  • Episode Description
  • 1) The first segment "The Horn Blows at Midnight" is an adaptation of the 1945 film version also starring Jack Benny. It's the story of an angel who is instructed to come down to Earth, blow his horn at midnight and destroy this wicked world. But upon arriving on Earth, angel Jack finds it isn't such a bad place after all and is loath to carry out his orders. 2) The second segment "Introduction to William Shakespeare" Dr. Frank Baxter whose telecourse on Shakespeare widened his fame, provides an excellent brief lecture on the Shakespearean theater with a model of the Globe Playhouse and verbal exchanges with host Alistair Cooke. 3) The third segment "The California Condor" Excerpts from a United Artists film, "Song of the Land" shot in California by Edward Harrison over a period of four summers show the California Condor, one of the most primitive birds known. Less than 40 existed in 1953.moreless
