# 1. Five Came Back ( 1939 ) remade as Back From Eternity ( 1956 ). Love the taglines '' You can take the Ekberg out of the Jungle BUT YOU CANT TAKE THE JUNGLE OUT OF EKBERG!''. Lucille Ball's original role was played by Anita Ekberg in the remake. Both film's were directed by Australian John Farrow,seventeen years apart, and produced by RKO.

    # 2. Cornell Woolrich's short story The Boy Cried Murder ( aka Fire Escape ) was first published in Murder Mystery Magazine in 1947. It was later filmed and released by RKO Radio as The Window in 1949. Three other adaptions of the short story were made following the first adaptation of the novel and they were The Boy Who Cried Murder ( 1966 ), ( retaining the short story original title ), Eyewitness ( 1970 ) and finally Cloak And Dagger ( 1984 ).
