Rare Film of Ronald Reagan James Dean (Video)
A rare footage from a TV episode featuring Ronald Reagan and James Dean surfaced this morning.
"The Dark, Dark Hours," originally aired Dec. 12, 1954 during an episode of General Electric Theater. The footage was unearthed by Wayne Federman, a writer for NBC's Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and published in the Atlantic Monthly.
The Atlantic's John Meroney writes:
No one has seen this episode in the decades since; the kinescope has been locked away, until now. My friend Wayne Federman, a writer for NBC's Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, unearthed the broadcast, condensing it from its original 23 minutes (without commercials) into the six-minute version you see below. (Federman is planning a retrospective of Reagan's television career for next year's Reagan centennial.)
In the clip, Reagan is a doctor, forced to defend his home and family from Dean, a teenage criminal seeking medical treatment for an injured friend.
