Behind the Scenes of Friday the 13th: The Series

by Alyse Wax
 
              

“Lewis Vendredi made a deal with the devil to sell cursed antiques, but he broke the pact, and it cost him his soul. His niece, Micki, and her cousin, Ryan, inherited the store, and with it, the curse. Now they must get everything back—and the real terror begins.”

So opens Friday the 13th: The Series. In the first-ever examination of the TV series, author Alyse Wax delves into the series episode-by-episode, with more than sixty exclusive interviews with the cast, writers, directors, and producers, as well as nearly fifty never published behind-the-scenes photos from the cast and crew’s personal collections.

Interviews include series creator Frank Mancuso Jr.; series stars Louise Robey, John LeMay, and Steve Monarque; notable guest stars including Elias Zarou, Kate Trotter, Wayne Best, Barclay Hope, Angelo Rizacos, Monika Schnarre, and Ingrid Veninger; directors and production crew including Jim Henshaw, Marc Scott Zicree, Tim Bond, William Taub, Francis Delia, Armand Mastroianni, Rob Hedden, Tom McLoughlin, and Atom Egoyan.

Dick Jones Where the Action Was

By Ann Snuggs
 
              
 
Dick Jones wasn't known for horror films, but he was a former child actor and the voice of Pinocchio in Walt Disney’s Pinocchio (1940), which, some people say had it's scary moments. Dick's long and fascinating career began much earlier.

Early film roles included Little Men (1934), A Man to Remember (1938), several of Hal Roach's Our Gang (Little Rascals) shorts, Nancy Drew, Reporter (1939), and with Jimmy Stewart in Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (1939). Old Time Radio audiences also regularly heard Dick as Henry Aldrich on The Aldrich Family.

He became a household name in two early action-filled television Western shows, The Range Rider, in which he played Dick West, Range Rider’s (Jock Mahoney) teenage sidekick and saddle partner, and Buffalo Bill, Jr., in which he portrayed the title character. Dick and Jock were fine athletes and skilled at the art of performing action sequences that wowed audiences.

Through Dick’s recollections and commentary by the author, discover the series, the stars, the supporting players, staged fights that took hours of choreography, action sequences that went wrong, and Dick’s personal appearances at rodeos with Jock Mahoney. Experience the action when they performed on camera and on the road. Includes an alphabetical Index of Episodes, a general Index, two Appendices, a and discussion of sources. Illustrated with 51 photos.

MGM British Studios:
Hollywood in Borehamwood

By Derek Pykett
 
                
British classic horror films still make people's hair stand on end. England’s biggest film studio based in Borehamwood, Hertfordshire, England, between 1948-1970, played host to some of the biggest names in Hollywood’s history, and over 150 classic movies from the golden age of cinema were produced on its sound stages.
From Under Capricorn (1949) directed by Alfred Hitchcock; to Mogambo (1953) Starring Clark Gable, Ava Gardner and Grace Kelly; from Where Eagles Dare (1968) starring Richard Burton and Clint Eastwood; to 2001 A Space Odyssey (1968) directed by Stanley Kubrick; this book tells the story of their making, from behind the scenes.
Featuring many never before seen photographs, and hundreds of memories from those who worked at MGM British, both in-front of, and behind the camera, this is a nostalgic trip through an important era in British film studio history.
