    France Nuyen! She plays "the girlfriend of the fugitive" in the Chopper One episode "The Deadly Carrier." Her BF is a Chinese seaman who jumped ship and was shanghaied (heh) by a Coyote supplying illegal aliens to work on local farms - but he has typhoid! and they have to find him fast!!

    Chopper One is a Trek alumni show! In the episode "The Drop," William Windom kidnaps a rich girl (with an assist from 70s "henchman pool" actor John Quaid).

    Chopper One, "The Hijacking" used Roy Jenson (Cloud William) as a henchman abetting the theft of a gasoline truck (driven by young Nick Nolte) during the 1974 fuel shortage. We barely see him on screen long enough to recognize him, and he's shoving a sammich in his mouth at the time :lol:.

    Have Gun - Will Travel's 4th season episode "The Montebank" features Natalie Norwick ("Conscience of the King"). She plays wife to Denver Pyle's obvious caricature of General Custer (Gen George "Pawnee" Croft).
    A bit of serendipity: The plot involves a traveling puppeteer who seeks to expose the General's past murder of his wife, and at one point, quotes the "Conscience of the king" speech from Hamlet.
    Also on hand was Edward Faulker, who seemed to pop up everywhere as a guest cowboy/soldier for a while, appearing on Have Gun 13 times, The Virginian 11 times, Rawhide 7 times, Gunsmoke 5 times...

    Would 58 minutes qualify as a "full-length movie" even by 1951 standards?

    Maybe I should have said "Full-Length "Feature""
    on web ...."Released as this feature film to minimize losses if the proposed TV series did not sell, the footage was also assembled as a two-part episode of Adventures of Superman (1952), entitled "Unknown People".

    Just watched Joanne Linville and Charles Drake in the Laramie episode "The Accusers" (1961).
    Linville is sexy. Drake plays a real scoundrel.

    You really need to adjust your TV's aspect ratio, my friend.

    I'm sure you're kidding. :) But anyway, I think he's taking a handheld photo of the screen, and when you do that, there will be some dimensional distortion unless the camera lens is perfectly parallel with the screen. It's very difficult.

    Why would I kid about correct aspect ratio? And no it isn't hard at all to take a pic flat-on, and it's pretty clear his TV distorting a 4x3 image to 16x9 (you can see the edges of the screen), which just hammers a nail into my OCD. Sorry.

    The divine Arlene Martel (billed as Arline Sax?) is simply luminous (as always) as a princess of Montenegro in the old west, in the Have Gun - Will Travel ep "The Princess and the Gunfighter."

    Kudos to the DP for holding as many lingering closeups on the fair lady as possible.
