as an extra. This would have been 1965 before she hit it big.In "The Case of the Carefree Coronary" she's one of the nurses attending...

Re: TORCHY BLANE (reply)
This is my theory: Series films were often made back to back, and not always released in the order they were made. It's possible that "Panama" was made after all the Farrell's, but shown earlier for some reason. A close look at the...

Re: THE FUGITIVE (reply)
It may be different now, but back then I think small businesses had to have over a certain number of employees, before they were required to pay into Social Security for their employees, or have a health plan. A lot of Kimble's jobs...
