"PD purveyor TGG DIRECT offers reliable DVD transfers of unrestored films at bargain prices. Some extras are included but what's NOT here are any annoying on-screen company watermarks.
TRIVIANA for "TV's Lost Episodes: Action Collector's Edition"--
The horse portraying "Fury" was Highland Dale.
These still highly regarded programs were directed by Blake Edwards, John Meredyth Lucas and others.

Herschel Bernardi, a PETER GUNN regular, was the original voice of Chicken of the Sea's spokesfish, Charlie the Tuna.
John Phillips, leader of and songwriter for The Mamas & Papas, has a small role in the FURY chapter, "Joey's Father."
