It's April 17, 1906, and San Francisco bellhop David Opatoshu (as Gerald Perkins) has visions of an impending disaster. "Earthquake!" Opatoshu shouts, "Run for your lives!" But, no one will believe the recovering alcoholic. They think Mr. Opatoshu has fallen off the wagon, and is suffering from delirium. When hotel waiter Olan Soule (as Harris) is caught siphoning booze from a guest's bottle, he frames Opatoshu for the offense. This gets Opatoshu fired.

More bad befalls Opatoshu, and, on April 18, 1906...

This routine was used for the "Titanic" disaster, and others; it depends upon a common story device, but is nicely-researched, staged, and performed. Opatoshu is very good as the misfortunate bellhop, and Mr. Soule contributes a tasty featured role - the two character actors could have carried a hotel set series on their own.

***** Earthquake (1/12/60) John Newland ~ David Opatoshu, Olan Soule, Harry Ellerbe, Martin Garralaga
