2014  UPDATES

Welcome to the 84th issue of Serial World (including those combined issues with Favorite Westerns). I decided to put together a special and hopefully complete listing of serials currently available on DVD. They may be ordered through our fan club or you can order them direct from the publishers.. As you will notice, most of the serials on our list have multiple sources. I am told that is because a all serials are in the public domain and DVDs of them are published by anyone because you cannot copyright something in the public domain.  We can't promise which source will be a supplier of a certain title we obtain for you because during the 40+ years I have run this fan club many, many sources of serial videos have gone out of business and many new ones have emerged. Some of the sources listed may no longer be in business while others have discontinued certain titles. What I pledge to do is send you what is in my opinion the best video currently available of a title

In recent years I have often plugged Eric Stedman, doing business as The Serial Squadron, as the best quality source of of DVDs of some serial titles. Eric joined our club for a time starting in 1995 and ordered numerous items through our club. When he started publishing serial DVDs a few years later we were happy to sell them through our fan club at terms he set. There is one major problem. Although Eric promises 30 day order fulfilment in his advertisements, he often takes much longer. The worst example: we sent him a check and order for copies of .The Lone Ranger and Adventures of Tarzan on June 1st of 2013 and now over a year later we are still waiting for that order to be filled. We have written and e-mailed him several times about this order and received no reply. We have been able to find other sources from his titles – for example he sells his products through other sources like Hermitage Hill Media and Movies Unlimited and we have sometimes ordered his titles through them when he is slow filling our orders and thus have been able to fill any orders we get more quickly that we would if we waited for him to send us our orders.

This leads us to another problem we have had with the product he sends us. We most recently ordered copies of The Lone Ranger serial from Movies Unlimited because Eric was not filling our order. The disc we received from MU was labeled as coming from Eric Stedman while the same discs that Eric supplies us with of the title have no label on them.

While Eric puts a label on discs he supplies MU, the discs he sends us have no label on them which leads to another problem. He is not always careful about what he puts in a DVD case. For example, we ordered two copies of King of the Mounties. Disc Two was fine, but disc one contained part one of The Fighting Marines serial. We eventually solved that problem by ordering two copies of The Fighting Marines serial from Eric and having him fill them with Part One of King of the Mounties and part two of The Fighting Marines which we then switched around so we had the right discs in the right case. We started a new policy of checking the discs we received from Eric (and others) without any label on the discs to make sure they are what the package says they are. Then we ourselves put labels on the unlabeled discs we receive from Eric and others. We try to check and correctly label anything you order from us, but we are not perfect ourselves so please notify us of any errors we make and we will try to correct them promptly.

Eric is not the only source that is sometimes slow filling orders, but wanted you club members to have a sample of what we deal with. When we have to ship an order in more than one package because an item is on back order to us, we only charge shipping on the first package. Of course there is no shipping charge at all on U.S.A. orders that total over $100. (On all foreign orders we charge actual postage charges because of much higher foreign postal charges).

To close I would also remind all of you that we do not have unlimited stock of all titles we list. We attempt to fill all orders we receive within 30 days but sometimes some things take longer. For example: DVD-R Warner Brothers Archive titles are manufactured on demand when ordered and take us a few days to get them from Warner Brothers distributor. Many other sources now supply DVD-R titles on demand, We also list titles when they are announced rather then waiting until they are actually released.

Hope I have explained this all adequately. Thank you for your continued support of our fan club.

FAVORITE WESTERNS BOOK REVIEW

by Norman H. Kietzer

Doc Holliday in Film and Literature by Shirley Ayn Linder is without a doubt the most comprehensive book ever written on the books and movies in which Doc Holliday or a character based on him but having another name appears. Also a character who uses the Doc Holliday name but has little or no resemblance to the actual man. The filmography includes over twenty films with listings of the stars, synopsis, and often whether it is available on video through the chronological chapters. Also at least twenty television appearances of Holliday are covered Many, many books and magazine articles are also covered. The book is extensively footnoted

As Paul A, Hutton notes in the Foreword, Shirley Linder has been researching Holliday for years and “she turned her interest into a well-crafted master's thesis at the University of New Mexico.” In my opinion this is the most complete and accurate study of Doc Holliday ever written. It could well have been accurately called “The Life and Legend of Doc Holliday” much more accurately than the television program on his friend Wyatt.

It is probably the most perfect example of this type of research that you will ever find on a person who makes a vast number of appearances in fact and fiction. As Favorite Westerns fan club members are primarily interested in western film and television, this is a excellent resource guide.

Like most resource books, this one is not perfect but comes as close to perfection as any book of this type that I have ever seen. I found only one error in the entire book. On page 122 Shirley Linder writes, “The Eighties marked the end for TV serial westerns, however, only three remaining from 1959's thirty-two: The Young Maverick, The Chisholms, and Bret Maverick. None featured a John H.. Holliday”

She is correct about the first two , but the Bret Maverick program, which starred James Garner and Ed Bruce, had John McLiam appearing as the fictional Doc Holliday in two 1981 programs. I can't locate a video of these programs but if my memory of over thirty years ago when I saw them is accurate, Doc was involved in a poker game with Bret Maverick and others.

I have spent much more time on the one error than it is worth. I will conclude by saying that I really enjoyed the book as I believe any fan of western movies and television programs will. It was published in January by McFarland and costs $40.00. It is available as a 200 page softcover from the publisher (www.mcfarlandpub.com). Their order line is 800-253-2187

McFarland titles are also available from all major ebook providers, including consumer/retail suppliers like Google Play and Amazon Kindle, and library suppliers like Overdrive and ebrary. For a complete list of ebook providers, see www.mcfarlandpub.com/customers/ebooks

-----------------------------



We do not attempt to publish a comprehensive listing of everything available from our fan club in each issue. Most of the items listed in past issues are still available. If you are interested in buying things from past issues, we will send you copies of all the issues for the past fifteen years at no charge – just send us your request for this packet.

Many Public Domain Movies are published on DVD by more than one company. Unless you specifically say you want a DVD from one company only, we will send you what we think is the best currently available as some firms discontinue titles that other firms continue to or start to make.

We do NOT stock everything we list. What we attempt to do is list everything that is available but our stock is limited and if you choose to order through our fan club be aware that on average we take around two weeks to assemble and obtain everything you order – sometimes longer.

In the past we attempted to stock all vhs tapes of westerns and serials, and when DVDs replaced vhs tapes as the primary video media we were left with thousands of vhs tapes which we still have. Titles we have in stock are still available – the price is now $3 each or ten for $25. We do NOT publish a listing of available vhs tapes. If you are interested send or e-mail us your want list and we will let you know which vhs titles on your list are still available.

Thank you all for your continued support of our fan club.

CAMPFIRE COMMENTS

by Norman H. Kietzer

John Fullerton of the Sons of the Pioneers Museum in Branson, Missouri, is trying to locate a DVD or vhs video of the pilot of a TV show from 1963 called "30 Minutes At Gunsight." It starred Marty Robbins and was directed by Russell Hayden. The Sons of the Pioneers (Lloyd Perryman, Dale Warren, Pat Brady, Rusty Richards, and Roy Lanham) were wranglers in this program and did some musical numbers. I'd really like to view this myself.

Will the person who ordered The Rounders television series DVD set please contact me as I cannot find the order that was here. There is a problem with that set so do not order it as I have yet to get it straightened out and find a good source of that title.

We have not been able to fill orders for DVDs of Law of the Northwest because we have not received our stock. I still have Law of the Northwest on back order from Loving The Classics – the company that told us in January that they had that movie available on DVD. They charged our Pay Pal account for it when we ordered it but we have never received it although the Loving The Classics Companty has told us several times they would be sending it shortly.

Right now we are not able to find the title listed from any other company. I might add that Loving The Classics has supplied us promptly with other titles we have ordered from them.

As we have written many times in our fan club magazine, we do NOT stock all of the titles we list in our club magazine. The purpose of our club is to let members know what titles are available on DVD from various sources. You can order directly from those many sources or order through our club in which case we will obtain and send the DVDs to you. In cases where we have to make multiple shipments because some titles are out of stock here, we will charge postage on only the first shipment. (Note there is no postage charge on USA orders of over $100)

Usually we can fill orders promptly but sometimes it can take longer. For example, seven years ago an outfit called Cliffhanger Productions told us they could supply us with copies of a DVD of a 2001 serial called King of the Park Rangers so we listed it in our club magazine and ordered copies from them. The copies never arrived but this year we finally found copies available from another source. Just wanted to show an example of what sometimes happens.

We will continue to try to keep our fan club members informed of what serial and western titles are available on DVD, and if they wish we will obtain tose titles for them by the prices listed. Thank you for your continued support of our fan club.

CAMPFIRE COMMENTS

On 09/08/2014 I received an e-mail that said, “ Please cancel all furthur newsletters addressed to Jim Stringham. He is deceased.” Jim has been one of the major contributors to our Serial World magazines the 1970's up until most recently in Serial World #84 earlier this year. I will truly miss his help and advice over the years. Since I published the first issue of Serial World in 1974 so many of the people active in our fan club have died. Each time I mail out an issue I get some back from the post office marked deceased, and I also get e-mails like the one above. I've had to cut down the size and scope of Westerns & Serials in recent years because we have lost so many members, but I will continue to provide fan club members with listings of DVDs, CDs, and Books related to serials and westerns that are available.

I also want to stress that we have moved. We are still in Mankato but our new address is: 612 Adams Street, Mankato, Minnesota 56001-4229

On 10/17/2014 04:21 PM, Charles DeWitt wrote: > Dear Norman & Patricia Kietzer, I hope this question isn't annoying, but I'm trying to locate the source of this memory. This was shown on TV in the United States pre-1970, and might have been from either a movie or a TV western. There are United States troopers in a ?cave?, and the atmosphere is tense. At some point a trooper has large knives and is using them to work his way either up or down what seems to be a perhaps 12 feet across natural well between levels in the cave. I remember his body was not vertical, but horizontal with his feet braced against the wall of the cave. His body is up against the wall, so he isn't blocking the well. While he is doing this a Native American decides for some reason to jump in prone position down the well from a higher level. So he goes unexpectedly screaming and flying by the trooper. If anyone can help Charles please e-mail him at chrls_dwtt@yahoo.com or send us the information and we will forward it to him.

In this column in the past I have complained about the service I sometimes received from Eric Stedman who does busines as the Serial Squadron. Therefor, I should also mention when he does fulfill an order. I sent him two hundred dollars through pay pal on October 13th for an order I placed that day and I received the entire order on December 8th.
