Drabble became The Black Windmill. It can be found on pressed DVD in the UK. The First Deadly Sin was filmed several years after this announcement by Filmways, with direction by Brian G. Hutton and Frank Sinatra in the lead role. I don't think Paradise Mountain was ever filmed. Telefon was the subject of an amusing anecdote I read about in a Siegel biography. Siegel wanted Bronson--sans mustache--for the starring role. Bronson resisted, saying, "No mustache. No Bronson." Bronson won.
