The power companies of America commissioned this program in 1954 to celebrate the 75th anniversary of Edison's invention of the lightbulb. It was broadcast on all four networks at the same time, a first in TV history. Ben Hecht was hired for $10,000 to edit the whole, which required a concept and a structure. Stories by John Steinbeck, Irwin Shaw, Arthur Gordon, Max Shulman and Robert Benchley were adapted, shaped, edited. Benchley's contribution was "How to raise a baby; " Shaw contributed "Girls in their summer dresses." The three remaining literary segments are "A kiss for the Lieutenant, " "Chance for adventure, " and George Gobel's monologue, which, on internal evidence, is thought to be the most likely (of the three possibilities) attributable to Steinbeck.
