Special Delivery – Midnight Lace

With fall now upon us and the days getting cooler it’s nice to be able to settle in with a classic film and a hot cup of tea and this 1960’s thriller starring Doris Day and Rex Harrison certainly lives up to that scenario.

Picture yourself living on Grosvenor Square in London and returning home in a dense fog. Then from out of the fog you hear an eerie, electronic-like voice calling you by name threatening to kill you within the month, tormenting you as you run to escape!  

That’s exactly what happens to newlywed Kit Preston (Doris Day) one evening on her way home. Terrified she confides in her husband Tony (Rex Harrison) who tries to convince her that she has been the victim of a practical joker and suggests they travel to Venice for the honeymoon they never had.

Do they make it Venice for their honeymoon or has Kit been murdered by the person with the mysterious voice? Find out in Midnight Lace!

Happy Birthday Marty!

In Search of Saturday

Welcome to “In Search of Saturdays" an advertising space I’ve designed to help our members find those long lost movies, cartoons, TV shows, toys, games and anything else that we’ve all been looking for, for a very long time. 

The instructions are simple. Post your personal “looking for” list in the comments and we’ll all see if we can help you find what you’re looking for. - This will be a group effort please. 

If you can’t remember the name of a show or toy that’s alright, post what you can remember and maybe someone here will be able to tell you what it is. Also please remember that if you are listing television shows or movies please let us know if you are looking to purchase these shows or if you just want to watch them online. Then we, the members of the group, will help try to help each other and go “in search of” those items for our fellow members.

A good places to start our searches is iOffer ( which, in my opinion, is better than eBay b/c you can find lots of shows there that you can’t find anywhere else.

This is a list of the Classic Nickelodeon programs that I’m looking for to purchase. Please note that I am a private collector who does not copy and resell my collection. The videos and DVDs that I collect are for my own private viewing here in my home or my Mother’s house where I originally watched them. If you have any of these and would like to sell me copies – for my private viewing – please contact me at   Also, IF you contact me via email PLEASE PUT THE NAME OF THE SHOW IN THE SUBJECT LINE.

An Autographed Pic From MARC SUMMERS!!!

Check out what FINALLY came on Saturday!!!  Now before anyone goes bonkers asking me how I got this I emailed Mr. Summers the night of the live Double Dare event that was hosted by The Splat back in July. He gave me his assistant’s email and had me get in touch with him. The gentlemen has been very busy and was only now able to send it to me. That being said, I asked him if I was allowed to give out his email address know that all of you would want an autographed photo of your own. His response was:

“They will need to send a self-addressed large envelope to me at:

Ryan Coyne
601 Walnut St
STE 1150w Box 38
Philadelphia, PA 19106”

Keep in mind that this is an standard 8 ½ by 11 photo so the postage on your envelop must accommodate for this. Also, mine was slightly bent b/c the mailman has to put it in my mailbox, if you do not want yours bend you will have to provide cardboard or something to keep it from bending and allow for that in your SASE.

IF your photo is damaged or bent no one with the Classic Nickelodeon Fan Blog, the Bring Back Double Dare F/B page, the A New Beginning For Classic Nickelodeon yahoo email group, Mr. Summers or Mr. Coyne is responsible.
