      • Variety (10/25/1950) reports that Cantor is complaining that NBC didn't provide him with a kinescope of the rehearsal of his second show to work out the bugs beforehand as they did on his first appearance.  Cantor says it's required in his contract. NBC says it isn't, but would split the $6000 cost (their estimate) with him.
