The Benny Goodman Story is a biographical film starring Steve Allen and Donna Reed, directed by Valentine Davies and released by Universal Studios in 1956. The film is based on the life of famed clarinetist Benny Goodman, who recorded most of the clarinet solos used in the film. The film captures several major moments in Goodman's life but it has been described as less than accurate in details. Goodman's Jewish background is never explicitly mentioned, despite it playing a part in his artistic and personal endeavors for decades. In one scene, where his mother tries to talk him out of a romance with Alice Hammond, played by Donna Reed, whom Goodman eventually married, she says, "Bagels and caviar don't mix."
In the distant future, the Earth has become a dense wasteland after years of battle.
Based of Nathaniel Hawthorn's short story of the same name. Newly married husband leaves for the night only to discover his wife maybe a witch.

Paul Goodman, whose best-selling 'Growing Up Absurd' made him the philosopher of the New Left in the 1960s, was also a brilliant poet, out queer (and family man) in the 1940s, radical pacifist and visionary. His ideas and stubborn integrity helped many find a moral compass in the '60's -- and can do so again today.

The series debuted in 1956 and ran into the early months of 1957, aired on Melbourne station HSV-7 and starred pianist Isador Goodman, with episodes also featuring a guest vocalist. The series is notable as an early attempt at producing an Australian-produced variety series. The live 15-minute show aired at 7:15PM on Tuesdays, was preceded by a 15-minute newscast and followed at 7:30PM by American series Jet Jackson. When the series debuted, television was still fairly new to Australia, with local series production having just started, and locally-produced series often aired on just a single station. In the episode broadcast 1 January 1957, Goodman was annoyed by two flies. He continued playing, doing his best to ignore them and to appear nonchalant. His numbers in the episode included Chopin Waltz, pop standard If I Love You and some boogie-woogie Although kinescope recording existed when the series aired and was possibly seeing at least some use by station HSV-7, it is not known if any such recordings were made of the series, and if so, if any such recordings still exist.
