Barbara Stanwyck taking time off from the Big Valley is my conception of the perfect Black Window (still alluring then even with white hair)

Re: Third Season Queries and What Ifs

I got the sense that Frank knew he had to come back once in the wake of being replaced by John Astin that he needed to re-establish himself as THE Riddler. Even as he was absent from the show in S2 working Vegas etc. and arguing with Dozier over the money, he still liked to bask in the stature of be...

Kallman had starred in his own show "Hank" several years before that lasted just a season.

Re: "Fine Finny Fiends"....Changes From Script To Production

You're welcome! I admit I like this episode because the plot is pretty good (though the explanation for getting out of the trap is weak) and Julie Gregg's performance is a great acting job since she's playing something she wasn't at all.

Re: "Fine Finny Fiends"....Changes From Script To Production

Bumping this thread since I finished scanning my copy of the script. This way everyone else can study the changes from script to production.

Re: SCRIPT: KING TUT'S COUP, a.k.a. TUT TUT TUT

And remember, Joan Collins was publicly considered for the role of Cleopatra once upon a time. :) The original treatment reveals that the rumor that the Lisa character was supposed to be Mayor Linseed's daughter initially isn't true. From the very beginning the character is described as the daughter...

Hedda Hopper broke the news about her getting the part nine years before it happened! :) (it's actually about her role in "Rally Round The Flag")

Re: Other Great 60s Shows...

Presumably Hoyt Curtain who did most everything for Hanna-Barbera though that's not a given.

"Danger Island" also included Frank Aletter, who at the time was married to Lee Meriwether and had previously been in the series "It's About Time."

A long, remarkable career for her and she has been a survivor. It is so hard to think of her to be the age she is now.

Re: Other Great 60s Shows...

The Golden Age of TV for me begins in 1955 with the debut of shows like "Gunsmoke" and "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" and represents part of a growing shift away from the live dramas of New York and more emergence of TV as a filmed storytelling medium. It's also when I start seeing more and more the fa...

Re: TO THE BATPOLES #110: "The Impossible Crimes": Semple holds Stadd’s Feet to the Fire

And to add to my point about how the characters of Miss Alliance and Daphne should have been combined so that Miss Alliance could turn on Joker and then help tip Batman off as to where to nab him, this would also have taken care of the problem of the too-short tag since it could have given us a comm...
