GREEN PEACOCK (1958) Howard Duff, Ramon Navarro

Too bad this 1958 unsold pilot didn't sell, it's got a pretty good cast: Howard Duff, Ramon Navarro, Mari Blanchard, Peter Whitney, it's written and co-produced by William Spier, who was a top radio director (he did many of the best episodes of SUSPENSE) and it's also co-produced by Howard Duff and ...

Re: Educational Television Syndication Inquiry.

Not everything went up in the Little Ferry Fire, partially because not everything was housed there. Maurice Zoary's master materials came from a variety of sources: prints, fine grains, lavenders and some negatives that survived. That's why the Zoary materials are all over the place in terms of qual...

Nitrateville Correction" Photo ID

THE LAST THING AT NIGHT (1958) Howard Morris

An unsold pilot starring Howard Morris and co-created and produced by another YOUR SHOW OF SHOWS alum Lucille Kallen, it's a Walter MItty-ish concept for what could have been a great showcase for Morris but alas, was not picked up by a network: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ZOEkVnXeMs RICHARD M R...
