This is the unedited Photo Essay that was posted at What did you watch this week in classic TV on DVD(or Blu)? December 18, 2021.


Ordinary people find themselves in extraordinarily astounding situations, which they each try to solve in a remarkable manner.

Vera Miles and Brenda Scott!?! Yowsa! Moving this one way up on my "need to watch" list...

Enjoyed the photo essays, Neal!
You must have one ENORMOUS watchlist!! As always thank you Jeff. You know what struck me most after posting both of these photo essay's today? The stark difference between the Standard Definition Route 66 prints and the High Definition (BluRay) Twilight Zone prints. If only someone had had the foresight to care for the R66 prints like CBS certainly has with the TZ. Kinda makes me both teary-eyed and furious!!

Randall I rewatched Give the Old Cat a Tender Mouse (Dec.21.1962) this morning from the 2010 Route 66 The Complete Third Season Roxbury DVD release. It is considerably better.

For anyone new to all this, here are all the prior links in this thread discussing the superior Roxbury releases and actual screen caps comparing those to the ShoutFactory! release posted by Randall.

Yes, Neal, I thought it was bad enough that a stringent Route 66 fan needed to retain all of the various Roxbury DVD releases in addition to Shout's in order to have the single best presentation of any particular episode...but then I also discovered that is also the case with Naked City, although to a much less serious degree...even though all of that companion series was released by the same label, Image/RLJ...it boggles my mind that continuity of control couldn't be maintained from the first DVD releases in 2004 of 60 one-hour episodes in multiple volumes...up to 2012 when the complete Naked City series box-set came out...with entirely different sources being used for the complete series' one-hour episodes that had been previously released...Before I determined that from the pilot one-hour episode A Death of Princes, I had naturally assumed they must have reused the very same video file for the later DVDs...but the 2004 Image DVD source was brilliantly remastered, while the 2012 transfer was from a much darker copy, slightly shorter running time, and with film source damage being repaired by an obvious tape splice! Nothing comes easy in this hobby!

If you can find the OOP Image Naked City Box-Sets 1, 2 and 3 (each with 12 episodes on 3 discs), those 36 one-hour episodes also retain the network commercial break bumpers, and a collection of original sponsor commercials. Another six single disc releases (each with 4 episodes) were also put out by Image, but although those were equally brilliant in their remastered transfers, those 24 episodes did not have bumpers.

With Route 66, we still owe a debt of gratitude to Kirk Hallam, president of Roxbury Entertainment, who first strove to release a 9 episode sampler DVD set into the marketplace in 2007...and then husbanded the first three seasons onto DVD over the next two years. (forced to take what he could get in inferior sources for many of the first dozen episodes, and then having some anonymous punk crop the second volume of season one into a 16:9 frame!)

Interesting Randall. I do indeed have the Naked City 2004 releases and I have noticed the differences you mention. If I had a damn drive I'd have posted my photo essay of Give the Old Cat a Tender Mouse from the Roxbury edition. In fact if and when I do, I'll post this episode over again.

So for anyone reading this, now you have all the ammunition you will need as to which editions to seek out. If it's the Roxbury editions you had better strike fast because they are already OOP and it's only a matter of time until they disappear from Amazon and eBay. I'll throw a wrench into all this though. The packaging of the Roxbury editions are huge and clunky. The DVD's do not fit into the sprockets in the cases and they crack easily. So be prepared to eventually have to place the discs elsewhere. In addition the discs are not labeled with episode titles. But hey I can deal with all that just for the superior quality episodes!
