Don Mankowski replied to Emerkeith Davyjack's discussion "'Cause they taped it on only one day..." - NBC's The Sound of Music
"No, only part of it, but I did record it, and may watch it yet. What I did see was suitably outrageous. (Rather strange use for a "live" production, but indicative of our attempts to keep up with the technology!)"

Don Mankowski replied to Mr. Satanism's discussion On what Bronze Age Earth was Batman dead?
"I had to check it, but Adventure Comics #462 ("April 1979"), in its Justice Society feature, has "The Death of Batman." It's the Earth-2 Batman, complete with old uniform (no yellow bulls-eye). That's the one I…"

Don Mankowski replied to John DeRubbo's discussion Shows You Were Forced To Watch When You Were a Kid
"My parents ran a grocery store, so as kids, my brother and I spent a lot of time at one grandma's house or the other's. Fortunately, each place had an older, black-and-white TV set on the back porch or in the basement. So, while grandma…"

Don Mankowski replied to Mark S. Ogilvie's discussion TCM is showing Mask of Fu Manchu tomorrow
"I don't know if Fu was ever lost, but for some time it was available only in a bowdlerized cut, with the racial slurs in both directions trimmed out. TNT used to run the "PC" version in those days before TCM existed."

Don Mankowski replied to Mark S. Ogilvie's discussion How much did the loss of the adds hurt comics?

"Readers used to write in "Can't you just put all the ads in the back of the book so they don't break up the stories?" And the editors had to nicely explain that advertising doesn't work that way, and that these businesses…"

Don Mankowski replied to Mark S. Ogilvie's discussion Things no one says anymore
"Lately they've been playing a clip of Vice President Biden saying "that's a lot of malarkey!" Don't recall if it's recent, but whenever, it sounds pretty quaint. (Once long ago, President Reagan said he'd had it…"

Don Mankowski replied to PowerBook Pete, the Mad Mod's discussion Anything, Everything, or Nothing At All
"I remember seeing that on the Sunday funny pages. Wasn't it just slipped right into the end of the Dick Tracy strip, taking up part of its alotted space, for a time? It seemed that artists could get away with that back then."

Don Mankowski replied to The Baron's discussion "Captain", Why?
"Then again, "captain" has uses outside the military. You can be captain of a sporting team or a project as well as of a non-military airplane or boat. If someone is a major or a colonel, you'd be looking for a military association,…"
