"Hayde's narrative... follows the ebb and flow of the "Dragnet" show from radio to television, detailing every awkward moment and production feature that refined the drama throughout the 1950s. From the beginning, Webb had an idea of what the show should be, but it was an evolving idea, a refinement that My Name's Friday chronicles as the show matured from radio to television.
"Hayde goes beyond 'just the facts' to offer readers a comprehensive look at the show that defined an entire genre. Harry Morgan... offers a foreword and a tribute to the man audiences knew best as Joe Friday. Also included are program guides of the radio and television episodes, a collection of Friday's most well-known speeches, and a glossary of police terms used in the series.
"Michael Hayde is an experienced writer in the field of entertainment history whose work has appeared in such periodicals as Filmfax and Remember and the "Superman" fanzine The Adventures Continue. He has appeared on NBC's Unsolved Mysteries for the episode on the death of George Reeves, who played Superman on the original television series."
<< What a heartbreak. After faithfully watching The Real McCoys on TNN everyday at noon (I actually tape it and watch it at night), I come home last night and find it is no longer on TNN. I went to the web site and they dont even show TRM as one of their shows!!! The Real McCoys is a great source for rare shots of 40 acres.
TNN was into the sixth and final season (1962-63) where Kathy
Nolan had left the show, and this Friday was to be the first
to feature Butch Patrick as a semi-regular. I was really wanting
to have it shift back to the first and second seasons (1957-1959)
again so that I could scrutinize every frame and
<< Knowing your fondness for minutia, I thought you
might appreciate this. A close viewing of a scene from "Divide
and Conquer" (one of my faves) has Everett Glass, "Professor
Lucerne", telling Superman that, "If you do separate
into two, then each of you will be only half as strong, and only
half as powerful!" Well, its pretty obvious from his posture
and glasses, to me at least, that Glass is reading from a script.
If you listen very closely, you'll hear the rustle as a page
of the script is turned! Or maybe
<<Late this morning (December 9, 2000) I checked my e-mail and found your message regarding TV Land. At this moment, I am watching Human Bomb, B..O..M..B. This episode has been edited quite a bit from previous runs. However, I am writing regarding an observation. The circular table adorned with round studs that Bet-a-Million Butler and his colleague are sitting around having drinks at the Metropolis Club appears to be the same table in the Planet office on which the tape recorder ("No comment until the time limit is up.") sits. It must have been easier to move the table from one room to another than get a different table. I haven't confirmed this be video tape but at first glance they appear the same. >>
