Brad Stevens discusses Penn & Teller Get Killed for Sight & Sound's ongoing Lost & Found series on neglected films.

From the same issue, here's Peter Biskind's obituary.

I'm working on a piece about this show (and its lamentable unavailability) but, short answer: no. Not in any major US archive nor in Penn's own collection. NBC may have it, but they have elements scattered in several vaults and were churlish when inquiries were made about a search.

That's terrible. It's one of the few empty spots for him around. Criminal that it and many films like it (I'm primarily thinking of Frankenheimer's Turn of the Screw) aren't given their due.

"Turn of the Screw" ran on TVLand once, believe it or not, but there are still many important Frankenheimer (and Arthur Penn) shows that don't exist outside the vaults, or maybe at all.

Flesh and Blood, incidentally, was mentioned in the NY Times's recent obit for its author, William Hanley, who was also John Frankenheimer's favored screenwriter around the same time.
