Cleopatra is a silent film created in 1912 by Helen Gardner and the Helen Gardner Picture Players. The film, in which Gardner stars in the title role, was based on a play written by Victorien Sardou. In a series of elaborately staged tableaux, it depicts Cleopatra (Gardner) and her love affairs, first with handsome fisherman-slave Pharon, then with Marc Antony. The film features lavish sets and costumes and at just over an hour, it was considered fairly lengthy.

From WorldCat: Blues music has its roots in the work songs, hollers, and spirituals of generations of black field hands--and blossomed into an art form in its own right during the social and economic transformations of African-American life in the early 20th century. Ma Rainey took the blues to a wider audience with traveling vaudeville shows, while Mamie Smith's recordings broke down barriers for black artists of all musical genres. With dozens of rare renditions of early blues songs, this...

There were 52 episodes of this thirty-minute adventure series featuring a San Francisco detective, Captain Bart Friday, and his sidekick, Skip Turner. Captain Friday and Skip roamed the world together seeking danger and solving mysteries. The stories told bordered on the supernatural, though there was usually a rational explanation for the superbly written terror-chillers.

Failed TV pilot from 1961 called "Daddy-O". This sitcom pilot is filled with twists! Odd, But amusing. I think the reason it wasn't picked up is because they would of run out of storylines quickly. It's Worth watching.

Dick Haymes, Lionel Stander, and Cosmo Topper himself, Roland Young, play a trio of small time hoodlums who disguise themselves as priests to escape a police dragnet.
