Notes
The first television special broadcast on all four major networks (CBS, NBC, ABC and Dumont), this rare event collected most of the original cast members to perform live. Trivia: First filmed appearance of Florence Henderson and last filmed appearance of Ezio Pinza. All that remains is this kinescope.
