By BERT RESNIK TV ·nJ Jlidn U\\of v -"^:fiSEr3^ EDGAR B U C H A N A N plays Western judge with an wld sense of justice on the "Barbara Stanwyck" show Monday. "Nothing thanks! I just dropped in to see why my husband f i n d b your TV so much better than ours!" . % . . *i Excellent Service and Repairs J ' All Repairs Fully Guaranleed ', - HE 7-89B2 fe E. Nothing is quite so refreshing as opening somebody else's mail. So while the regular proprietor of this column is off upon a much-deserved trip around the world, we have been slitting his envelope flaps like mad, like mad. * * * IT HAS BEEN rewarding. We learned, for example, that an expedition is off to Greece (we think) to find the arms of Venus de Milo (if she ever had any). This jolly bit came from the proprietors of "Monitor," a sort of catch-all radio program. It has nothing to do with television. But then, neither do we. WE HAD HOPED, somehow, that the busy television stations would have kept Bert posted as to the endings of their various vintage movies. In our time we have seen the first half of more movies, we- believe, than the average popcorn saleslady at the Bijou. But the busy stations do not tell. We can only tell you that Louis Jourdan and Joan Fontaine, for example, will have a jolly time come July 9, 11:30 p.m., on "Decameron Nights" over channel four. .They will flee Italy following the sacking of Florence. Following the sacking, Jouldan will attempt to bag Fontaine. KRCA describes the plot no more, and since we know we will be asleep by 12:30 that night, we'll never know, either. Mayhap it's just as well. t t t WE HAVE been hoping that an entire early-evening show writ be devoted to re-runs of the last halves of the late shows. In fact, a fine five-minute program could be made of the last moments of "To Have and to Have Not." Miss Bacall's wiggle will never be vintage. X- * * WE HAVE also learned, from reading Mr. Resnik's mail, that he has a lady fan who disapproves of the pictures he uses to illustrate the television section he edits. All of these pictures, she Wivils. are of beautiful ladies in various stages of undress. WE CANNOT fan!I Mr. Rr-snik on this count. The old movies t h a t appear on our television screen were made, apparently, for some ridiculous purpose like being shown in a motion pictuie house. They do no! fit our screen. Consequently the heads and lower extremities of the ladies are cut off. This leaves the emphasis you-know-where. We don't want you to t h i n k that we believe television is a total bust. The heads of the men, too, are lopped off.--G.C.F. KHJ-TV 9 Television Movie Tips HONDO--Sunday, 7:30 p.m., channel 9 (COLOR). John Wayne, Geraldine Page, James Arness, Michael Pate (1954).
