I could not be in San Diego for the Dodger game but I am going to this event:
The Baseball Reliquary & Burbank library Present Philco Television playhouse: 0 for 37 (1953)
Introduced by Dan Einstein, Television Archivist, UCLA Film & television Archive
Screening: Thursday, September 27, 7:00 p.m.
Location: Burbank Central Library
Address: 110 N. Glenoaks Blvd, Burbank, CA
From Terry Cannon:
Reliquarians young and old will enjoy the anniversary screening of “0 for 37” this Thursday, September 27 at 7:00 p.m. at the Burbank Central Library. “0 for 37” was originally aired 59 years ago, broadcast live on September 27, 1953 on the legendary Philco Television Playhouse. Starring James Broderick and Eva Marie Saint, “0 for 37” is the story of a recently married major leaguer, considered one of the best players in the game, who goes through a prolonged batting slump, caused in large part by his worries about the new house his wife has bought. My, have times changed! The screening will be introduced by the one and only Dan Einstein, Television Archivist at the UCLA Film & Television Archive, who has graciously loaned the kinescope that will be shown. Incidentally, Thursday is also the closing night for the Baseball Reliquary’s exhibition, “Bad Moon Rising: Baseball and the Summer of ’68,” so drop by early and catch the display if you have not already done so. See you on Thursday!
