      • Director Jacques Tourneur achieved fame in the 1940s by making a series of horror movies which have attained "cult" status: "Cat People," "I Walked with a Zombie," and "The Leopard Man."

      • Sometimes it seems as if all the heroic leading men of TV westerns were tied up and whipped on at least one occasion. Keith Larsen did not start this trend -- that "honor" goes to Scott Forbes in a 5-24-1957 episode of "Jim Bowie" titled "Gone to Texas" -- but Larsen is the first whose flogging occurs in color. As a prisoner on a road-gang, Larsen commits an act which he knows will result in a flogging. (This is to draw attention away from Buddy Ebsen stealing some tools needed for an escape plan.) Sure enough, the French pull off Larsen's shirt, force him against a tree, and begin to whip away, but -- perhaps to lessen blood and violence on a "family-friendly" program -- the camera focuses on the flogger and thus we never see the whip actually striking its target. Later, however, whippings on TV westerns were not so modestly staged. (Note Ty Hardin writhing under the lash in the 11-17-59 episode of "Bronco.")
