Canceled Too Soon #139: 'Collector's Item' (1957)

Vincent Price and Peter Lorre are two of the most iconic actors in motion picture history, and absolutely legends in the horror genre. So why, oh why, has hardly anybody heard of "Collector's Item," a TV pilot starring Price and Lorre as antique dealers who solve mysteries? Especially since it also co-stars Whitney Blake, the co-creator of the hit TV series "One Day at a Time?"

In this week's episode of Canceled Too Soon, we're going to find out! Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold dig into the history of this forgotten TV pilot and figure out if it should have gone to series, and whether "Collector's Item" would work as a 21st Century reboot!

Give it a listen!
