Though known primarily for his stage efforts, and secondarily for his occasional film work, playwright-actor-composer Noel Coward made his share of television appearances. New York's Museum of Television and Film will screen many of these in a series called "Mad About the Boy: Noel Coward on Television," running Sept. 17 through Oct. 21. Among the programs to be shown -- mostly dating from the golden age of live television -- are "Ford Star Jubilee: Together with Music" (1955), "Ford Star Jubilee: Blithe Spirit" (1956), "Producers Showcase: Tonight at 8:30" (1954), "Ford Star Jubilee: This Happy Breed" (1956), "Camera Three: Mad About the Boy -- A Celebration" (1976), and guest shots on "The Dick Cavett Show," "What's My Line?" and "Small World."
The Museum of Television and Radio is located at 25 W. 52nd Street. For more information call (212) 621-6800, or check their web site at http://www.mtr.org.
