In conjunction with the Primary Stages Off-Broadway production of Harrison, TX: Three Plays by Horton Foote—which runs from July 24 to September 15 at Primary Stages at 59E59 Theaters—The Paley Center for Media is screening teleplays by the Oscar, Emmy, and Pulitzer Prize–winning writer, who died in 2009 at the age of 92.


Goodyear Television Playhouse: The Trip to Bountiful

With Lillian Gish, Eva Marie Saint, and Eileen Heckart. An elderly woman seeks transcendence from her unhappiness through one final trip to her hometown—the eponymous Bountiful—before her death. This teleplay was subsequently expanded into a full-length Broadway play (which opened in late 1953, with Gish and Saint reprising their roles) and a 1985 feature film. Dir: Vincent J. Donehue. (1953; NBC; 60 minutes)
