Steve Canyon - The Latest DVD Updates for 'The Complete TV Series, Volume 3'

Previously expected to release this past June, the delayed set is getting more new extras!

Posted by David Lambert
It's been a while since we've updated you about Steve Canyon - The Complete TV Series, Volume 3 on DVD. Back in mid-May, we passed along word that the set was expected to ship in June. It hasn't gone out yet, and according to DVD producer John Ellis the reasons for this new delay have to do with a combination of things. Per the most recent blog entry a few weeks ago, they "are still working on the last few fixes and ADDITIONS to Steve Canyon Volume 3"...and they note that "if it were possible to go any faster we would. Please be patient for a bit longer." What is the addition John speaks of at the blog? Here's more on that:
    After 5 years of conflicting schedules I finally managed to get to record an interview with the very busy Robert Sallin, whose first job in Hollywood was as a troubleshooter on the Steve Canyon TV series! Listed as "Producers Assistant," Bob was involved in many phases of the production. Having produced and directed films for the US Air Force previously (see picture below), he came well prepared for his stint on Steve Canyon. He was integral to the production, dealing with everything including directing 2nd Unit to obtaining aircraft for the episodes, and his comments are of great interest to us all.

    We also interviewed actor Richard Weber, who appeared in "Phantom Planet" in 1961 with Dean Fredericks, [and] who had a lot of nice things to say about working with Dean! You will be able to hear him on the Dean Fredericks documentary on V3.
At the blog you can see a picture with Fredericks, Weber, and famed WWII fighter ace and Medal of Honor recipient Gregory "Pappy" Boyington (who was portrayed by Robert Conrad in a dramatized fashion for the classic TV series Baa Baa Black Sheep/Black Sheep Squadron, a show whose completion on DVD we're all still waiting on). Also depicted at the blog is Sallin, with the "Genesis Device" from the movie Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan. Go check 'em out! And then stay tuned here, because we'll be back with the latest information, as further developments occur. Our thanks to John Ellis for making sure we had an update for our readers!
