Preposterous 1939 Republic quickie gets points for being inspired by Welles' "War of the World'' broadcast; TV reporter hero Ralph Byrd 3 months after regularly scheduled broadcasts began; cleverly repurposed footage from DELUGE (1932); & George Barbier as a video ventriloquist.

Still a story without an ending...until Ronan takes down his own Darth Vader.

Thursday 11/21/57: Edgar G. Ulmer's wonderfully creepy THE BLACK CAT (Universal, 1934) makes its NY TV debut on WABC's "Night Show'' at 11:15 p.m. Repeated through Saturday, when it began at 10:30 p.m. because the network signed off early (as NBC was still doing on Sundays).

11/21/67 on WCBS' "The Late Show.'' I was sure Aunt Rose took me to see this charming 1956 comedy at Radio City Music Hall, but it actually opened at the Victoria. Holliday and Douglas, who co-starred in "Born Yesterday'' on Broadway, have wonderful chemistry.

11/21/77: MISSION TO MOSCOW (1943) makes NY TV debut on WNET's "Films of Persuasion.'' Available to TV since 1959, but apparently few takers for Michael Curtiz' pro-Soviet propaganda epic. So far have confirmed earlier broadcasts in Chicago (1963, pictured) and Philadelphia.

Sat. 11/21/87: WNET followed this with “Cinema 13” screenings of THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH (1934) and SABOTAGE (1936). Saw those on a double feature in the 70s at the old Bleecker Street Cinema, where you were lucky to make out 50 percent of the dialogue.

30 years ago tonight, the one and only Smell-O-Vision movie (from 1960) surprisingly was on MTV at 10, substantially cut to 90 minutes with commercials (couldn't hurt, in this case). And a 1959 Michael Curtiz goodie popped up on the Christian Broadcasting Network from 8 to 10.

Adrian's puffy sleeve dress from Letty Lynton ('32) sold half a million knockoffs. Meanwhile, the best gown in the picture is a showstopper with fur sleeves and I can't even find a decent picture of it.

"Garbage movie" is simply not a phrase that should appear in a good film essay. Unless, maybe, you're in middle school.

Timing, precision of frame worthy of Buster Keaton.

I deliberately left off parodies and spoofs like A NIGHT IN CASABLANCA and CARROTBLANCA.
