Thirty years After The Event CBS Began Producing A Documentary On Frank Sinatra At The Former Kiel Opera House, Now Operating As The Peabody Opera House. When It Was Noticed That There Were Mysterious Camera Installations With Strategic Onstage Focal Points. Paul Brownstein Executive Producer for CBS Took It Upon Himself And Began An Investigation And Found The Kinescope Of This Lost Show In A Dismas House Secretarial Closet. It Was Subsequently Donated To "The Museum of Television & Radio" By Dismas House, To Avoid A Repeat Of History.
Fast Forwarding History The CBS Production Was Rebroadcast On Nick at Night (in 1998) as part of "The Museum of Television & Radio" Signature Series. The Museum of Television & Radio Became The Museum of Broadcasting, Which Then Became The Paley Center For Media, An American Cultural Institution And Public Repository For Historic Performances.
