Answer: Yep. Kind of cool, isn't it? The street is a standing set at Universal Studios that was built in 1946. It has appeared in the movies "Harvey," "Bedtime for Bonzo," "The Ghost and Mr. Chicken" and "Delta House," as well as in such TV series as "The Munsters," "The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries," "Providence" and "Leave It to Beaver." Golly!
Question: I am inquiring about a TV movie from the 1980s from the Disney Channel. It was like the movie "Beetlejuice" about a family who moved into a haunted house. I would love for my children to see it. Can you tell me the title and if it's on video or DVD?
Answer: Sounds like the 1986 TV movie "Mr. Boogedy," with Richard Masur, Mimi Kennedy and David Faustino. The title role was played by Howard Witt, who also appeared in the 1987 follow-up "Bride of Boogedy." Neither film is on DVD.

Question: The wildfires in California reminded me of Linda Darnell, a strikingly beautiful actress who died in a fire. Didn't she perish trying to save a friend's children from a fire? Was it a kind of fire like the ones in Southern California?

Question: My mom is positive that Ellen DeGeneres' current girlfriend stars on "CSI: NY" as detective Mac Taylor's British girlfriend. I don't think that's true since I see no resemblance between the two, but she won't take my word for it. Can you help us settle this?
Answer: You mean the actress who plays Dr. Peyton Driscoll, right? The actress is Claire Forlani. Not to be confused with Portia de Rossi, who is Ellen DeGeneres' partner.
Question: In the late 1950s or '60s I saw a movie about an orchestra conductor who fell in love with a young blond girl. I don't remember the name, but it may be a remake of "Intermezzo." But I can't find any mention of this anywhere. Am I dreaming?
Answer: Sounds like the 1968 film "Interlude," with Oskar Werner, Barbara Ferris, Donald Sutherland and, in a small role, John Cleese.
It's not on video or DVD.
