    Press Release MPI Press Release: The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet Seasons 1 & 2 (DVD)

    The episodes are from 35mm. The only 16 mm used was for replacement where the 35’s had deteriorated or had missing sections.

    Press Release MPI Press Release: The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet Seasons 1 & 2 (DVD)

    Cutting the negatives was not an unusual practice when preparing network shows for syndication early on. CBS made cuts in the negatives of I Love Lucy episodes to remove references to Philip Morris cigarettes as well as the original animated opens and did not save the cuts. To put together the...

    Ozzie & Harriet

    The TimeLife sets of the show are mostly five episodes to a disc and they look and play fine and they carry the MPI logo on the discs.

    77 Sunset Strip / Hawaiian Eye, etc.

    It’s called window boxing. But it appears that’s a function of the tv station or cable system broadcasting the signal.

    77 Sunset Strip / Hawaiian Eye, etc.

    I know it was a little of both when MeTV was running 77 Sunset Strip. A few episodes that I was very familiar with had cuts that I immediately noticed. Also a few times the end credits started out sounding like The Chipmunks and then quickly slowed down. I’ve heard that same credits speed...

    Additional trivia. It’s Jay Jackson and he was also the voice on the “Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet” episodes that were sponsored by Eastman Kodak Company.

    The Adventures of Superman

    And it was scanned from a 16mm print in very poor condition. Hard to believe they had nothing better to use.

    The Adventures of Superman

    Bob, I think those dupe opticals always looked terrible, even watching on tv once they started running those episodes in color.

    MeTV and the Soap-Opera effect

    Correction. I didn’t notice you were watching on syfy. I’m watching on Decades.

    MeTV and the Soap-Opera effect

    Not where I’m watching except for the episodes that were shot on tape instead of film.

    77 Sunset Strip / Hawaiian Eye, etc.

    Reimers did the “from the entertainment capital of the world” open but the voice on the 77 main title is someone else, but who?

    Great post. IMDb confirms that’s Yvonne doing her own vocals.

    Ozzie & Harriet

    Just to clarify, the family did not sell any prints directly to collectors. There was an initial sale of prints to Blackhawk Films who in turn sold them thru their mail order catalog. Many years later David sold multiple prints of most episodes to Gaines 16 Film Company in order to reduce...

    77 Sunset Strip / Hawaiian Eye, etc.

    I’ll have to respectfully disagree. Sinatra put this together. Dean certainly could have said no. They had been seen together at least 3 times during that 20 year separation but this was a genuinely warm moment. Those smiles aren’t pasted on. And yes it was about time. That’s my two cents.

    Ozzie & Harriet

    The first season episodes had a “copyright 1952 Ozzie Nelson” marking but future seasons eliminated the year.

    Ozzie & Harriet

    Most of them look a lot better especially if watching on a larger screen size. The Shout transfers were mostly older transfers from 35mm prints. These are mostly from the 35mm negatives. Sharp and clear.
