Lost Broadcast Found!

I was surprised today to discover that the original "The Stingiest Man in Town" (1956) starring Basil Rathbone is out on DVD! It's a musical adaptation of "A Christmas Carol" that was originally broadcast live and in color. No complete kinescope (a film record made of a live broadcast by filming the image on a TV monitor) was known to exist, but this year a complete B&W kinescope was found of the live telecast and released on video. I just discovered the sountrack CD a few months ago, and was really disappointed that there was no surviving video of the broadcast to see. Now there is, and it'll be on our doorstep before Christmas! Yay!
