THE JUDY CANOVA SHOW & THE QUIZ KIDS
“The Judy Canova Show” was one of those radio sitcoms with a stage and radio star playing a heightened version of herself living in Hollywood hoping to made good. In this episode, Judy is eager to become the New Year’s Rose Queen. That leads to dream sequence, featuring Mel Blanc handling multiple voices, with Judy in a Queen of the Klondike pageant. Then “The Quiz Kids” amaze with their general breath of knowledge and math skills. This episode includes an interview with a Kid who actually has gone to Hollywood and made good. Smylla Brind had appeared on the show a number of times, but, as we hear, she’s changed her name to Vanessa Brown and is now an actress under contract to 20th Century Fox.
