 Since I'm trying to maintain some semblance of the old format here at Inner Toob, the "As Seen On TV" showcase is our Video Weekend entry.

We offered a portrait of Oscar Homolka as Nikita Kruschev earlier this week to mark the anniversary of the Soviet Premier's visit to America. So today Toobworld Central presents the full 'Playhouse 90' production of "The Plot To Kill Stalin".

And as an added bonus, Cliff Robertson - who sadly passed away last weekend - acted as the host for this production. (And he seemed pretty nervous about it, too.)

Here again is the (mostly) all-star cast for this production:

Melvyn Douglas ... Josef Stalin

Eli Wallach ... Poskrebyshev

E.G. Marshall ... Lavrenti Beria

Oskar Homolka ... Nikita Khrushchev

Thomas Gomez ... Georgi Malenkov

Luther Adler ... Vyacheslav Molotov

Lawrence Dobkin ... Shtemenko

Marian Seldes ... Mme. Molotov

Paul Bryar ... Georgi Zhukhov

Harry Davidson ... Rymim

Bert Freed ... Sokolovsky

Edwin Jerome ... Senior Physician

Paul Lambert ... Rassine

Paul Maxwell ... Recorder

I hope you enjoyed that classic old chestnut....

BCnU, Comrades!
