In Los Angeles? See The Retro Action-Adventure-Thon September 21, 22

The Paley Center for Media is partnering with the Warner Archive Collection for a thrill-packed weekend (September 21, 22) of "rare screenings, exhibits, and onstage conversations celebrating a classically cool collection of some of TV’s greatest action-adventure heroes."

Great TV heroes come in all shapes and sizes. Some swing from vines or keep the oceans safe with their superhuman strength, while others are larger-than-life western lawmen, or can change themselves into the world’s mightiest mortal by uttering a single, magic word. At their best, they capture our childhood hopes and dreams and serve them up in a nonstop thrill ride of TV goodness. Join us at the Paley Center as we kick off the fall by partnering with our good friends at one of the coolest DVD imprints around, Warner Archive Collection, for a festival of rare screenings and in-person conversations with some classic TV greats. Plus enjoy guided tours of the Paley Center and Warner Bros.’ Television Out of the Box exhibit featuring a treasure trove of iconic costumes, props, and sets spanning six decades of your favorite shows and stars.

This sounds like an incredibly fun and nostalgic two days! Plus, you can see Patrick Duffy (THE MAN FROM ATLANTIS), Michael Gray (SHAZAM!), Clint Walker (CHEYENNE) and Ron Ely (TARZAN) in person discussing the classics.
