ANOTHER VERSION OF DICKENS’ CLASSIC

Front Standard. A Christmas Carol [Blu-ray] [1951].

Bosley Crowther of The New York Times posted a favorable notice,
writing that producer Brian Desmond Hurst “has not only hewed to
the line of Dickens’ classic fable of a spiritual regeneration on
Christmas Eve, but he has got some arresting recreations of the
story’s familiar characters,” adding, “The visions of Scrooge’s life
story are glimpses into depressing realms, and the aspects of
poverty and ignorance in 19th century England are made plain.

NOTE: THIS IS A GREAT FILM AS WELL! BLOGGER BOB

FIRST EPISODE AIRED ON THIS DAY IN 1960

On October 7, 1960, the first episode of the one-hour television
drama “Route 66” airs on CBS. The program had a simple premise:
It followed two young men, Buz Murdock (George Maharis) and
Tod Stiles (Martin Milner), as they drove across the country in
an inherited Corvette (Chevrolet was one of the show’s sponsors),

doing odd jobs and looking for adventure. According to the show’s
creator and writer, Stirling Silliphant (best known for his acclaimed
“Naked City,” an earlier TV series), Buz and Tod were really on a

journey in search of themselves.

“Route 66″was different from every other show on television. For
one thing, it was shot on location all over the U.S. instead of in a
studio. By the time its run was up in 1964, the show’s cast and
crew had traveled from
Maine to Florida and from Los Angeles
to Toronto: In all, they taped 116 episodes in 25 states.
