Operation Intercept Screening

On Thursday, March 12, 2009 The National Aviation Hall of Fame (NAHF) will be starting their annual 4 day aviation film festival ReelStuff Film Festival in Dayton Ohio, which will be featuring a whole bunch of classic films being presented by an impressive array of personalities...from their ReelStuff Press Release

"...Among Reel Stuff’s presenters are Cliff Robertson and Clay Lacy/The Pilot, Catherine Wyler/Memphis Belle, Nikolai Mullerschoen/The Red Baron, and Steve Hinton/Always. Robertson, who both starred and directed The Pilot, is an Academy Award-winning actor, pilot and 2006 enshrinee of the National Aviation Hall of Fame. Aerial cinematographer Clay Lacy and aerial coordinator Steve Hinton, both also pilots, are each nominees for enshrinement into the Hall of Fame.

Additional Reel Stuff Film Festival presenters and projects include Jeffrey Roth/The Wonder of it All, Paul Glenshaw/Barnstorming, John Ellis/Steve Canyon, Richard Hoerle/Captain Eddie, James Farmer/Twelve O’clock High and Strategic Air Command, Cliff & Cathy Fleming/We Were Soldiers, and Rocco DeVilliers/The Fly Boys.

Among our original film screenings in Dayton’s historic Victoria Theater is the Cold War classic, Strategic Air Command, starring Jimmy Stewart, who happens to also be a true-life aviation hero and one of our incoming Hall of Fame enshrinees this July,” explained Kaplan.

Catherine Wyler, daughter of Oscar-winning director, William Wyler, will screen both the 1944 documentary of her late father’s, the Memphis Belle, and the 1990 Warner Brothers action-drama of the same name, which she co-produced."


(NOTE that our very own James Farmer, who provides expert commentary on many episodes in our Steve Canyon DVD series, will be there presenting the WWII aviation epic Twelve O'clock High!)

"They look like snowmen!"...Scene from the Steve Canyon episode OPERATION INTERCEPT, arguably the most memorable show of the series (which will be included in Volume 3 DVD later this year) but will be shown at ReelStuff on March 12th.
You can get more info at "ReelStuff". including a movie clip from the episode.


Of special interest to Steve Canyon fans will be the rare public screening of OPERATION INTERCEPT at 7:30pm Thursday March 12th. The 28th episode filmed, this wildly popular episode will be screened (digitally projected) in the Engineers Club Theatre of Dayton (one of Milton Caniff's old haunts) and will be preceded by a reception (from 6:00pm to 7:30) and discussion/Q&A with me, John Ellis, Restoration Producer for Steve Canyon.

Admission to this presentation and screening (and all individual screenings) is $10.00, admission to the reception will be separate and is at this writing To Be Determined. Further information on tickets to all screenings and the special reception etc. is available at their website.

It is interesting to note that this episode premiered originally on NBC on Tuesday March 31, 1959, almost 50 years to the day of this rare public screening. Don't miss it!
