Liza Minnelli Opens Up About Her Legendary Parents and Her Amazing Longevity

Oscar, Emmy, Tony and Grammy Legend Award winner Liza Minnelli finally joins Robert Osborne's illustrious guest list on Saturday's episode of Private Screenings (10/9c, TCM).

I really want to know who the actress was and what program that was. My sister thinks it was a Playhouse 90 or Hallmark Theatre production. I'd really appreciate any info you could dig up. Thanks.

Cast members included Hans Conried and Louis Jordan, while Thompson, Ethel Barrymore, Monty Wooley and Conrad Hilton played themselves.
