#GR1: MATINEE THEATER: "TELL TALE HEART"
1956-11-06, WNBC, min.
John Drew Barrymore, John Carradine, John Conte, Phil Gries, John Abbott, Gary Rutkowski

    October 31, 1955 - June 13, 1958

In this classic Edgar Allan Poe story, a man commits a murder, but afterward the victim's beating heart torments the murderer's mind.

This peerless COMPLETE AUDIO AIR CHECK broadcast  of "TELL TALE HEART" was restored by Phil Gries from an original 1/4" reel to reel audio tape discovered and obtained by archivist scholar Gary Rutkowski (www.savetv.tv).

Matinee Theater  was an American anthology series that aired on NBC during the Golden Age of Television, from October 31, 1955,[ to June 27, 1958 (including last two weeks of re-runs).
 
The series was broadcast on NBC television daily from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. Eastern Time, was usually broadcast LIVE and most of the time in color. Its live dramas were presented with minimal sets and costumes. During its three-year series run there were 7000 different performers employed, and hundreds of talented writers and directors who navigated its peerless television run, using 4,200 sets, 210,000 props, and 15,000 costumes.
 
Host for this series was John Conti.

When it was broadcast, Matinee Theater was the most heavily promoted regularly scheduled daytime program on U.S. television, part of the network's effort to "provide quality 'adult' entertainment" in daytime programming. 
 
The series ended in 1958 due to its high budget, much higher than any other daytime program in television. A few of the later episodes were preserved on color film for later rerun syndication under different titles.

Almost all of the 590 original and 81 re-run episodes broadcast have been wiped, destroyed, or are not known to exist any longer in any broadcast form (audio or kinescope, or video).

UCLA Film & TV has 20 different kinescopes in their archive, most not accessible. 

The Library of Congress has only TWO kinescopes in their archive, each on separate negative audio tracks, and separate 16mm Negative Kinescopes. However in 1986 when NBC TV donated 18,600 of their extant kinescopes (1948-1975) to the LOC, their was notated at that time SEVEN separate kinescopes (separate 16mm films and corresponding Negative Optical Sound tracks), for the broadcast dates, Oct. 31, 1955, Nov. 28, 1955, Nov. 29, 1955, Dec. 20, 1955, April 20, 1956, May 3, 1956 & Dec. 10, 1956.

Alexander Scourby, Paul Larson, Peter Brandon, Ward Costello, Alice Hirson, Vivian Nathan, Graham Jarvis, John Marley, Gordon Clarke, Will Hussung, Franklin Cover, Leon B. Stevens, Peter Weiss

An NBC Television SPECIAL:

 A look into German death concentration camps during World War 11. The play is set in a courtroom where witnesses confront the accused who represent real people. Alexander Scourby introduces the play. The cast is comprised of those actors who performed in this play on Broadway (1966).  
Commercials deleted. 


THE INVESTIGATION dramatizes testimonies by Nazi death-camp inmates. Adapted from the Peter Weiss Broadway play.

For years, the machinery of Auschwitz consumed them, millions upon millions. Statistics cannot communicate the horror; adjectives cannot describe the nightmare. It is only through the testimonies of the survivors that we can understand what took place, and that it COULD HAPPEN AGAIN!

The play is set in a courtroom where witnesses confront the accused (represented by real people). The atrocities which occurred less than an quarter of a century ago are related calmly and quietly. With equal reserve, the accused reply, "WE ONLY OBEYED ORDERS." 

NOTE:
This color taped 90 minute SPECIAL PRIME TIME NBC TV broadcast is not extant IN ANY FORM, VIDEO, AUDIO (with the exception of the master 1/4" reel to reel recording archived by Archival Television Audio, Inc.), or TRNASCRIPT. It was not archived by NBC or  archived by the major museums in the USA (Paley Center for Media, UCLA Film & TV Archive, Library of Congress, Museum of Broadcasting). 

Even more sadly noted and unexplained is that there is NO REFERENCE to this broadcast title on the internet, or listed as an IMDb entry.

The one listing of this title can be found in The Library of Congress as a rare theater program Playbill, ONLY (found in the Richard L. Coe Theater Programs Collection).

It is interesting to note some of the following review excerpts from Variety Television Reviews:

“The NBC presentation deserves all the recognition it may get as one of the outstanding programs of the season.”

“If to forget history is to be compelled to relive it, this dramatized presentation could not be aired often enough.”

"THE INVESTIGATION" WAS REPEATED AND AIRED ON SUNDAY APRIL 16, 1967 FROM 3:30 TO 5:00 PM EST. 

“If it were not known to be history, playwright Peter Weiss’ play could be mistaken for the sickest kind of theatre of the Absurd.”
