Out today is The Barbara Stanwyck Show, Vol. 1 from E1 Entertainment and The Archive of American Television. The anthology series was only on the air for one season from 1960 to 1961 and produced 36 episodes. Fifteen are included in this volume; whether they’re the first fifteen or not remains to be seen. Bonus features include original, unaired pilot episode (titled “The Sponsor’s Theatre”) and Stanwyckâ€™s acceptance speech for her 1961 Emmy award.
Also out today, from Paramount Home Video, is The Fugitive: Season Three, Vol. 1, with the first 15 episodes of the 1965-1966 season. Volume 2 comes out 8th. Also from Paramount Home Video is Mannix: The Third Season, with all 25 episodes from the 1969-1970 season. No bonus features for either release that I’m aware of. As I understand it, fans of The Fugitive are anxious to see how much of the original soundtrack is intact for this release.
Warner Brothers is releasing two new collections today. Saturday Morning Cartoons: 1960s Vol. 2 contains 13 episodes from shows like Quick Draw McGraw, The Road Runner Show and The Jetsons. And Saturday Morning Cartoons: 1970s Vol. 2 includes 12 episodes from shows like Valley of the Dinosaurs, Sea Lab 2020 and New Adventures of Gilligan. Finally, Alpha Video has two new four-episode releases: Judge Roy Bean, Volume 4 and Meet Corliss Archer, Volume 4.
