You weren't kidding. I looked this up on the internet and found this image of what might be the last issue where Margie meets The Beatles!Always thought it interesting that the "My Little Margie" comic book (published by lowly Charlton) last all the way to 1964, outlasting the tv-series by almost a decade.
Hey Neil, a while back someone mentioned that they knew someone with the entire run of My Little Margie uncut on tape in good quality . I can' t remember if it was you. In any case, there's a chance those episodes wound up with Nostalgia Family .The VCI sets are just random episodes. No rhyme or reason to what they are, other than that was what they had access to. The company putting this out has a full run of the show, complete and uncut, and they are planning to release the entire series. Finally!. I would love for Network to put out the Gale Storm Show but they haven't shown much interest in the ITC shows that were produced for the American market. I just got in around 2/3 of the show from 16mm transfers so I'm not holding my breath waiting for a DVD release.
Yes, that's where I met her - I signed at those shows, starting at the Beverly Garland and then at the hotel across from the Burbank airport, so when things were slow we'd all go around and chat with each other. I got her book, which is very frank and good.I remember seeing her regularly at autograph show conventions in the Los Angeles area during the 1990s. I never got (i.e. purchased) her autograph, though, since I was on a budget, and I wasn't even born when "My Little Margie" was on, but I was familiar with her, probably from "The Love Boat" or other guest-starring TV roles. She still had a sweet face.
I could not find NFV online at all as well as the DVD of One Happy Family. Can you or anyone shed some light? thanksI have this ordered, and hope it arrives this week. NFV also released some individual volumes of "One Happy Family" (5 episodes of the short-lived 1962 sitcom), "The George Burns Show" (3 episodes of the post-Gracie season, circa 1958), and "The Everglades" (3 episodes). I received these latter three discs, and they all look surprisingly good. 16mm, but really, really nice 16mm sources.
Never mind, I found it. It's the same episodes that were shown on Decades, which I figured was probably going to be the case. If they were different episodes I would have bought it.I could not find NFV online at all as well as the DVD of One Happy Family. Can you or anyone shed some light? thanks
I always thought that Nostalgia family , (and Nostalgia Merchant) were companies that deal in Public Domain releases .I thought it was established that Nostalgia Family Video were bootleggers?
I really don't want to support them by purchasing this if that is the case.
Here is a link from this forum:
I would have to believe that David Shepard would have known a bit more about pirates than I:
Yeah, I hear you. There's some total D-list celebs there nowadays, trying to get $50, $75 dollars even. I mean, I'm more famous than some of those people, and I was only ever an extra !I hate the people Ray Courts sold the show to, and have refused to do them every since. He never should have moved from the Garland - it was crowded occasionally, but the vibe there was wonderful and I loved doing the shows there and met so many lovely folks. And yes, it was cheap back then. I remember doing the show the first time Steve Reeves did it, and set the record for how much money anyone had made in one day. Thirty bucks is cheap today - some people charge fifty, seventy-five - it's just turned into something it was never meant to be. That all began when they started getting people like Val Kilmer - he made 150K in one day, but it was the end of innocence for those shows.
Yes, that's what happened!Hey Neil, a while back someone mentioned that they knew someone with the entire run of My Little Margie uncut on tape in good quality . I can' t remember if it was you. In any case, there's a chance those episodes wound up with Nostalgia Family .
MLM falls into that in-between category. Technically not PD, although its been treated that way for decades. The category is "orphaned show". That's a show which is under copyright but there are no living people or heirs who are around to claim ownership. So, for all intents and purposes, those shows are PD. Another show in that category would be I Married Joan.I always thought that Nostalgia family , (and Nostalgia Merchant) were companies that deal in Public Domain releases .
Someone mentioned that with My Little Margie and other Roland Reed programs ownership is vague . Reed (and his only heir, his wife) are long deceased . Other RR shows include Waterfront, Rocky Jones Space Ranger, Beulah, and The Trouble with Father , all nostalgic fun shows from the early 1950s .
On Decades they are cut. The DVDs are complete.Never mind, I found it. It's the same episodes that were shown on Decades, which I figured was probably going to be the case. If they were different episodes I would have bought it.
I'll be buying all the my Little Margie sets Nostalgia Family releases - ditto One Happy Family , Mack And Myer , Everglades etc. I'm glad someone is releasing this stuff. I only wish they had a web site , so I could check on future releases .Yes, that's what happened!
I second that. The episodes I've watched look great, and sign me up for Season Two. Hope they release other classic sitcoms in the future, even with that pesky RE-TV logo. God, maybe even "Bachelor Father".I received this set a few weeks ago. They are DVD-R (not pressed). 13 Episodes across 2 discs. Cheap packaging. The episode quality is surprisingly good. Each episode runs 26 minutes plus some change. The "RE-TV" logo appears at the end of each episode which implies these are from the same source that Decades Channel and RTV channel use, although those channels cut some footage for time. I would be thrilled to have the rest of the series released in this quality.
