Publisher: California State University, Northridge Libraries, Santa Susana Press
Publication Date: 1981
Book Condition: Near Fine
Book Description [Northridge, CA]: California State University Northridge Libraries Santa Susana Press, 1981, 1981. 38 p. This print publication of a broadcast (originally titled "Document A/777") hitherto had been published only in Japan. The broadcast first was heard in Europe, Asia, and the Americas over the Mutual Broadcasting System on March 15, 1950, but a few weeks later a recording of it was introduced by Eleanor Roosevelt and was heard by the United Nations Commission on Human Rights, of which Mrs. Roosevelt was chair. The force "greater than the [hyrdrogen] bomb" was the human conscience; the document that was the genesis for the broadcast became the foundation of the worldwide push for recognition and enforcement of human rights. Norman E. Tanin was the director of the broadcast; voices were those of Richard Basehart, Charles Boyer, Lee J. Cobb, Ronald Coleman, Joan Crawford, Maurice Evans, Jose Ferrer, Reginald Gartner, Jean Hersholt, Lena Horne, Marsha Hunt, Alexander Knox, Charles Laughton, Sir Laurence Olivier, Vincent Price, Edward G. Robinson, Robert Ryan, Hilda Vaughn, Emlyn Williams, Robert Young, and Van Heflin. Lyn Murray composed the music and the Prime Minister of New Zealand, Sidney G. Holland, spoke by short-wave radio. Said to be a limited edition of 300, all signed by the author, this is not signed. Taupe linen hard cover, fine; no dust jacket, as issued. Fine quality deckle-edged paper.
