The only Dorothy Janis picture I've seen is The Pagan. But that one was a pip. Lots o' violence and racism in the sunny South Pacific. Nice photography though, so there's that…

Rex! Your show is the damn best. My favorite way to kick off the weekend.

...caught the hitchcock presents episode the other night where your "let's go...okay let's get the show on the road" drop-in came from. Noticed some time editing you did to close the gap between the two lines. I fell asleep before the ego jd got his reward twist...confounded!

Plenty of good R&B today. Thanks, Rex.

The company considered dropping dynamite on the wreck to dislodge bodies which would float to the surface, but finally gave up after oceanographers suggested that the extreme pressure would have compressed the bodies into gelatinous lumps.

Great show Rex, which song was the Gerry Mulligan goofing off? we never saw that side of him from our part of the family :)

Drs. William B. Ryan of Columbia University and Fred Spiess of Scripps Institution of Oceanography in California joined the expedition as consultants.

 They nearly stayed ashore when Grimm introduced them to a new consultant – a monkey called Titan, which was trained to point at a spot on the map to supposedly indicate where Titanic was.

The scientists issued an ultimatum: "It's either us or the monkey."

Grimm preferred the monkey, but was prevailed upon to leave it behind and bring the scientists instead.
