Re: UNTOUCHABLES' Abel Fernandez (reply)
I think it's Michael Dante and Nat King Cole between Bobby Darin and Milton Berle. I was reading about Frank Faylen recently and noticed he was married to gorgeous Carol Hughes from the third Flash Gordon serial. Their daughter was...

Re: Steve London (reply)
The cover photos used on the Untouchables DVDs were from a photo session that Steve London missed, but included Paul Picerni. When the first season was announced they had Paul Picerni on the cover. Fans complained, since Picerni was...

Great find, FourColorFan! Thanks! Hitler and Citizen Kane too! Wells sounds like Inspector Fenwick. The Welles/Wells video links to "The Night America Trembled". YouTube is a wonderful place.

Re: THE NIGHT THAT PANICKED AMERICA (1975) (reply)
Thanks, Rick, I'd like to see that. I think scenes from the "The Night America Trembled" were used in the American Experience episode about the radio broadcast. THE NIGHT THAT PANICKED AMERICA, was released on DVD-R in 2014 on the CBSTV...

Re: Robert Loggia (reply)
Robert Loggia gave a very enthusiastic interview on the Elfego Baca/Swamp Fox Disney Treasure DVD. When Loggia was doing Mancuso, FBI, he was tricked by one of those blooper practical joke shows. They sent a fake FBI agent to question...

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.

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....
