Shep Packs Lowe's For Film Preview
Airdate: Wednesday - January 16, 1957

Last Update: 01-22-2012

Show Description
Last Tuesday evening Jean Shepherd, WOR's "conversationalist," sponsored one of the most interesting movie previews on record. An enthusiastic overflow crowd of more than 1600 jammed Lowe's Sheridan Theatre, 12th Street, at midnight, to see a special screening of "Edge of the City," an unusual new movie to be released in late January. Following the movie, Shepherd MC'd a vigorous exchange of questions and answers between the audience and the creators of the picture - producer David Susskind, director Martin Ritt, writer Martin Alan Aurthur, and actors John Cassavettes and Jack Warden. About 80 percent of the audience remained in their seats for the entire discussion, which was broadcast live over WOR between 2 and 3 in the morning. Shepherd, who is a regular voice columnist, discusses his personal reactions to this event in his piece this week on page 4.
