Big City, 1937

Cast: Luise Rainer, Spencer Tracy, Charley Grapewin, Janet Beecher

Synopsis: The Big City is an improbable urban melodrama which takes place during a "taxi war" between honest independent cabdrivers and graft-ridden taxi monopolies. Looking for a scapegoat for a recent gangland bombing, crooked city officials deport the foreign wife (Luise Rainer) of rabble-rousing cabbie Spencer Tracy. Desperately seeking a reprieve for his wife, Tracy goes to the mayor, who is in the process of addressing a banquet of retired boxers. The ex-pugilists take Tracy's side, head down to the wharf to pummel the gangsters responsible for the bombing, and rescue Tracy's wife from being shipped back to her homeland. To avoid confusion with a 1948 MGM film of the same name, the 1937 Big City has been retitled Skyscraper Wilderness for television.

Cast: Katharine Hepburn, Kevin McKenzie, Dennis Dimster, Peter Kilman

Synopsis: Elderly, eccentric Miss Pudd (Katharine Hepburn) is the owner of a store she considers an antique shop but most would call a junkyard. She frequently refuses to part with her merchandise because of its sentimental value, but she does agree to sell some items to two small boys, Alby (Kevin McKenzie) and Chris (Dennis Dimster), who are repairing a hot air balloon that belonged to the older boy's grandfather, a stunt man named The Great Sandusky. They plan to take the balloon aloft to celebrate the man's birthday. When the ballon is accidentally launched, untethered, with the two boys and their English sheepdog in the basket, Miss Pudd chases after them in her antique car, and manages to wind up riding the anchor dangling from the bottom of the basket. After she is pulled up, the ballon continues to drift south to San Francisco, where a police helicopter shoots it down. It lands on the stage at an outdoor concert where an orchestra is playing The 1812 Overture.
