35-07-04 What to Watch?

STARRING: ART VAN HARVEY, BERNARDINE FLYNN  AND BILL IDELSON

It's Independence Day. Sade wants to watch a film at the Bijou: Annabel Ainsworth is starring in Madness Beneath the Moon.

Vic has other plans; he wants to take in a baseball game between workers of the Chicago Alton railroad.

Sade hates baseball. Vic doesn't really enjoy motion pictures.  He's especially not fond of Miss Ainsworth and has many a derogatory thing to say about her and her suspect acting abilities ("I wouldn't walk across the street to see her do a flip-flop").

The couple (and Rush) argue the merits of each but are soon sidetracked as Hank Gutstop collapses from heat stroke and that's what they watch instead.

The title is one I have given to the episode purely for identification purposes.

[The gist of this episode is revealed in the book,Vic and Sade on the Radio: A Cultural History of Paul Rhymer's Daytime Series]
