An adventurer and his pretty young ward live in a house boat in Trinidad. The Bold Venture television series starred Dane Clark and Joan Marshall . "Bold Venture" was originally written as an adventure series for Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall, and was well-known as a radio serial. Much of the action in the series was actually filmed in various Caribbean locations, including Cuba, Jamaica, the Bahamas and Puerto Rico, as well as the Central American republics bordering the Caribbean. In the syndicated adventure series "Bold Venture,” Joan plays helpmate to her guardian, a sailor called Slate Shannon (Dane Clark), who runs a joint, Shannon’s Place, in Trinidad. When Joan doesn't get her guardian in trouble, she's following him about as he beats up crooks or uncovers some Caribbean Intrigue. 57 episodes were made as opposed to the radio series which produced 78 episodes. These episodes were made from original film by friend to H360, Wally Stall of Speakeasy Archives. A Ziv Television Production


Slate Shannon is hired by Aubrey Forrest, a rich man, who makes a $55,000 gamble with death. Then Slate finds the millionaire has been murdered by one of three people.

Back on September 15th of 2021 beginning here, I posted what I considered to be the 70 most watchable episodes of The Farmer's Daughter from the YouTube William Windom Tribute Site channel.

Today, HTF member @Ron Lee Green alerted us that additional episodes have recently been posted there.
Here they are. Thanks Ron!


Katy thinks she would make a good diplomat so Glen challenges her to make friends with a communist soldier visiting the US. He and Katy fight but soon he is won over by her charm and Glen gets jealous.



Katy meets an elderly man in the park who likes to feed birds. Turns out he was a respected economist under several presidents. He could help Glen with his fight against a cantankerous congressman.



Katy's cousin Helga comes with plans to be the first female congressional page. However, she soon falls in love with a young man and realizes a woman's place may really be in the home.



Glen and Katy would like a Washington wedding but Papa Holstrum wants a Minnesota wedding. Neither party want to hurt the other's feelings.



To save money, Katy agrees to do the yard work and takes a class with a self absorbed professor. MEanwhile, Glen has no trouble spending the saved money on himself. So Katy pretends she hurt her ankle. Both feel guilty about their lies.



Members of the Sioux tribe tell Glen they own St. Paul and Minneapolis due to a faulty treaty. Glen tries to talk to the chief who will not be happy unless an historical mistake is fixed. Only the president can do that.



The lines really get crossed.Katy buys a gift for her pregnant friend. Glen thinks Katy is pregnant and tells her he will get a new secretary so she can spend time at home. Katy then thinks Glen is having an affair with the new woman.



Katy want to buy Glen a piece of expensive art. To raise the money she secretly cuts expenses and holds a garage sale. Glen is unaware and his friend is convinced Katy is saving money for a divorce.

As I mentioned in The Farmer's Daughter thread, this is yet another show that deserves a proper release on commercial home video.

Just emphasizing the point and in case no one saw it in the other thread earlier. Thanks.
Hi Tim,

No need to mention that here for a couple reasons.

First, please take a look at my initial post below and reacquaint yourself with the intent of this thread.
I thought it might be fun to post your favorite obscure classic tv shows. There's hundreds, perhaps thousands of classic tv shows which have been uploaded to YouTube, Archive.org or other legitimate websites. This could also include classic tv series which have never been brought to DVD or clips about our beloved classics and actors. See Terms and Rules.

I'll start this off with, Mr. Broadway "An Eye on Emily" from September 26, 1964.
Second, it's a completely obvious statement that's probably been emphasized at least a dozen times before on this forum. Thank you!

Thanks. I appreciate your thoughts. I will try to avoid posting the same comments in multiple threads as much as possible.

This show was an irregularly scheduled hour long program that gave more complete coverage of issues. The show consisted of 'Edward R. Murrow (I)' sitting in the New York studio talking about the topic of the week. The most significant show was on 9 March 1954 during the McCarthy Era. Murrow showed a series of film clips of Senator Joseph McCarthy and revealed how shallow he was and how he lied to promote his programs. Other major shows were: 20 October 1953: "The Case Against Milo Radulovich, AO589839" that revealed how the US Air Force was trying to discharge Lieutenant Radulovich because it was suspected that his Serbian father and sister were Communist sympathizers; after the show, the Secretary of the Air Force, Harold E. Talbott, reviewed the case and Radulovich was reinstated. 24 November 1953: "Argument in Indianapolis" revealed how the local American Legion post refused to allow the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) to use their hall.


As broadcast on CBS. Stories include: Visit from Winston Churchill, Monsanto introduces "Krilium", a new chemical compound. effsabu

In 1955, CBS bought out the entire Terrytoons library and rights to their characters for $3.5 million dollars and wasted no time in recouping their investment. Almost immediately in 1955 CBS released to TV "The Mighty Mouse Playhouse" as well as "The Farmer Alfalfa Show" (both shows consisting of old cartoons with new bumpers and intros added). Then, in 1956, CBS ventured into night time cartoon programming with the introduction of the summer show 'CBS Cartoon Theatre." Dick Van Dyke (then not a famous celebrity), was the live-action host who chatted and exchanged jokes with the animated characters. A simple concept, but well enough done. This show lasted 13 weeks and presented here is show #1. Care seems to been used in picking out which cartoons to show because they are all above average and include: "Flying South" with Heckle & Jeckle (1947), "Welcome Little Stranger" with Dinky Duck (1941), "Wide Open Spaces" with Gandy Goose (1950) and "Cat Happy" with Little Roquefort (1950). For those of you that don't have time right now to watch the classic cartoons, you can watch Dick Van Dyke's segments at the very start of this show and as well as 8:28, 13:22, 19:19 and 26:01.

Happy 90th Birthday Richard Chamberlain

Dr. Kildare (1961-1967)
Stars Richard Chamberlain Raymond Massey Lee Kurty

The dramatic relationship between a young medical intern and his surgeon mentor.


Kildare is assigned to work with the highly frugal, penny-pinching veteran central supply nurse to clean out obsolete equipment. But the nurse doesn't think most of the equipment in the "Elephant's Graveyard", as the downstairs storage area is jokingly called, is obsolete.



The rivalry between Kildare and Becker intensifies when the latter attempts suicide.​



In this pilot, an older and more experienced Kildare has assumed the role of mentor after the passing of Dr. Gillespie. Kildare and his intern, Dr. Grayson have a patient needing brain surgery after a head injury. The wife tells Kildare that the patient's friend had been paralyzed after such a surgery and that he made her promise not to consent. A young nurse trainee gets emotionally involved, making her wonder if she will be effective as a nurse. When the patient revives from the morphine, Kildare convinces him to consent to surgery. The anesthesiologist informs Kildare and his intern, Dr. Grayson, that the patient's breathing is too shallow to perform the surgery. Kildare realizes that the problem may have come from inhalation exposure and tries to find out what the patient has done in the past. The patient manages to communicate that he previously worked in a factory where fluorescent light bulbs were made, and Kildare diagnoses beryllium poisoning. Meanwhile, Kildare's intern is wanting to leave Blair and take what appears to be a lucrative practice. Kildare, in an effort to keep the intern at Blair, intervenes to get another departing intern the job. The surgery is a success, with both the intern and the nurse having learned something about themselves from the experience.

Happy 90th Birthday Richard Chamberlain

What's My Line? (1950-1967)

Panelists question a baseball bats maker, a female air traffic controller and blindfolded, try to identify the week's two celebrity "mystery guests", an actor and singer, and the other, an actor, known for his strong, stage-trained voice.



Our celebrity panelist is completed STUMPED with actor and singer, Richard Chamberlain! Richard became a teen idol in the TV show, "Dr. Kildare". Did you know Chamberlain was the first to play JasonBourne in the 1988 made-for-TV movie, The Bourne Identity? Check out his memorable appearance in this 1973 What's My Line episode where daughter of Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, Lucie Arnaz, thinks he's Glen Campbell and Gene Rayburn thinks he's Burt Reynolds!

Series of unrelated short stories covering elements of crime, horror, drama, and comedy about people of different backgrounds committing murders, suicides, thefts, and other sorts of crime caused by certain motivations, perceived or not. Episodes with well known guest-stars highlighted in bold.


A very rude traveling salesman forces a truck off the road, causing a delay in emergency care for an injured young man, who dies.

Charm Time (1950)

A very old kinescope film of an early TV broadcast featuring musical performances including popular jazz guitarist Harry Volpe. The film and especially the sound was most rough, but we preserved it for archiving the best we could.​
