Did you know that Kirkwood Smith (Clarence Boddicker) actually married Joan Prirkle (Barbara) who played Dick Jones' secretary? They met on the set and he was all hers once he said "I'm sure he can fit me in." then put his gum on her nameplate.
Why can't newer generations see the originals?
EDIT - And being introduced to garbage like the Teenage Ninja Turtles is not a good thing.
I agree, its not like some of these movies are from the 50's. Most are available on BluRay and in High Def. Its just a money grab IMO by Hollywood studios that don't want to take a chance on being saddled with the next John Carter film.
