MORE REAL LIFE
486 YOU ASKED FOR IT (1951)
Art Baker's the host in these four live kinescopes of the popular
show that answers viewer requests, complete with original commercials.
This is the original version of the show, and since it's live, mistakes
and mishaps run rampant!
1. A reunion of the "Our Gang" kids, now all grown up; Hawaiian cowboys; an appearance by those famous old birds, Bill and Coo.
2. Movie special effects; a live octopus!
3. Wrestling chimpanzees; card sharks at work.
4. A "reverse" escape artist; live extraction of venom from snakes (eww)!

433 STAR-GAZING (1959/1931)
1. THE 11TH ANNUAL EMMY AWARDS (5/6/59). Live from New York, Hollywood,
and Washington, D.C., here's a unique presentation of TV honoring
its own when it was barely over a decade old. All the big stars of
the era are on hand as presenters: Raymond Burr, Donna Reed, Robert
Young, Art Carney, Dinah Shore, Phil Silvers, Jack Benny, Walter
Brennan, Ann Sothern, Mickey Rooney, and more. The program also
features some clips of American programs dubbed into foreign
languages. This one's a real treat!
2. THE STOLEN JOOLS (1931). A short subject sponsored by Chesterfield
cigarettes. There are more screen stars in this film than there are
in the sky! The plot involves a diamond heist, and everyone's a
suspect: Laurel and Hardy, Our Gang, Buster Keaton, Edward G.
Robinson, Hedda Hopper, Joan Crawford, Gary Cooper, Joe E. Brown,
Maurice Chevalier, Barbara Stanwyck, and many more!
