    77 Sunset Strip / Hawaiian Eye, etc.

    Rob, all of the characters you mentioned (except Donald Duck and Huey, Dewey and Louie) were created by the great Carl Barks (but I guess you know that) and I have been a lifelong fan and collector of his work. In fact, I own four complete editions of his stories; two hardcover editions in...

    Another attempt... That's the best I could come up with. Just dropping by, been pretty busy lately with my own vintage photos for a photo book project.

    77 Sunset Strip / Hawaiian Eye, etc.

    Unfortunately, not every episode. S5 in particular is a tough case for anyone without access to MeTV, some of those eps are simply not there, not anywhere on the net. With the generous help of a good friend I finally managed to collect all but one, and that one is 5-30 The Heartbeat Caper. Don't...

    Jeff, you can watch Alimony League here: That's where I got my copy. Better than nothing, and at least it's uncut. Still hoping for WB to see the light some day while we're still alive...

    77 Sunset Strip / Hawaiian Eye, etc.

    While I am in no way an expert on Bourbon Street Beat, I have always had a soft spot for this show, because 77SS and BSB were the only two of the WB detective shows that I had opportunity to see in my younger days. (Surfside 6 and Hawaiian Eye sadly never made it to our shores.) BSB got a very...

    3D HTF TOP 30 MUST OWN 3D TITLES

    Disney's new live-action DUMBO has suddenly popped up as a 3D preorder on Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.de. Is this for real?! I thought Disney was out of the game for good? Release date for Germany is listed as Aug. 8, UK still unknown.

    :lol: I had never looked at it that way, but you're absolutely right!

    77 Sunset Strip / Hawaiian Eye, etc.

    I found this full-page magazine shot last year when my sister and I had to clean out the attic of our parents' house where it had been laying around for decades. Too bad there is no publication date anywhere to be found, but from the style of it I would guess very early 60s. It's obviously a...

    77 Sunset Strip / Hawaiian Eye, etc.

    During our early visits in the 80s, wifey and I always stayed at some motel in Hollywood, mainly because it was easy to get almost anywhere fast from there. Later on, when the rates in Hollywood began to increase dramatically, we discovered Pasadena as a real nice base of operations, and a very...

    77 Sunset Strip / Hawaiian Eye, etc.

    Oh yes, those memories... Driving north on Hollywood Blvd... getting off on Barham Blvd, crossing the L.A. River to W. Olive, and then the Smoke House coming up to the left and WB studios straight ahead. Don't know how many times I took that ride, and each time I thought, "gotta visit that Smoke...

    Collecting Poll

    I bought my first VCR in late 1977, it was a Philips VCR longplay which used rather bulky tapes. At the time I was not aware that shortly thereafter Betamax and VHS would enter the scene and make VCR longplay obsolete. A 3-hour cassette for VCRlp was about $30 IIRC, so it was no wonder that by...

    Funny how some things seem to be the same all over the world. It was exactly as you describe it at my school.

    Don, thanks for reviving my 2017 B&S Xmas and New Year’s card - glad you liked it! And a happy New Year for you and everybody else in this forum, too! The new year started over here a little over half an hour ago and we’ve been under heavy artillery attack for most of the time since then... Just...

    Question for the people wanting the Warner detective shows.

    You're right, the third and fourth season of Maverick were/are $48 (S3 currently down to $36). And I didn't mind at all, because Maverick was also one of my holy grails. I had seen only a precious few episodes in the sixties, and after that one run, it was never ever seen again over here. I...
