/one quick thing: some of these don't appear to be in the filmography on this site, like "Marathon Shoes" and "on the Terrace"...

Can you post a photo of the catalog page? I suspect these were used prints being sold, at the time, and not new printings from Blackhawk.

Two Bray films in the list, Bobby Bumps' Fourth and Perpetual Motion, were not handled by Guaranteed Pictures. Bray Studios was still marketing these titles for television and non-theatrical use in the late 50s, and some used prints may have slipped through the cracks and into Blackhawk's used films department, for resale. There is no record in the surviving Bray papers of the studio ever having sold or licensed anything to Blackhawk, directly.

Similarly, some of the Inkwells and Fables listed do not seem to be Guaranteed offerings to me. Some of the Fables may be from the Commonwealth package, and some of the Inkwells from the Weiss Bros.

With that in mind - some of these are probably indeed Commonwealth prints - no wonder I couldn't find some of these in the IAD listings, they're probably retitles. Plus, I see the Bray "The Tantalizing Fly" labelled as a Fable for some reason

I'd missed Tantalizing, but yes, that's another Bray and not a Fable. You're right—some of those Fables are likely retitled Commonwealths.

Here's a link to an image of the catalog. 

That these were used prints seems to be correct, as it is mentioned that they came from television and were in "excellent used condition." Note how Bobby Bumps' Fourth is listed without being designated as a Fable, unlike the other Bray ones (prepetual motion is simply listed as (Koko).
