Jimmy Stewart for the United Jewish Appeal

Jimmy Stewart recorded a 60-seond spot for the 1960 United Jewish Appeal. His, and messages by Jack Benny, Burt Lancaster, Jean Simmons, Robert Ryan and Cornel Wilde, were issued to radio stations on a 7-inch, 45 RPM record. While a copy of the original record has thus far eluded us, we do have a copy of Stewart’s spot thanks to the folks at the Aaron Mintz Radio and TV Archive at the University of Massachusetts. We share it with you here:
