To not wander off altogether: MeTV is a digital sub-station. In Boston it's channel 5's, hence it's 5.2 on the dial or whatever they call it now. This changes from city to city and if you go to Titan TV (my bible for such things) and enter your zip code, you can find it. If you're cable, it's probably a Comcast channel,--this confusing, I know--if not, like me, it's regular. You can adjust Titan to either Broadcast or cable. It's a bit confusing at first, and if you use a registry cleaner even semi-regularly it will erase your settings and you'll have to re-login,--O, the Internet!--but it's a useful tool as to what's up as to broadcast TV. I don't have cable anymore, haven't for years, don't really want it.
As to the DVD, I've heard good things about it, and the guys who did the commentary have a blog callled A Thriller A Day, which is great fun to read, and to which I've contributed under another name, which I'm sure if you go there you can easily "decipher" by my attitude . One of the best of the regulars,--it's a clubby place, sometimes too much for my liking--Gary Gerani, is a great guy. He's defended Pigeons From Hell from all "attackers" by defining its aesthetic as that of a "fever dream", as he calls it, as distinct from a drama, which is to say it plays by its own oneiric logic, shouldn't be judged by using reason, which destroys the dream-like effect which is its strongest point. A Thriller A Day is a part of a larger Blogger Dashboard. If you're a Google member you're half-way there, and if not, all you have to do is join. Some great stuff, includes blogs on Kraft Suspense Theater, the Hitchcock shows, various kind of science fiction films. The same crew did We Are Controlling Transmission,--an Outer Limits blog--which, like the other blog, covers every episode of a classic show, leaves places for visitors to comment and join the discussion.
To return to the distinguished Mr. Wolfit: his love of the stage limited his film work, which was his choice. His film career reminds me a little of Tod Slaughter's, by which I mean he was used for his weirdness. Slaughter was like that on stage. Wolfit, for all his quirks, apparently wasn't. Difficult, yes, but not literally bizarre. It's just as well they used Blackmer for the Crowley/Castavets character in Rosmeary's Baby. Wolfit would have thrown the film off-kilter. Another distinguished Brit, Maurice Evans, beautifully played Rosemary's one true ally, Hutch, but I can't see Wolfit in that role, either. Unambiguous virtue is a quality I cannot see him easily conveying. Interesting comparison with Robert Newton. They were really different types: the camera loved Newton, and he came off as larger than life on screen. There was a lovable, benign quality to him, even when playing Bill Sykes, Long John Silver or Blackbeard the Pirate, a quality Wolfit lacked.
