10 Years! WOW!

The very first blog post here was on October 4th, 2006...BUT I started researching the Steve Canyon TV series (ostensibly for a magazine article) in October of 2005...so unofficially it's been 10 years that I've been on this pathway! Here is the first bit of video I put together starting in 2006:

The Copyright says 2008, but this was actually included (partially) on the Steve Canyon Special Edition DVD in July of 2007. Some of you have forgotten how long this has been in the works…here's a reminder!

###

ALL REPLACEMENT DISC #1s HAVE BEEN SHIPPED!


ALL of the defective discs (that we are aware of) have been shipped out as of yesterday! SO VERY HAPPY about finishing that. Note that ALL V3's sent out since August 8th do NOT have the faulty disc, all were reprinted/replaced by the factory and returned to me on August 8th). What a nightmare it was, but FIXED! 

###

V3+ Slipcovers and Pre-Orders Update

STILL sending out more V3+slipcover pre-orders (domestic and international)...thank you to all those that are helping with the postage. I continue to ship out the remaining 150+ pre-orders.  New orders help fund the shipping of the remaining Pre-Orders. There are 11 more Canadian and 35 International orders left to be shipped…the remaining 100 plus are domestic US. 

Note also that EVERY SINGLE PERSON that has helped with the shipping have had their Pre-Orders shipped. See the bottom of this post to find out how that works.

Repeating MOST of what I said in the last 2 posts (which is still pretty much the same BUT Important Words) for those that missed it :

I don't like to complain, but...I'm exhausted, in a lot of constant pain ...

I continue to get nasty emails from people...some coming with shipping contributions, mostly from those refusing to help but demanding I send it NOW. Well, I can't do that without the funds. 

Something you don't know is that I was only supposed to restore the shows and manage everything, but that agreement was broken almost immediately leaving me holding the bag for everything...I guess I should have walked away when that happened in 2006...but I didn't. I've done the best I can under mostly IMPOSSIBLE CIRCUMSTANCES. If that makes me incompetent and a bad businessman, well I guess it does. Funny, I kinda thought we were all partners in this effort...but my own resources are GONE, we are about to have our utilities shut off and lose our house (all too true)...and we are SCARED...yet I continue to try to keep my word  to you all. 

NEW DVD ORDERS WILL HELP SOLVE THE PROBLEM...sales have been MINIMAL since the factory issue with disc 1 in early August (which has been dealt with). Tell your friends to BUY WITH CONFIDENCE. I continue to do all that I can. Complaining about us selling new copies of V3 (like some of you have)...makes no sense. HELPING me get your Pre-Order to you...well, that makes sense. (While I'm still able).


I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU READ AND CONSIDER THIS...PLEASE HELP ME GET YOUR (REMAINING) PRE-ORDERS IN THE MAIL TO YOU:


There are 3 buttons below that can allow you to help me with shipping your orders (if you wish). You can click on any button below and send me an order that will automatically fill in your shipping instructions so I can ship with just a couple of clicks…this helps me, helps you, solves a problem for both of us. The first is to send $3.00 for domestic AND Canadian V3+slipcase shipping; The 2nd is to send $9.00 for all International shipping of V3+slipcase; the third button is to send me $3.00 to help me ship the replacement disc #1 to those that are still waiting for theirs.

V3+ Slipcovers and Pre-Orders Update

Just a quick short note this time...since the last post (a week ago) I've sent out over 25 more V3+slipcover pre-orders (domestic and international)...thank you to all those that are helping with the postage. I continue to ship out the remaining 175+ pre-orders.  New orders help fund the shipping of the remaining Pre-Orders. At the moment I have about 14 more Disc 1 replacements left to mail (although I'm still getting a few requests from those that hadn't yet checked…Note that ALL V3's sent out since August 8th do NOT have the faulty disc, all were reprinted/replaced by the factory and returned to me on August 8th). What a nightmare it was, but FIXED!

SC V3 Pre-Order Shipping Update

Martin Milner (1931 - 2015)

Where things stand on the Volume 3+ Slipcovers Pre-Orders ...AND more.

PLEASE READ this entire post!

Since Volume #3 was released on July 28, 2015, I have shipped out over 500 V3's and slipcovers to those that Pre-Ordered (all between 2009 and 2014). 

All 136 of you that contributed to "SC SHIP-AID" in late 2013 / early 2014 (thank you!!) have been sent yours.

Everyone that sent $1.00 participating in "SPEEDY-SHIP" (over 400 since July 28th - thank you!!) have been sent yours. 

So what's left to ship?

There are 288 domestic US V3 Pre-Orders remaining to be shipped...and 39 International Pre-Orders remaining...and 14 Canadian Pre-Orders remaining to be shipped. That's 341 left to ship!

ALSO there are 45 Replacement Disc #1's remaining to be shipped (I've shipped 55 out so far and requests are still coming in sporadically) to those who received defective discs #1's. The factory replaced all defective discs and ALL orders since August 6th, 2015 are receiving the newly manufactured discs. I've been sending them out a few at a time and in the order I've received the requests.
So what's the problem?

Every new DVD order (plus the money from each Speedy Ship dollar) has been used to ship out those 500+ domestic and Canadian and International Pre-Orders...every penny received. This was no problem as orders came in briskly for 2 weeks...Then on August 12 that stopped...going from an average of 7 per day to less than 1 per day. I have waited since then for this to improve...but it has not in 5 weeks. I have continued to ship out the remaining Pre-Orders as best I can, but things are not good. 

I have once again put myself in harm's way in trying to honor my responsibility here. I owed the factory a large payment on August 28 which was 3 weeks ago...It's going to be hard to ship by the end of the month without electricity. 

I also thought the rude emails were over but not so...people complaining they haven't received their DVDs, that: "I'll be DAMNED if I'll give you another DAMNED DIME!"..."I am OUTRAGED that you are selling new copies that are shipped BEFORE MINE!"..."WHERE IS MY DVD? Send it NOW!! ... sigh.

Selling a bunch of DVDs will help solve much of The Problem...tell your friends.


I HIGHLY recommend you consider this!

Volume 3 + Slipcovers Pre-Orders & 
Disc 1 Replacements

I'm slowly but surely mailing out the pre-orders of Volume 3 and the slipcases...AND the Disc #1 replacements...please be patient.

###

From The Mailbag!

Here's some of the email and messages that have been coming in concerning V3:



July 29th: Woohoo! Shipping notice already! :-) THAT's worth a dollar.
...

Got it Saturday (August 1st)! Gonna start watching tonight...

Thanks John,

The slipcover makes a very nice presentation to the complete series.
Don't know how you got all three here in less than 2 days!! Good luck with your sales on this volume.

Hi John,

Thank you for your really rapid turnaround, I didn't even have a chance to anticipate it's arrival in the old Carly Simon tradition! The disc is swell, better than expected, with crisp, clean playback and excellent sound with dead-on EQ. I finished watching it yesterday and saw something in the episode "Room 313" that like the Loch Ness monster, I had long read about but never really expected to see: a 49-star US flag.

I also saw in "The Korea Story" an uncredited appearance by MiG ace "Jabby" Jabara! Even the commercials were entertaining, SCARY but entertaining.

The 3-disc DVD box looks terrific all filled up and looks great on the bookshelf in my clubhouse! Seriously though, I don't have the word to thank you for all of your incredibly fine, arduous work over many years; my "Steve Canyon Special Edition" dvd has a copyright date of 2007, so you have been at this forever and a day, I don't know what I'll do without you!

Thank you so, so MUCH, I wish you continued success and hope you'll find some more Milton Caniff-iana to tempt us with, you are the keeper of the flame!

All the BEST,

John Dacey

John,

Just finished the first disc of Vol 3, which I got earlier in the week. THANK YOU so very much for hanging in there and delivering what I can only call a "gift" to all of us middle aged aviation nuts!

You've done a beautiful job. It really looks good and I think your efforts were very well spent.

Very best regards,

Chet Zaba

Dear John,

I received today the Steve Canyon Vol. 3 and Slipcase nicely packed and in mint conditions!!

I would like to express you my gratitude for doing so wonderful job restoring the Series and giving me the opportunity I waited for a half century to watch again the episode "Operation Intercept" the one I most remember from my childhood!

Congratulations for all your efforts in doing the task and surely the results are beyond all expectations!!

Thanks a lot!

I wish you all the best!

Your brazilian friend,

Hi John,

I received Vol.3 in the mail today. Boy,was I glad to see it. The airmen of America salutes you. You are to be commended  for resurrecting this lost film from the scrap heap of cinema history. 

Long may it live for future generations to cherish this film. Again thank you for having the patience and perseverance to see it through.

What an accomplishment this was.

John: 

I received my volume 3 DVD today and I want to personally thank you and everyone else who may have helped bring this project to fruition. I know it took longer than most people anticipated but I want you to know that the wait was worth it. My eldest son (who's going to be 32 this year) and I sat down and watched every episode of volume 1 & 2 together and enjoyed every one of them. I called him at work today to tell him volume 3 finally arrived and we're planning to watch them together on his next day off. He's as excited as I am and I know we'll share another father-son moment. Thank you for making that happen and thank you for all the sacrifices you've made personally to get these final episodes into our hands.

Sorry about slow response.  Yes, my disc 1 has the flaw - 

If you need help with shipping cost for replacement disc, please let me know how to compensate. 

Thank you mucho!

Hi John,

Just received Steve Canyon volume three plus slipcase. No problems with the discs.
FANTASTIC PRINTS!
It’s nice to have them displayed in the slipcase.
Thanks again for your amazing effort in bringing this series to life in such pristine condition.
I commend you, as do all Steve Canyon fans!

Cheers

Trevor

Hello John,

I just tried my DVD and it has the problem.
If you could send me the replacement disc that would be great.
Please don’t rush, I understand what you are  doing and how you are doing it.

You are doing a great job!!!!!!!!!

All the very best

Hi, John -

Wow, good timing there!  I finished disc one of volume 3 last night, and yes, "The Muller Story" freezes in mid-end credits (right after Dean Fredericks' name, sometimes at the Milt Caniff created box).  I ran it three times, tried fast forwarding but couldn't skip past it.  Never saw the rest of the credits nor the Chesterfield commercial.  Does this qualify me for a replacement disc, or should I try buffing the disc first?

FWIW the three volumes fit very neatly into that boxed set container, thanks!

Hope to view the other disc tonight or tomorrow depending upon family plans....

Glad To Be Of Service!

Greg Kelley

P.S. --  "Room 313" -- Roy Thinnes as a police marksman, toting a vintage Winchester (?!?) -- wow, man, way cool.  But why didn't Amanda Blake get any end credit notice?)

(John Ellis commenting: We don't know why Amanda Blake was not credited...I mentioned that she wasn't listed to Steve Canyon series Casting Director Gene Reynolds, his reply, "That's TERRIBLE!". Either he didn't recall or didn't want to say.
________________________________________________________

AT LAST! 

I have really been looking forward to receiving the DVDs. Even though I have been civil and not obnoxious, I have been anxious to get Volume 3. Watching Steve Canyon as a kid led me to join the Air Force. I enlisted in 1969 and retired in 1997 with 28 years active and reserve, including 2 tours in Vietnam. Thanks for all of your effort and suffering the slings and arrows of the uncivil.

You must have broken into some Egyptian tomb to get the original film elements for this project. Even when you think you're finished a new curse is released to bring new despair your way.

My disk is fine and want to say thank you. 

...

Hang in there, find moments of happiness, and maybe that on easier projects :) 

Volume 3 looks great. The episodes I've watched are gorgeous. We've saving each episode as a special treat from John, trying to savor them one at a time.

John, 

Received #3 last week on vacation and just a reviewed Disc 1 this evening. Muller story froze at 26/29 minutes but still watched the complete episode. Long road for you with your efforts to accomplish this tremendous task but "You the Man!!"

Hello Mr. Ellis,

An awesome Thank You goes out to you for your
understanding and efforts in bringing Grandpa some happiness. He has
completed season one and we will start season 2 probably tomorrow. If you
could have seen is expression when he opened the package you would have
shed a tear for sure... I really can't express the joy he displayed and the
energy he has shown while watching them. He even remembered certain parts
of a few before the scene showed... quite funny ! ... Hope he will make it
through all episodes as he now continues in the hospital.

Thank you thank you !! for all you have done in this situation.

I owe ya one !

Larry Adams

Thank you also for your working through this to it’s completion. It is really great to have all 3 volumes together and in their slipcase too. Every bit of your effort on this is greatly appreciated.

With the best to you always,

Hi John,

I checked Vol. 3, Disc 1 this morning as instructed and sure enough mine has the defect.
Disc freezes while credits are rolling and manufacturing flaw is visible on disc.

Thanks for all your effort in keeping Steve Canyon alive!!

Sincerely,

Fred Eaton

________________________________________________________

Hi, John!

Wow!!!  The Vol 3 Steve Canyon is terrific!

And no problem with the end of disc 1.

And I saw my name in the ‘thank you’ section.  I am so proud.

Take care,

Jim Gaudet
________________________________________________________

Hi John,

 I almost hate to send you this, kind of like poking you in the eye after your fantastic efforts, but my disc 1 does indeed skip and freeze during the Chesterfield commercial. Closer inspection does show a small mark on the disc where your picture indicates.

 I’ve been watching these and savoring each like a fine wine. The quality is outstanding! I dare anyone to put a late 1950’s show on  DVD that comes anywhere close to the outstanding quality of your restoration. Thank you for such stellar detail and the ability to see these priceless gems again.
 On a different note, if the Steve Canyon hats are ever produced again, Please keep my name on a list, as I somehow missed the first run and would love to have one.

 Thanks again and sorry for the trouble.

 All my best,

 Keith Osteen

John,

 Egads! The forces of the universe must be against Steve Canyon on DVD!!!!  YES, I HAVE ONE OF THE DREADED FLAWED DISCS !  Yes, I need a replacement disc as soon as you can get to it.  Good thing the flaw was not on "INTERCEPT", or i'd be visiting you in person about this !

This must be the icing on the cake for you after all the efforts to get us a perfect product...and it is as near to perfect as a human can get!  Trust the technology to screw with us, every time!  Seriously, what I have seen is great...takes me right back to watching the episodes as a child! 

Again, my sincere thanks for doing this for all of us!  And congrats on such an EXCELLENT PRODUCT...even with the fickle finger(print) of Fate on that disc !!
I hope you have a calm and restful Autumn. I'd say "Fall" but why tempt fate ???

Dear John!

My DVD is OK! The flaw is there, but not in the reflexive area of the disc. It is on the edge of the transparent area, next to the center hole-so, it plays normally! I tested it in 4 players(2 Blu-Ray’s).
Thank you for your attention and THANK YOU to bring me back so good memories of my youth! I watched the series in the early 60’s- I’m 58 now…
Forgive my poor English.
Best regards!

Volume 3 has arrived and is very well done. I went right to Operation Intercept which was the first television show I have a completely conscious memory of watching. The part when the camera zooms in on the frozen pilots has been a vivid memory from my childhood at age 6 years. 

I have been very skeptical after so many years, but am glad my cynicism has been proven wrong. I hope Mr. Ellis can soon rest and recover his health and sanity. Not the way I would run an airline, but it's moot now and the results are great. Thank you, Mr Ellis.

Love the new Volume 3, even with the minor glitch from the factory! Fwiw, you made the right decision to release Vol 3 now, even without the documentaries and other materials. Was better in my opinion to get Vol 3 out the door once and for all, than to never get it finished. If you are able one day to put another volume together containing the omitted documentaries and other materials, I'll gladly buy it from you. (Suggestion: don't advertise the new volume for sale until AFTER it's ready to go to the factory. That way, no appearance of broken promises, no undue pressure on you, no wise guys insulting you on the Internet, etc.) 

You are welcome to keep the extra buck I paid for the Speedy Ship. You've more than earned it! Thanks for everything you've done for us!

FINALLY!!!!!

Mr. Ellis (or John, if I may be so informal) I have never been so happy in my life, as I was when I received my copy of Volume 3, of the Steve Canyon series. My only complaint is that the episodes are too short! This series should have been a Sixty (60) Minute series. I guess its just that I can't get enough of this series. Why was NBC and ABC so stupid as to not renew this series for 5 or 6 more seasons!!!!????  To see my name on the credits as a contributor to bring Steve Canyon back to life on DVD has been more rewarding (to me) than any of the Roger Corman epics I ever worked on.

There will never, ever be anyone who could/can play Steve Canyon, better that Mr. Dean Fredricks.

Well, I just wanted you to know that you have done a thing that has brought so much pleasure to so many "Steve Canyon" fans. Now to put on the second disc of Volume 3 and relive my childhood. You know, when it was too cold, or snowy to play outside, my friends and cousin's played make-believe of last weeks episode of "Steve Canyon". Ahaaaa, what a wonderful era.  

God Bless you and your family,

WILLIAM DONAHUE

SC V3 Is OUT!!! (and other news)...

While THE COMPLETE STEVE CANYON ON TV
VOLUME 3 DVD HAS been RELEASED
(on July 28th 2015)!!! ...

…not all copies have been shipped yet. If you haven't received your pre-order yet, PLEASE BE PATIENT!  I've been going through the pre-orders and figuring out who got sent theirs and who is left (which is a lot of work) and also checking what is the most current address to ship to (which is also a lot of work). Our air conditioning quit the other day and since we've had a string of 104 degree days here and this is also slowing me down.

Operation Intercept

If you want to make sure you get it RIGHT AWAY (AND SENT TO THE CORRECT ADDRESS) PLEASE click the "Speedy Ship" for $1.00 in our "Caniff/Canyon Shoppe" on our blog…then I am CERTAIN the address for you is correct and can pay for that shipping label with just a couple of clicks! (Although two people didn't update their address on Paypal after moving and sent me frantic messages to change it before shipping. And OH YES we ARE getting RICH on the 66¢ of that buck that we end up with ;) that IS a joke…actually that 66¢ all goes into shipping all the pre-orders (and each domestic V3 w/slipcase costs $2.53 to send via USPS 1st Class Mail…each INTERNATIONAL package of same content costs $8.22 to ship!).



Please Note - This "SPEEDY-SHIP" button is ONLY for those that Pre-Ordered Volume 3 between 2009 and 2014!

(button deactivated)
(click the above button to order SCV3+Slipcase Pre-Order Speedy Ship)


(And if you are broke or against giving me any more money, or don't trust Paypal or WHATEVER reason, just email me. be nice and tell me your tale of woe, and I'll refund the buck (at your request and AFTER SHIPPING) or we'll figure something else out. Again, it's NOT about the MONEY, it's the ease of getting your CORRECT SHIPPING INFO INTO THE SYSTEM (and saving my crippled hands from more typing)…it takes about 10 minutes to input each address manually for me, and I can really only manage about 16 or so packages that way per day. I've actually done about 120 in one DAY to speedy ship participants. Big difference there! :)

Replacement disc #1's from factory in paper sleeves…and sturdy disc shipping containers we are using. If you have reported a faulty disc #1, you WILL get one of these replacements in the regular mail within the next 3 weeks.

FAULTY DISC #1's UPDATE

I need to hear from you soon as possible if your disc is faulty, you can easily email me by clicking here to let me know to send you a replacement. If that fails try this email link: stevecanyondvd@gmail.com

I started shipping out the replacement disc #1's today, am going to ship out 5 to 10 copies a day…I still am having stragglers report their faulty discs…so far about 75-ish bad discs to mail out…I have 200 from the factory in paper sleeves for that purpose…ALL OF YOU THAT HAVE REPORTED FAULTY DISC #1's  WILL GET A REPLACEMENT…just be patient, it may take a week or 3. The shipping schedule for these all depends on having money on hand from sales…and more painful typing in of addresses. Getting it done.

###

PRICE CHANGES

I have TEMPORARILY dropped the prices back to what they were for all our DVDs…this is all an experiment and I SUGGEST you order BEFORE I RAISE THE PRICES PERMANENTLY.


###

That's it for now...

I love hearing from those that got theirs and really appreciate the pictures many are sending of the slipcases, box sets and V3 in their homes…it really PEPS my day!
