    For my part, I'm working on a joke based upon "spirit duplicators."

    Regarding the question of how long the theatrical release of Girl on The Run was, I found the specific quote from the Huggins interview that led me to believe that it was 90 minutes.

    Huggins said that William T. Orr called him and said, "Roy, in case we can't sell this, could you expand it a little so it could be made as a 90-minute movie?" [italics mine] Huggins then went on to say that he and Marion Hargrove did this.

    This is of course not definitive proof that the film was released at that length, but it's where I got the idea. While a "90-minute" TV show is understood to be a dozen or so minutes shorter (in that era) to accommodate spots, a "90-minute" movie is expected to time out somewhere north of 80 minutes, at the least.

    My point is simply that this quote, combined with Jacqueline Beer's assertion that she appeared in Girl on The Run, suggests that the theatrical-release version was at least several minutes longer than 77 (no pun intended).

    Ooh, excellent idea! I was going for something more metaphysical, more Sedona, but your take is far more on-topic.

    Of course, it's also possible that her scene(s) was/were filmed and then deleted, possibly for time. It's very common for actors to be entirely dropped from movies and (especially) TV shows for any number of reasons, not just time limits. I've done it myself.

    Mike, as you suggest, Occam's razor applies here. The simplest answer is that the 77-minute version is the only version that ever saw the light of day. All Jacqueline Beer knows is that she performed some filmed scenes as Suzanne in Girl on The Run. It's not likely she traveled to the Caribbean to watch the film in a theater for the week that it ran there so that she could verify that she made it onto the screen.

    As far as the direct evidence goes, the search for any version of Girl on The Run longer than 77 minutes is a mare's nest. There is no extant evidence that such a version ever existed. If it did, it's apparently lost to history.

    I still think, based upon the testimony, that a longer version once existed. A screenwriter, told to write a 90-minute screenplay, is going to write a 90-page script. There is a direct correlation here.

    Ms. Randall appeared in 3 episodes of 77 Sunset Strip. A heavy smoker, she unfortunately died of lung cancer at the young age of 49.
    Ironically, here she appears in a Newport Cigarette commercial. If these commercials weren't eventually banned from TV because of their health issues, they certainly should have been for their truly awful scripted content.

    Pretty sure. It is reported as so. The gal at the end certainly looks like her.

    That's not Sue Randall in that Newport commercial.

    This is, however, Raquel Welch with Efrem Zimbalist, Jr.

    gettyimages-463812800-1024x1024.

    gettyimages-463812756-1024x1024.




    I talked about Efrem's hosting THE HOLLYWOOD PALACE, back before I started posting pictures. There was speculation that since Louis Quinn was on the show, in his Roscoe outfit, that maybe they were going bring back Roscoe for the remaining episodes of 77SS Season 6. But that didn't happen since 77SS was cancelled. The last new episode of 77SS, S6, was broadcast on Feb. 7, 1964.
    gettyimages-463812952-1024x1024.

    Efrem Z's hosting stint on THE HOLLYWOOD PALACE was broadcast on Feb. 29, 1964. But it might have been filmed (or taped) months before. It would be nice to know what Efrem and Louis talked about on the HP episode, about 77SS, if anything. There are about 75 HOLLYWOOD PALACE episodes on YouTube, but not this one, S1Ep9.

    Great photos and thanks for confirming my doubt about Sue Randall being in that spot. I said long ago that with the softening of Stu’s character in season 6, if the show had been allowed to finish the season I would have expected Roscoe to show up and possibly Suzanne and JR too.

    Gene was a short dude. Known for dancing in white socks and penny loafers (e.g. American in Paris), I always wondered if Michael Jackson purposely borrowed that look from Gene in may of his own routines.

    It was also a couture many of us wore in high school in the early 60's. "Cool" is measured in eras.
