For this week's Tuesday's Overlooked, I'm going way back to December 22, 1960 and an episode of the anthology series The DuPont Show with June Allyson.
This episode is titled "A Silent Panic," and features a rare dramatic turn by comedy legend Harpo Marx. He stars as a deaf-mute performer in a department store's Christmas window display who witnesses a murder. He is unable to communicate what he saw to the police, yet is still a target by the killers.
I know this is heavy subject matter for a Christmas post, but the story is intriguing, and classic anthology series such as this fascinate me from a broadcasting perspective. They were so commonplace back in the day, but seem so alien to modern audiences.
