It was the first TV series with a female cop as its protagonist. (Sorry, Angie Dickinson.) It was the first series to be shot on location in New York City. And it's one of the earliest cop dramas to delve into social issues, rather than cavalierly divide the world into good and bad people. So why don't more viewers remember "Decoy" (1957-58)? A gritty, well-written -- albeit, low-budget -- series, "Decoy" plays as well in the age of streaming as it did six decades earlier.
In Universal's classic horror films of the 1930s and '40s, you often sensed when a monster was about to appear on the screen. There was foreshadowing in the form of a full moon, or a flapping bat, or the crackle of electricity ... and then fanfare in a musical cue by Franz Waxman or Hans J. Salter ... and then, BAM, the monster.
Imagine singing two songs that become simultaneous Top 10 hits -- but nobody knows it was you. It happened to Ron Dante when, during the same week in 1969, "Sugar, Sugar" by the Archies was at No. 1, and "Tracy" by the Cuff Links was at No. 9. The rub: Neither the Archies nor the Cuff Links were real groups. The "Archies" were a TV cartoon tie-in, and the "Cuff Links" was a collective of musicians, not a proper band. Dante sang lead and backing vocals, uncredited, on both songs.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
