Look, ya'll! I'm blogging!OK, seriously how fun is this? I feel so hipster. And so honored that all four of you have dropped in on my first-ever blog. As for the name, I gotta say that this was a tough one. Not much rhymes with Damian — Bahamian, New Canaan, that's about it — and it was stressed to me that Omen jokes were just too weird. (Although I did like the idea of "Channel 666.") But instead, I stuck with what I wanted to write about: the glee one can find revisiting their favorite TV shows on DVD. Hence, "The Joy of Sets."So once a week, maybe more, I'll be sharing the Joy and shedding some light on whatever TV on DVD set currently devouring my free time. Also, for anyone who remembers the original Watercooler column here on TVGuide.com, there may also be occasional updates on (and input from) Pepito the Wonder Chihuahua, who is right now staring at me with his bug eyes like I owe him scratches. 'Cause that's how he rolls.And I promise, these entries will be fun-s...
Question: In the late '60s or early '70s I saw movie version of The Turn of the Screw that I thought starred Marlon Brando. I've never been able to find it on video. Am I wrong?Answer: You're only wrong in thinking that you saw a remake of the psychological thriller The Innocents (1960) with Marlon Brando. What you saw was a prequel. The Innocents, based on Henry James' novella The Turn of the Screw, is about a high-strung young governess (Deborah Kerr) who comes to believe that the children she's been hired to care for on an isolated country estate have been corrupted by the malevolent influence of their former governess, Miss Jessel, and her lover, the brutal manservant Quint.
