Description by OLDIES.com:
HARVEST: A modest farming family prepare for their last Thanksgiving feast together. The youngest, Paul, is moving soon to the big city like his older brothers before him. His parents fear their usefulness has come to an end... while Paul is faced with doubts over leaving all he's ever known behind. Harvest is one of the earliest filmed appearances of the young James Dean, then a struggling actor in New York City. Silent screen star Dorothy Gish plays the matriarch of the family.
THE SHEFFIELD STORY: David Niven is a British spy masquerading as a Nazi general in WWII. He is successful relaying top secrets to the Allies until a romance with a German baroness puts him in danger of being discovered. As he mentions at the end of the broadcast, Niven starred in this episode immediately before filming Otto Preminger's The Moon is Blue (1953) with William Holden.
