MAY 2010 ARCHIVE
CASTLES OF THE SEA
Carol Foss and D. S. Campos have created a new comic strip for Voyage to Bottom of the Sea called “Castles of the Sea “.
Dennis Hopper was an iconic actor who featured in two Irwin Allen productions early in his career, namely The Story of Mankind and Time Tunnel (uncredited role in the pilot episode). We received the sad news that he had passed away after a long illness on Saturday 29th May 2010.
POSEIDON CD SOLD OUT
We have noticed today that the limited edition (3000 copies) Poseidon Adventure CD is already sold out at La-La Land Records. A lot of them have probably been bought up by dealers planning to resell them on, so you may still find them available elsewhere. Worth comparing prices though as we’ve seen some being sold for over 3 times the original price.
LATEST ON THE NIGHT THE BRIDGE FELL DOWN DVD
We have learned that Warner Bros may remove the Night the Bridge Fell Down DVD from its catalogue due to the manufacturing fault mentioned recently. The item is no longer mentioned on the Warner Bros Store website, nor is the Irwin Allen value pack.
If you have a faulty copy of the DVD, you should contact the company you bought the DVD from and request a refund. If you bought the DVD directly from Warner Bros, we have heard from fans that their customer services department has been very helpful.
It is a great shame that there has been a problem with this particular DVD as the recent DVDs released by Warner Bros have been otherwise excellent.
CAVE IN! AIRED ON UK TELEVISION
Cave In! is to be aired in the UK for first time in over 20 years on CBS Action (Sky channel 148) on Saturday 15th May at 2pm and 6pm. It will also be repeated on 30th May, 12th June and 26th June (again at 2pm and 6pm on all of those dates).
We very much hope that other Irwin Allen television movies will also be broadcast on this new CBS Action channel.
A host of Irwin Allen stars will be appearing at the late May Mickey Sinardi’s Showstopper Stars Spectacular including June Lockhart, Shirley Jones, Lee Meriwether, Richard Anderson, Carol Lynley, Robert Colbert, Rosemary Forsyth, Don Matheson, Don Marshall, Allan Hunt, Terry Becker and more.
The event runs from Friday 28th to Sunday 30th May at the “The Proud Bird” (next to LAX), 11022 Aviation Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90045.
