Sokolsky on the Arts and Entertainment
A weekly program focusing on the arts and entertainment
So, what could Annie and the ‘Green Lantern’ have in common?
Very little, says Arts and Entertainment Editor Bob Sokolsky. Except for one thing, Both went from comic strips to the movie or TV screen.
That’s not a totally rare occurrence, Sokolsky declares. But some have done it successfully. So have Blondie and Batman.
Some, he notes have even succeeded on several fronts – movies, radio, TV and stage. And Spiderman – well, Sokolsky says, he might be close to joining that select group – if he can avoid any more theatrical mishaps.
Others were not as fortunate although Sokolsky says the Phantom did score well in a special Riverside venue -- a popular downtown bar where a movie buff brought in chapters from a vintage matinee serial.
