Sunday, December 17, 1950 THE OBSERVER EDITION OF OUR SUNDAY VISITOR News Section--Page 5A TV Nativity Story 30 Million Due To See Fr. Peyfon Film Hollywood m(NC)-- Major tele- vision networks and individual sta- tions through the country are plan-j ning Chrfstmas telecasts of "The l Joyful Hour," an hour-long film- mktrama telling the story of the Na- tivity. Sponsored by the Family Rosary Crusade, the film was produced by the Rev. Patrick Peyton, C.S.C., director of the crusade, and found- er of the Family Theater radio pro- gram. Hollywood and Broadway Stars will appear in the film. CBS-TV will carry "The Joyful Hour" as a Christmas Eve feature from 3 to 4 p. m. Eastern Standard Time. It is expected that 30 million per- sons will see the film this Christmas, setting a new television audience record. Last spring Father Peyton produced an hour-long Easter drama, "The Triumphant Hour." This Easter film reached a record audience of more than 16 million. ! Featured players in the new film include Pat O'Brien, Hollywood star, with his family; Ruth Hussey, who has starred both on Broadway and in films; Raymond Burr, radio and film actor; Nelson Leigh, par- i trayer of Biblical characters; and Thurston Hall, film character actor. Others are Cecil Cunningham, Broadway actress who has come out of retirement to appear in the Christmas film; Lloyd Corrigan, who plays in the movie version of "Cyrano de Bergerac"; and Rhys Williams, veteran Hollywood actor. "The Joyful Hour" will tell the traditional Christmas story, with scenes of the Annunciation, the Visitation and the Nativity. Frank McDonald directed the production. mlnar Montevideo, Uruguay--(NC)--Protests of Catholic or- ganizations caused the Inter-American Seminar on Elemen- taw Education to reverse its stand against non-government "schools for teacher training.
