OVERLOOKED TELEVISION: TWO SHARP KNIVES

This episode of Studio One from November 14, 1949, comes from a Dashiell Hammett story:

Apropos of nothing, the sponsorship by Westinghouse reminded me of a joke that I loved when I was in the fifth grade:

A man goes to get some milk.  He opens the refrigerator door and sees a squirrel sleeping on one of the shelves.  Waking up the squirrel, he says, "What are you doing in my refrigerator?"  The squirrel looks at him and questions back, "This is a Westinghouse, isn't it?"  "Why, yes, it is."  "Well," says the squirrel, "I'm westing!"

Just goes to show what a dork I was in the fifth grade. 


UPDATE:  Great minds think alike.  Elizabth Foxwell also posted this show today, but her blog is about a zillion times better tha mine:
