Trivia

This show was thought to be lost for many years, as it was done live and in color on NBC the day after Thanksgiving in 1959. NBC made a kinescope of the program for broadcasting the show on the West Coast, as was customary at the time. The copy was in a large collection of kinescopes donated by NBC to the Library of Congress in 1986 and recently unearthed by Richard Finegan, who reported his quest and experiences in the December 2005 issue of "Classic Images". A special screening of the show was held at the Library of Congress in December 2005 with Susan Gordon, who played Susan Walker in the program, attending. She was able to watch her performance for the first time. See more »
