Mixed Notes - Aug. 6 (Expanded)

By Rich Heldenfels Published: August 6, 2012

Since the original post I have added items about a "Charlie's Angels" box and  a "Dictator" app. Scroll down for them.

Fox Sports Ohio has set some replays of the Pro Football Hall of Fame parade. The official word: FOX Sports Ohio will be airing the Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Festival Timken Grand Parade from 6-8pm on this Sunday, August 12. The parade took place this past Saturday, August 4 in Canton, Ohio. ... FOX Sports Ohio will also replay the 2-hour airing of the parade on Monday, August 13 at 8:30pm.

With "Vertigo" topping the Sight & Sound poll of greatest films of all time, the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque has scheduled showings on Sept. 14 and 15.

Sony is going to issue a complete-series box of the original "Charlie's Angels," including the previously unreleased fifth season. The official word:

All the action-packed adventures of the legendary trio of crime-fighting beauties is now available in one set from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, when the classic 1970s TV series -- CHARLIE’S ANGELS: THE COMPLETE SERIES – debuts on DVD September 25. CHARLIE’S ANGELS follows three sexy, female private detectives – roles originated by Kate Jackson (TV’s “The Rookies”), Farrah Fawcett (TV’s “The Burning Bed”) and Jaclyn Smith (TV’s “Shear Genius”) -- as they solve cases assigned by their never-seen-but-heard boss, Charlie, and his liaison John Bosley (David Doyle). Later seasons feature Cheryl Ladd (TV’s “Las Vegas”), Shelley Hack (TV’s “Jack and Mike”) and Tanya Roberts (TV’s “That ‘70s Show”). The 27-disc box set features all five seasons, and will include the never-before-released-on-DVD fifth and final season

Need a Dictator app? Here's the official word on one: Fans of Sacha Baron Cohen’s latest comedic tour de force can get in on the fun with a new free app launching on August 14th, the same day that THE DICTATOR Banned* & Unrated will be available for Digital Download on all platforms and one week prior to the film’s August 21st Blu-ray™ and DVD debut.


Visit to download the app, then scroll through photos of Admiral General Aladeen’s copious hook-ups and upload a photo of yourself to join the Wadiyan leader’s infamous Wall of Sexual Conquests. Users can then share their post on Facebook and Twitter to—ahem—enlarge their photo on the wall and even earn a gold frame. Once uploaded, photos will also be given captions by the Supreme Ruler indicating the participant’s prowess or predilections.


THE DICTATOR Banned* & Unrated will be available in a Blu-ray/DVD combo that includes both an unrated version of the film with nearly 20 minutes of footage not seen in theaters, as well as the original theatrical version. The set also includes over 30 minutes of hilarious deleted and extended scenes, a Larry King interview with Admiral General Aladeen, a Digital Copy and more. 

 A box set of Kathy Griffin specials is coming in October. From the official word: Since early 2011, three-time Grammy Nominee and two-time Emmy® Award–winning comedian Kathy Griffin has been breaking records with her series of comedy specials. Now you can experience Griffin’s knockout performances together, uncensored and complete with unaired bonus footage, with the 2-Disc set The Kathy Griffin Collection: Red, White & Raw.

 Available October 30th, 2012 from Shout! Factory, The Kathy Griffin Collection: Red, White & Raw includes the comedy specials “Pants Off” and “Tired Hooker” as well as five shows never before available on DVD: “Gurrl Down”, “50 & Not Pregnant”, “Whores on Crutches”, “Kathy Griffin Does the Bible Belt” and “Balls of Steel.” As the queen of Hollywood gossip and purveyor of uproarious tales involving herself, her mother Maggie and a dirty laundry list of famed celebrities, Kathy delivers with unparalleled hilarity and gusto before sold-out crowds on every stage.

A&E has made some schedule changes. The word: Intervention” will premiere Monday, August 13 at 9PM ET/PT, airing back-to-back premiere episodes in its first week at 9PM and 10PM, but airing premieres only in the 9PM timeslot thereafter. “Beyond Scared Straight” will premiere Monday, August 20 at 10PM ET/PT.

 When you go to see "The Bourne Legacy," you may not be wondering what kind of watch the main character is wearing. But just in case you do, the watch company volunteered some information:

The watch manufacturer IWC Schaffhausen enjoys a worldwide reputation today, continuing the legacy of the American watchmaker and engineer Florentine Ariosto Jones, who founded the business in 1868. As the Engineers of Fine Watchmaking, IWC creates men's watches that meet the highest technical standards, and has been developing iconic Pilot's Watches for more than 70 years. IWC has a longstanding passion for filmmaking. Not only does IWC cultivate longstanding personal relationships with several international actors, film directors and producers; but it has also produced a number of its own film projects with some of its Friends of the Brand. Additionally, IWC watches have been featured in Hollywood movies and US TV series. The "Bourne Legacy" hits theaters on August 10, 2012, and IWC is proud to be a part of this cineastic milestone.

Ever the daring and bold leading man, Jeremy Renner's character, Aaron Cross, dons an IWC Pilot's Watch Double Chronograph Edition TOP GUN (Ref. IW 379901), exemplifying perfectly the thrill-seeking lifestyle of an elite agent. The watch case, with its 46-millimeter diameter, is made of black high-tech ceramic; the crown, push-buttons and back cover are made of matte grey titanium. Powered by the 79230-caliber chronograph movement, the watch is the very embodiment of IWC's expertise in the creation of professional Pilot's Watches. This watch is the predecessor to the current IWC Pilot's Watch collection including the Pilot's Watch Chronograph TOP GUN Miramar and the Big Pilot's Watch Perpetual Calendar TOP GUN.
