Re: All About Ayres: The Q & A with Lew Ayres' Biographer

You are correct about Dracula. But Universal wanted to use him in romantic melodramas (often B pictures). Doorway to Hell was done as a loan to Warner Bros, and one of his more unusual roles. I got to see that film recently on TCM and enjoyed it very much. Many years ago on AMC, I got to see two of...

Re: Welcome to Denny Miller, Our Guest Star for July 27-29!

First, thank you for participating. It's very gracious of you. I've enjoyed many of your performances and thought that you were especially effective in the episode of THE FUGITIVE that you made. Two questions if you don't mind... First - most of your contemporaries hopped a flight to Europe and made...
