#898: A 1960'S RADIO BROADCAST ADDITION: MEMOIRS OF THE MOVIES: HOLLYWOOD AT HOME
1961-12-03, WNYC, 27 min.
Otto Preminger, Sessue Hayakawa, Joan Franklin, Robert Franklin, Ralph Bellamy, Elliot Nugent, Frances Marion, Myrna Loy, Melvyn Douglas, Walter Abel, Dore Schary, Buster Keaton, Albert Hackett, Samuel Spewack, Joseph L. Mankiewicz

Program number 10 of 18 programs. 
Myrna Loy introduces this unique series. Buster Keaton leads a tour through the boulevards and back rooms and closets where the skeletons were kept in the grandest, gaudiest days of Hollywood, USA, when the guest lists and salary checks were closely related. The movie industry's catered affairs are recalled by Melvyn Douglas, Ralph Bellamy, Elliot Nugent, Walter Abel, writers Frances Marion, Albert Hackett, Samuel Spewack and Otto Preminger, producers Joseph L. Mankiewicz and Dore Schary and Japanese star Sessue Hayakawa. Most of the interviews were originally recorded in 1959 by producers Joan and Robert Franklin.   

  NOTE: Robert  C. Franklin (1920-1980), inspired by a 1958 newspaper story he read about Columbia University's POPULAR ARTS ORAL HISTORY PROJECT, approached Dr. Louis Starr, then director of the oral-history collection, with a proposal to interview and tape record, on to 1/4" reel to reel audio tapes, movie people as they passed through New York. The objective would be to document, through personal recollections, the era of the silent era in films, the impact of sound, the triumphs and inequities of the major studios, and life in the glittering film capital...a firsthand account revelation of how silent movies were actually made.  

Robert  and his wife, Joan Franklin went on to record 200 reels of audio tape, recording celebrities mostly in New York City hotel rooms in 1958 and 1959. Transcripts of interviews were made available at the time to students and researchers. 

In 1961 excerpts/highlights from these audio tapes were edited into a 16 part  radio series titled, MEMOIRS OF THE MOVIES. Myrna Loy provided a standard opening. A different celebrity host/hostess was employed to introduce each episode. All of the 90 celebrities interviewed have since passed away with the exception of Joanne Woodward. Two additional episodes were later produced, "Style of the 70's," and "Rush To Reality," both hosted by Ben Gazzara and added, subsequently, to  re-issues of the series which were syndicated in the 1960's and 1970's airing  in New York (WINS), Boston (WBZ), Philadelphia (KYW), Baltimore (WJZ), Fort Wayne (WOWO), Chicago (WIND), San Francisco (KPIX), and Los Angeles (KFWB).  

The original 200 unedited reels of 1/4" audio tape interviews recorded by Joan and Robert Franklin are no longer known to exist. However, audio cassette transfers from these original tapes were donated by Joan Franklin many decades ago to Columbia University's Oral History Research Office where they exist  today.
Confirmed during a 2009 phone conversation with Mary Marshal Clark, archivist at Columbia at that time, who stated that the first on file communication from Robert  Franklin to Columbia University related to his  proposal to do an oral history audio recorded project is dated, July 31, 1958.

Confirmed during a 2009 phone conversation with Mary Marshal Clark, archivist at Columbia at that time, who stated that the first on file communication from Robert  Franklin to Columbia University related to his  proposal to do an oral history audio recorded project is dated, July 31, 1958.

#6329: AMOS 'N' ANDY: RESTITUTION
1961-12-28, CBS, 6 min.
Ernestine Wade, Amanda Randolph, Alvin Childress, Spencer Williams, Tim Moore, Horace Stewart, Johnny Lee

January 12, 1926-November 25, 1960 (radio); June 28, 1951-June 11, 1953 (television). "Amos 'n' Andy," one of the most popular and long-running radio programs of all time, was brought to television in the summer of 1951 by Freeman Gosden & Charles Correll. When the show was cancelled, 65 episodes  had been produced. An additional 13 episodes were then filmed to be added to the syndicated re-run package. These 13 episodes first aired on CBS television beginning on January 4, 1955. Note: "Amos 'n' Andy" used three 35mm cameras to film each episode prior to "I Love Lucy," most often given credit for first using this TV revolutionary three camera approach. "I Love Lucy" premiered on October 15, 1951. Today, 74 of the 78 "Amos 'n' Andy" episodes are available & sold on DVD. However, four episodes remain mysteriously absent: "Andy Goes In Business," "Race Horse," "Sapphire's Mysterious Admirer," and "Restitution." Archival Television Audio recorded one of these missing episodes off the air Dec. 28, 1961 - "Restitution." 
While trying to do a good deed, Kingfish ends up becoming a fugitive from justice. Joined in progress. Only a 6:10-minute excerpt was recorded off the air, but inaccessible to the public for over half a  century.

#896: A 1960'S RADIO BROADCAST ADDITION: MEMOIRS OF THE MOVIES: THE TYCOONS
1961-12-31, WNYC, 27 min.
Joan Franklin, Robert Franklin, Richard Barthelmess, Jack Lemmon, Myrna Loy, David Wark Griffith, Jerry Wald, Dore Schary, Zachary Scott, Samuel Goldwyn, Louis B. Mayer, Basil Rathbone, Ben Hecht, Alexander Korda, Harry Cohen, Reginald Denham, Irving Thalberg

Program number 8 of 18 programs. 
Myrna Loy introduces this unique series. Zachary Scott as host, assembles a composite portrait of the men who produce and direct the great motion picture studios. Some bouquets and a handful of knocks are handed to D.W. Griffith, Samuel Goldwyn, Alexander Korda, Harry Cohen, Irving Thalberg and Louis B. Mayer by Richard Barthlemess, Basil Rathbone, Jerry Wald, director Reginald Denham, Jack Lemmon, Ben Hecht, Dore Schary and Myrna Loy.     

     NOTE: Robert  C. Franklin (1920-1980), inspired by a 1958 newspaper story he read about Columbia University's POPULAR ARTS ORAL HISTORY PROJECT, approached Dr. Louis Starr, then director of the oral-history collection, with a proposal to interview and tape record, on to 1/4" reel to reel audio tapes, movie people as they passed through New York. The objective would be to document, through personal recollections, the era of the silent era in films, the impact of sound, the triumphs and inequities of the major studios, and life in the glittering film capital...a firsthand account revelation of how silent movies were actually made.  

Robert  and his wife, Joan Franklin went on to record 200 reels of audio tape, recording celebrities mostly in New York City hotel rooms in 1958 and 1959. Transcripts of interviews were made available at the time to students and researchers. 

In 1961 excerpts/highlights from these audio tapes were edited into a 16 part  radio series titled, MEMOIRS OF THE MOVIES. Myrna Loy provided a standard opening. A different celebrity host/hostess was employed to introduce each episode. All of the 90 celebrities interviewed have since passed away with the exception of Joanne Woodward. Two additional episodes were later produced, "Style of the 70's," and "Rush To Reality," both hosted by Ben Gazzara and added, subsequently, to  re-issues of the series which were syndicated in the 1960's and 1970's airing  in New York (WINS), Boston (WBZ), Philadelphia (KYW), Baltimore (WJZ), Fort Wayne (WOWO), Chicago (WIND), San Francisco (KPIX), and Los Angeles (KFWB).  

The original 200 unedited reels of 1/4" audio tape interviews recorded by Joan and Robert Franklin are no longer known to exist.

#129A: HERE'S HOLLYWOOD
1962-01-02, WNBC, 20 min.
Art Linkletter, Jack Linkletter, Diane Linkletter, Lois Linkletter, Barbara Linkletter, Robert Linkletter

September 26, 1960 - December 28, 1962 

Jack Linkletter interviews his father Art Linkletter from the home Jack grew up. Also on hand are his brother, Robert, and sister Diane, along with Jack's wife Barbara and his mom, Lois. Art replays a 1953 audio tape he recorded of Jack auditioning as an announcer, prior to his first TV appearance at the age of 16. Many personal anecdotes are exchanged.

Note: The audio quality has variations in quality. However, very discernible and a valued addition to the Here's Hollywood surviving broadcasts in the ATA archive. 

Here's Hollywood aired as a half-hour interview program, weekday afternoons on NBC at 4:30pm. On October 2, 1961 the show was reduced five minutes giving way to a live news broadcast with Sander Vanocur which aired at 4:55pm. 

Here's Hollywood  was the leading daytime show for two years. It was the first TV broadcast of its kind, using two mobile vans equipped with 2" video tape equipment which traveled to the homes of celebrities...two locations each day, one star in the morning and one in the afternoon. Most of the interviews aired were ten minutes in length. Two different interviews comprised the full length of the half hour program. Occasionally, one subject would be interviewed for the complete program. Occasionally programs were produced outside of the United States...Hawaii, Germany, France. Five color broadcasts were attempted and then the concept abandoned, due to the complexity of 2" quadruplex video tape at the time.

Dean Miller conducted interviews from September 26, 1960 to September 29, 1961. He was replaced by Jack Linkletter who conducted interviews from October 2, 1961 to December 28, 1962. Joanne Jordan conducted interviews from September 26, 1960 to June 9, 1961. She was replaced by Helen O'Oconnell who conducted interviews from June 13, 1961 to December 28, 1962.

Note: Only a handful of the 1,100 different interviews survive. Most were erased, discarded, misplaced. NBC Archives have only two surviving kinescopes, one with Joe E. Brown (12-2-61), and one with Linda Darnell (12-4-61). UCLA Film & TV Archive has 46 different subject interview kinescopes on separate negative film and separate optical film tracks. 

Archival Television Audio has 74 broadcasts on audio tape, originally recorded by Phil Gries at the time the broadcasts first aired.

Mankiewicz, George Seaton and writers, Marc Connelly, Anita Loos, Ben Hecht, Leo Rosten and Henry Myers. Most of the interviews were originally recorded in 1959 by producers Joan and Robert Franklin.
