The sixth and final season of "Hogan's Heroes" has now been announced for DVD release in June. In this last season, Ivan Dixon had left the show and was replaced with no explanation by Kenneth Washington as Sergeant Baker.

Perhaps Eric or some other knowledgable poster here could tell me if Cimarron Strip has ever been released on DVD?

It starred Stuart Whitman as Marshall Crown and had a very memorable theme by Maurice Jarre.

I only ever saw this as a kid, I think it showed here in the U.K. in around 1970?

Not familiar with that show actually, but I would say it hasn't been released. Which studio produced it?

I believe your right that it's never been released, I can't find anything on the net.

The show ran from sep 1967 - 68 on CBS.

Well according to imdb it was produced by the "Stuart Whitman Production Company" so that raises an iffy question of whether those rights are now under a big studio's control (in which case you can forget ever seeing it get released) or whether Whitman (he's still alive, right?) still owns them, in which case an independent label might be willing to give it a shot, but then you'd have the question of where the master copies are, because even shows from the 60s that weren't syndicated afterwards can end up becoming "lost."

I just pre-ordered the First Seasons of both IRONSIDE and MCHALE'S NAVY.

Or Shout, since they are the distributors of those two shows. smile

I'm glad that Shout! has picked up two Universal series that Universal wasn't going to release, but if Shout! would now just pick up Season 2 and on releases of titles Universal gave up on (Night Gallery, Dragnet, Adam-12) I will have taken a quantum leap forward to reaching TV on DVD nirvana!

Burns and Allen WAS a funny show. George Burn's McCadden Productions produced it as well as "Love That Bob" that in terms of storyline existed in the Burns and Allen show universe. He and Gracie appeared on the show a few times as well as Bea Benedaret as their neighbor Blanche. Burns saw what Lucy and Desi had cooking with Desilu and wanted in on that end of tv production as well, just as Danny Thomas and Sheldon Leonard did.

I've always been a Jack Benny man myself!!!

Benny was better, but Burns And Allen were a solid #2 overall. smile

Unfortunately releasing the Benny show on DVD presents even worse complications because the show never had a consistent format and would vary week to week with live shows or filmed shows. Universal owns the rights to the filmed shows which aired in syndication for years (one 1956 show filmed in London that centers on Jack visiting Rome has Sean Connery in one of his earliest acting jobs playing an Italian cab driver with one of the WORST accents you'll ever hear. It is very incongruous to see Benny and Connery on-screen together).

And let's not forget Benny's classic show with guest star Dimitri Tiomkin where jack dusts off his old tune from radio days:

"When you say I beg your pardon, then I'll come back to yoooooooo...."

WHENCE!?!?!

Starz in the U.S. are currently screening the series.

If any show has dated, it'll be this one! I was almost 13 year old when it started and almost 18 when it ended. I don't know who'll buy it! It's pure 70's...

There's one episode of L:AS I remember with Adam West, but I wouldn't buy the entire season for one episode. I think the Rockford Files is out. Haven't checked on it. The reason I mention it is because of Stuart Margolin. He played a hell of a part as Angel in Rockford.

as ye know, a favorite thread, so I'll bump it in expecation of new, interesting releases.

Absolutely...heaven forbid anyone start a "new" thread on a "new" vintage series release.

The Thor Police would be all over them.

FINALLY, Universal goes back and resurrects one of its many "one and done" titles with a pending Season 2 release of "Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries." I suspect that the recent Disney release of the 1950s Hardy Boys episodes may have played a small role in this.

Here's hoping future "one and done" titles make their way back into the Universal pipeline (Dragnet and Adam-12 PLEASE!!!!!)

Well some good news potentially on another Universal "one and done" title from two years ago, as Digital Bits says a second volume of "Baa Baa Black Sheep" will be out in July. This would actually represent the rest of Season 1.

Quite true, but there is a guest appearance by Melinda Naud who along with Jamie Lee Curtis made that year's TV version of "Operation Petticoat" enjoyable. smile

(Sorry posts 1997 and 2003 in the baseball thread got taken up before you could get in a word)
