This film's earliest documented telecasts took place in Indianapolis Monday 29 July 1957 on WFBM (Channel 6), in Tucson Friday 9 August 1957 on KGUN (Channel 9), and in Portland, Oregon 27 August 1957 on KOIN (Channel 6). For the past 60 years, it's since been a frequent flyer, first on local television, then on cable, and has now found what is apparently its permanent home on Turner Classic Movies. See more

Listen three-balls, I want five thousand dollars and I want it in a hurry. It's worth twenty thousand. And don't give me any backtalk.
