From the Twitch Live Stage at New York Comic Con 2017, IMDb LIVE host Kevin Smith talks to Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada about the development of the Marvel franchise, his history at Comic Con and more.
Local radio and TV personality Ralph Story narrates this tale (two tales really. Things That Aren't Here Anymore was part one) of things that used to be in Los Angeles and aren't here anymore. Like the Angel's Flight trolley, the Brown Derby restaurant, car hops, Schwab's Pharmacy, Helm's bakeries, Lion Country Safari, the Spruce Goose, the Coconut Grove, etc., etc.. Mention is made also of old TV shows like Sheriff John and Hobo Kelly. It runs now and again on the local PBS station, KCET. I'm not sure if it's shown nationwide. I presume not.
While most of the tale is told by Story, there are also other people who remember those old days and give their thoughts on some of the old landmarks. It's big fun to see and remember yesteryear, but I'm not sure how fun you would find it if you hadn't grown up there.
Sadly, since 2006, Ralph Story isn't here anymore either.
