Franchot Tone as Stu Bailey:
Sorry I got the dates wrong. "Girl on the Run" is airing right now as I type this and will be shown again at 12:30 a.m. eastern time Saturday morning, March 11th.Is this an old post that got reposted? This Friday (today) is not May 9th. It is March 10th. Confusing post.
I have a version on DVD-R which appears to missing at least one scene. Stu Bailey shows up without any introduction at all, no meeting with his client, etc. I saw "Girl on the Run" on TV so long ago that I barely remember it.Compared to a showing on some channel years ago that used a star as its logo, Decades version of "Girl on the Run" was about two minutes shorter. And the star logo copy was slightly sped up compared the Decades airing, though Decades had better video and audio. In fact both showings had sequences the other didn't. Probably around 73 minutes taking footage from both...and that may not be complete either.
I don't know what happened with my Tivo recording of Part 2, on 3/23, it didn't record it. Part 1 recorded, then Tivo just skipped over Part 2 for some reason. Grrrrrr.Mark, METV did run Part 1 yesterday, 4 AM EST Wednesday. I wish they were running them Monday AM thru Friday AM instead of Tuesday AM thru Saturday AM, it would be less confusing.
Pretty much every Warner actor went through contract disputes with the company as they just did not get treated very well nor paid very well. Connie Stevens, James Garner, Wayde Preston, etc. It's a long list. That's why Garner left Maverick after season 3. Roger Moore replaced him but left as soon as his contract was up. That's why you have the Sunny Day (Tina Cole) episodes of Hawaiian Eye in the 4th season.He had a contractual dispute, not sure which season that was though.
A reminder to all who are following this series that "The Silent Caper" is coming up this Thursday morning. I remember watching this episode when it originally aired. I was 10 years old and thought it was the greatest thing ever.After those two, it's "The Silent Caper". This episode was written by Roger Smith, and is inventive and well remembered for not having any spoken dialog. (The most fun episode of 77, is another Roger Smith story, "Once Upon A Caper", but that's a third season episode that won't air for a few more weeks.)
