This film is one of over 200 titles in the list of independent feature films made available for television presentation by Advance Television Pictures announced in Motion Picture Herald 4 April 1942. At this time, television broadcasting was in its infancy, almost totally curtailed by the advent of World War II, and would not continue to develop until 1945-46. Because of poor documentation (feature films were often not identified by title in conventional sources) no record has yet been found of its initial television broadcast; its earliest documented telecasts took place in Cincinnati Friday 2 September 1949 on WCPO (Channel 7) and in New York City Wednesday 23 August 1950 on WOR-TV (Channel 9).
A cultish pyramid scheme and a twisted series of murders hit the small screen along with a powerful new documentary about our attachment to even smaller screens.
