UCLA Festival of Preservation 2013, showcasing preservation projects undertaken by the UCLA Film & Television Archive, kicked off March 1st and will run through March 30th. This is the 25th anniversary of the biennial festival and while the bulk of the screenings are feature films or film shorts there are also a handful of television programs.
In fact, tonight at 7:30PM PST, the premiere episode of CBS Playhouse (“The Final War of Olly Winter,” originally broadcast January 29th, 1967) will be shown. Here‘s the festival description. If you live anywhere near the Billy Wilder Theater in Los Angeles, you’ve still got time to head over and check it out.
Two other screenings will feature television programs. On Saturday, March 16th the festival presents Julie Harris on Television with an installment of NBC’s Goodyear Television Playhouse (“October Story,” originally broadcast October 14th, 1951) and a PBS special “The Belle of Amherst” (originally broadcast December 29th, 1976).
Then, on Saturday, March 23rd, the festival will screen two episodes of ABC Stage 67: “Noon Wine” (originally broadcast November 23rd, 1966), with Jason Robards and Olivia de Havilland, and “The Human Voice” (originally broadcast on May 4th, 1967), with Ingrid Bergman.
