There's a serial killer on the loose in the Grand Canyon and a manhunt to stop him (in the white-knuckle thriller Edge of Eternity, from the director of Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Dirty Harry, and other classics.

Cornel Wilde is the lawman after the killer; Victoria Shaw is is lovely lady friend and helper. The supporting cast includes such favorites as Mickey Shaugnessy (Jailhouse Rock), Dabbs Greer, Edgar Buchanan, and Jack Elam.

We know you're used to small, B&W films on our show, but this one's practically new: filmed in CinemaScope and Technicolor! Way!

(Columbia Pictures / 1959 / Technicolor / 2.35:1 / 80 min.)

Also on the Program

Naturally, with an epic film like this, we have to match it with a plethora of outstanding short subjects, and we think we pulled that off with our usual verve.

Our million-dollar supporting featurettes include a pair of 1939 cartoons, Kristopher Kolumbus, Jr. (Dir. Bob Clampett) and Naughty but Mice (Dir. Charles Jones); a musical visit from Isham Jones & his Orchestra; “Out of the Past”, the seventh suspensful episode of our cliffhanger serial Holt of the Secret Service; and the long-awaited return of Laurel & Hardy to our program in Helpmates (1932, dir. James Parrott), postponed from an earlier date.

Coming Distractions

Don’t touch that dial; in the weeks ahead, we’re presenting such classics as In a Lonely Place with Humphrey Bogart, and One Million Years B.C. with Raquel Welch!

(1959, Dir. Don Siegel)
