THE SWARM II: THE REVENGE (1981)
-In this sequel to Irwin Allen's underappreciated disaster epic, the bees are back! And this time, it's PERSONAL as they seem to follow Helena Anderson (Katharine Ross) wherever she goes, killing her only living relatives and disrupting her romance with Bradford Crane (Michael Caine) who must think of a new way to destroy them.

Hmm, I think someone found this script and used it a few years later in another franchise.....smile

FERBERGER'S PEOPLE (1973) (Pilot, 3 episodes, CBS)

Angie Dickinson as Leslie Ferberger, a detective operating out of a used record shop, seemed like great casting at the time, but was undone by a weak supporting cast of 'colorful' characters. Wolfman Jack as "Vampire Sam" is a sad comic relief (the death of his whole family at the hands of the Manson family was certainly topical, but bringing it up in every scene he's in as a running gag just doesn't work), while Steve Brodie makes a pathetic "Shoeshine Flygood," a hooker-slapping pimp always dressed in purple velvet. James Doohan as Father Martinez, Esther Rolle as Sgt. Mankiewicz, Shelly Duvall as Mathilda the Flirtatious Bull Dyke.

DOTTY RULES THE ROOST (1957)
This sequel led to a sitcom spin-off for Castiglione's nurse, Dot. Viewers are taken on a wild ride through persistant ringing phones (pre answering-machine), patients sneaking into the back door without an appointment (but plenty of orafices and skin oozing God-knows-what), Dot demanding "change" from Doc Castiglione (remember when an office visit was $5 cash?), and the expressions on waiting patients as Dotty loudly rambles on and on about the personal afflictions of those who just left examining rooms (no intercoms in the 50's either). Eve Arden, Ray Bolger, Phil Silvers, Tom Poston, and special appearance by Broderick Crawford.
