Sorry I did not answer your question. Hit me when you asked about Downton Abbey on that thread. Downton reminds me a great deal of an updated Peyton Place. The producer of Downton credits the American night time soap as the pace he wanted to use when creating Downton.
The answer to your question on Mr Rosin's book is I do not know. I wish I could be of more help to you.
I still hope that this year the 50th anniversary of Peyton Place will give us a complete series release. I do not care if it is restored or not. I just want all episodes out there for fans to enjoy.
Peyton Place is the last 60s drama that has yet to receive a complete release. I still hope MPI has an interest in the show. I know that Fox has not given MPI rights to FOX series before and I hope this has changed. I hope it has changed even if MPI does not get the rights to Peyton Place.
I wish Shout would renew an interest in the series. I have said before the two volumes which Shout gave us is far above any copies you might buy. I have been told from fans on PP message boards of the incomplete episodes and bad quality episodes they receive and even episodes that cost a great deal. I speak of this only to caution fans that what you get may not be something you will like.
I wish Shout could get the show on the cheap from Fox and put it out as a series release I feel Shout could make money on Peyton Place in this way. Fans are more willing to buy if they know they will get all the episodes instead of the worry the show will be halted for some reason as it was after the first two volumes from Shout.
I just hope that a 50th Anniversary Limited Edition could come out. MPI did it with 1225 Dark Shadows episodes in a coffin set and was a sell out at Amazon. Peyton Place has only 514 episodes minus the 50 plus episodes Shout released.
I always say I wish people could see how good these episodes look without restoration and just from my recordings.
I just want to see the series put out the way Shout Factory did it. I also want to thank Shout Factory as I have in the past for at least giving the show a chance.
I know CBS took over Dynasty from Fox after year one. I assume however because Dynasty was not really a Fox show is the reason. I would love for CBS to grab the distribution rights for Peyton Place but PP is a Fox show which may be the reason CBS would not.
Charles brought up Time Life and I would love that too. Shout Factory or MPI are the two whom I wish would consider it.
