THE GALE STORM SHOW (1958) with Boris Karloff

Unfortunately its colorized, which really sucks, but here's an episode of THE GALR STORM SHOW from 1958 which gives you not only a late look st the Hal Roach Studios, but has Boris Karloff as guest playing dual roles and advertising THE VEIL, his own series then being shot at the Roach Studios: http...

Peter Bogdanovich RIP

Frankly, he was a bit of an asshole, but he directed several great films, got a lot of attention for some old directors, and spent years getting Orson Welles' THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WIND completed, so here's to him. https://www.nytimes.com/2022/01/06/movies/peter-bogdanovich-dead.html RICHARD M ROBERTS

LOVE AMERICAN STYLE: LOVE AND THE HUSTLER (1969)

I can't believe I'm putting up a segment of LOVE AMERICAN STYLE, a show I took pains to avoid when it was new,when it was in rerun, and every day ever since, but here's a segment featuring Mantan Moreland, Eddie Rochester Anderson, Flip Wilson, and sexy-voiced and future MANNIX secretary Gail Fisher...

Re: Betty White RIP

And speaking of Betty White and Buster Keaton, Leonard Maltin was wise and lucky enough to ask Betty about Buster:
