#8: PROJECT 20: MEET MR. LINCOLN
1960-02-11, WNBC, 29 min.
Thomas Mitchell, Alexander Scourby, Robert Russell Bennett, Richard Hanser, Donald B. Hyatt, Abraham Lincoln

September 13, 1954 - May 27, 1970

A portrait of Abraham Lincoln on the 150th anniversary of his birth. This program concentrates on the final four years of Lincoln's life and his presidency. Thomas Mitchell introduces the program, and does one commercial for the sponsor, (The Lincoln Life Insurance Company). This presentation was a repeat of its premiere airing one year before, February 11, 1959. Alexander Scourby narrates from Richard Hanser's script, quoting mostly in the words of Abraham Lincoln. Robert Russell Bennett's score incorporates songs of the time. Donald B. Hyatt produced and directed. This broadcast received many outstanding awards but was never aired again. 

For this extraordinary documentary producer Donald B. Hyatt developed the "stills-in-motion" technique  which involved the animation of thousands of still photographs and non filmed visual materials. However, just listening to the narrative sound track by Alexander  Scourby, the incredible score, using music of the times, orchestrated by Robert Russell Bennett, coupled with the narrative written by Richard Hanser, including  salient quotations expressed by President Abraham Lincoln, makes for an exhilarating interpretation, insight and appreciation of Lincoln's presidency, and what he endured  during his administration during the Civil War (1861-1865). 

In 1954 Henry Solomon, along with Donald B. Hyatt, Issac Kleinerman, Richard Hanser, and Robert Russell Bennett, began production on a group of compilation documentaries they named PROJECT 20. Salomon and company periodically produced special broadcasts for NBC recreating the lives, events, periods, and trends of the 1900's through an effective marriage of archival news film and still photos, long before contemporary Ken Burns picked up the baton to do similar approach documentaries  broadcast on PBS beginning in the 1980's. 

There were 33 produced Project 20 NBC Specials in the series. Eleven of them were enhanced with narration provided by the mellifluous Alexander Scourby. The series became universally recognized as one of  American television's most enduring and honored series, winning hundreds of national and international awards for broadcasts, including two prime time Emmy Awards.

Joe Franklin, Jerome Courtland

September 21, 1952   -  September 14, 1962 (ABC TV)
October 1, 1962  - 1993 (WOR TV)

Guest Jerome Courtland plugs his new WABC syndicated series "The Vikings."
NOTE: This live TV show would leave the air for 15 minutes because of technical problems and would resume programming where it left off, signing off the air 15 minutes later at 11:15am instead of its normal sign off time of 11:00am. It would pre-empt the regularly scheduled program "Romance of Life." The astonishing flexibility of the number three network, ABC, in 1960 is observed. Joe Franklin, an important daytime personality, is allowed to accommodate his sponsor Canada Dry and extends the program for their live television testimonials. Franklin also plugs his other sponsors My-T-Fine desert and does a complete commercial for Vermont Maid Syrup.    

                             The Joe Franklin Show
September 21, 1952   -  September 14, 1962 (ABC TV)
October 1, 1962  - 1993 (WOR TV)

This show, which ran on television for 40 consecutive years, is in The Guinness Book of World Records as the longest running talk show. There truly will never will be another program quite like it. Its host Joe Franklin was in many ways the pioneer of the modern TV Talk Show format.

Joe Franklin is one of Television and Radio's most durable and beloved personalities ever, and is truly a New York legend. In addition, he is considered one of the world's leading authorities on "Nostalgia". Through the course of The Joe Franklin Show he has interviewed an astonishing 300,000+ guests!

 Woody Allen, Dustin Hoffman, Barbara Streisand, Bill Cosby, and Liza Minnelli are among the world's great talents who got their first exposure on The Joe Franklin Show.

There was also a great uniqueness about the program. On any given night you might find a world renown artist sitting next to a balloon folder from New Jersey! Joe Franklin's lovable and funny persona even prompted comedian Billy Crystal to imitate him on NBC's "Saturday Night Live" for four years.

NOTE: During the final  four years of his life, Phil Gries, founder and owner of Archival Television Audio, Inc. got to visit numerous times with Joe, and give him TV Audio Air Checks from the ATA collection some of which he played on the air. I would have holiday dinners with him and his archivist Rick Russo, who together produced a special CD in 2013 with Joe's approval containing 40 different broadcasts and interviews Joe conducted on ABC and WOR television (1960-1965) among them, AL KELLY, ART LINKLETTER, THOMAS GOMEZ, ARTHUR KENNEDY, MORTY GUNTY, CHIEF WILLIAM RED FOX, CHILL WILLS, CORNEL WILDE, JEAN WALLACE, DAGMAR, DAN O'HERLIHY, DAVID SUSSKIND, FRANK FOUNTAINE, HERMIONE GINGLOLD, RAMON NAVARRO, JACKIE MASON, JAMES WHITMORE, JEROME COURTLAND, JIM BACKUS, JOAN BENNY, JOE PASTERNAK, JOHNNY MACK BROWN, JANE PICKENS, JOHNNY MARKS, MYRNA LOY, JOHN HOUSEMAN, OLIVIA DE HAVILLAND, OTTO PREMINGER, RICHARD GRIFFITHY, ROBERT RYAN, SAMMY SPEAR, SIR CEDRIC HARDWICKE, SYLVIA SIDNEY, JOI LANDSING, TOM BOSLEY , MINTA DURFEE FATTY ARBUCKLE, MRS. AL ST. JOHN, JUNE PRICE PEARCE, VINCENT PRICE, CHARLES GOREN, JEAN SHEPHERD MARTY INGELS,  ART MIX, ELIA KAZAN audio taped off the air by Phil Gries (1960-1965).       
In the liner notes of this 11 hour & 36 minute CD Joe Franklin states, "The Golden Age of Television is revived via the magic of Rick Russo and Phil Gries'  creativity. The pioneering days of my TV program...indeed, my personal holy grail is hereby frozen in time."

Jack Paar returns to the TONIGHT SHOW after his mid-February walk-out and subsequent vacation in Hong Kong. 

 Hugh Downs states that "tonight's show will go down in broadcast history." During the opening 11:15 to 11:30pm segment Downs states that in fairness to the country Jack will appear when the show is seen by the entire country, Nationally by all of the affiliate stations, at 11:30pm.
 
Following a Blue Cheer laundry detergent commercial, Hugh Downs announces the 11:30pm opening of the Jack Paar Tonight Show and counts down, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, and introduces Jack Paar. Jack's first words are, "As I was saying before I was interrupted." Paar praises Hugh Downs for his loyalty. He then has some nasty words to say about columnist Walter Winchell who he calls "that silly old man." 

Paar also takes up where he left off, criticizing Dorothy Kilgallen calling her someone who reminds him of a puppet. "When she speaks she never seems to move her lips."

Jack tells his audience that he believes the Hearst press is rigged, as per example, his good friend Jim Bishop, columnist for the Hearst Press, had his column about Paar, today, suppressed.  

Paar reminisces about his "water closet" joke that created great controversy that led Jack to walk off the air. He tells of his trip to Japan...many stories and anecdotes. 

NOTE: This television audio air check segment of Jack Paar returning to the Tonight Show is not known to exist in any VIDEO format other than a minute of his appearance at the beginning of his entrance.

Dear Phil,

My apologies for the long delay in responding to your kindness in sending me the exciting television audio air check of "Reading Out Loud" the TV program where Jack read the Gettysburg Address. The Jackie Robinson Foundation has moved and we are still locating material sent to us as we reorganize the archives. 

I listened to the tape with ABSOLUE AMAZEMENT and DELIGHT. Sharon and I remember vividly the family trip to Washington, and we have one photo taken on that occasion. Unfortunately, I do not have any memory of the recording session. 

It is thrilling for us to hear Jackie's reading of this profound speech, and we shall cherish and preserve it in our archives. Most importantly, we will share it with our visitors to the Jackie Robinson Museum now being designed. 

Phil, I am deeply grateful to you for this historic gift, and we will appropriately attribute it's preservation to you. 

Sincerely,

Rachel Robinson

#859D: ZACHERLEY AT 12:00
1960-05-06, WOR, 30 min.
John Zacherley

October 9, 1959 - December 25, 1959 &
April 8, 1960 - July 1, 1960

"Club Budapest."
The Summary and details of this broadcast needs to be monitored.

John Zacherley, who became famous introducing horror films,and satirizing them on SHOCK THEATER / ZACHERLEY AT LARGE, on WABC TV, found a new home at WOR TV in October of 1959 and hosted "Zacherley at 12:00," a series initially lasting a little more  than two months, totaling 12 broadcasts from October 9 - December 25, 1959, and then returning for another 13 broadcasts in the Spring of 1960.

These WOR TV channel 9 ninety minute programs were presented on Friday Nights at Midnight, re-run (video tape) Saturday at noon, and re-run again, Saturday Night at Midnight, thru November 28, 1959.  

At his new WOR Ch. 9 berth, Zacherley remained a suave ghoulish monster from Cloud Transylvania, adding offbeat crazy humor to old "B" films which were edited to 60 minutes running time. The remaining 30 minutes of broadcast time was pure Zacherley. 

 

No video tapes and only a handful of excerpt kinescope clips from this WOR TV series of 25 programs survive (total of 12 & 1/2 hours of Zacherley 30 minute sketches broadcast), making this audio presentation a very rare retrospective, as well as  other air checks, from this series, preserved in the Archival Television Audio collection.
