The Prince and the Pauper: 3 - The Beggars
by Mark Twain.
Adapted by Rhoda Power.
Prince Edward, son of Henry VIII, and Tom Canty, the beggar are as alike as two peas. For fun, the prince changes clothing with Tom, and the two boys are mistaken for each other. The prince is chased from the palace and seized by John Canty, Tom's father.
Meanwhile Henry VIII dies, and Tom is hailed as King. Everyone thinks he has gone mad because he seems unable to remember his princely duties. John Canty thinks the same of Edward.
Tom rather enjoys the change, but Edward has a miserable time till a certain Miles Hendon, who thinks him a poor little mad beggar, befriends him and takes him to an inn. Miles goes out for a few minutes, leaving Edward asleep. He returns to find the bed empty. Where is Edward?

A new American comedy by Jack Perry.
[Starring] Brian Reece, Barbara Murray and Harriette JohnsThe action takes place in the New York apartment of Gary and Sheila Madison.
Gary Madison, one of the roving kind by nature and a foreign correspondent by profession, has spent most of the six years of his marriage travelling the globe in pursuit of 'copy' while his wife, Sheila, has remained impatiently at home in New York. He is due back, as the play opens, from a year or so in the Orient-a period during which Sheila, exposed to the loneliness and temptations of big-city life, has allowed her low spirits to sabotage her usual high fidelity. Gary walks in breezily to ignite an explosive domestic situation and a brash, wise-cracking comedy of American manners. - Kenneth A. Hurren Tonight at 8.15

This film tells of the struggle in southern Italy against illiteracy and ignorance. It depicts day-today life in a village in the region to the south of Eboli, beyond which, according to the old Italian saying, Christ did not go.
