SUNSET BOULEVARD (1956) Starring Mary Astor, Darren McGavin, Gloria DeHaven and John Griggs. Introduced by Robert Montgomery. This ultra-rare TV adaptation of the famous Hollywood fable was originally aired live as part of the "Robert Montgomery Presents" anthology series on NBC. Aging former silent movie queen, Norma Desmond, is a conniving, needy woman who ensnares a young screenwriter (Joe Gillis - played by McGavin) and keeps him a virtual prisoner in her creepy old Hollywood mansion. Unfortunately, Norma is also very jealous and on the verge of madness. When Gillis finally asserts his independence, the results are deadly. This rendition is a true find. The acting is superb and it compares very favorably with Billy Wilder's classic big screen version of 1950.
Digitally mastered from an original 16mm Kinescope
MASTERS IN ART AND CLAY (1964) Starring John Griggs and Jack Gilford. John Griggs (who portrays Sheldrake in our "Sunset Boulevard", but will be best remembered as Ralph Kramden's boss on "The Honemooners") takes us on a color tour of England's Spode china works. We learn how Spode fine China and dinnerware have been made since the company was founded in 1767.
