Kinescopes
13 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Just to correct the above poster who said no Kinescope's exists. The museum of broadcasting based in Chicago has 3 episodes and I know of at least one other episode which I have in my personal collection. While NBC considered this series a television novel, I thought the writing was very good and the acting was good as well. It's really ashamed that networks did not have the hindsight to save and archive some of the early live soaps a decision they would later regret. The few that do exist come from Kinescope's and are not the best when it comes to viewing but in most cases are watchable. We can only hope that someday more classic soap material will surface in long forgotten network vaults or affiliate archives.
