TV Ship News Reporter - 1950

Jack Mangan, who runs an ABC television show, Ship News Reporter, was aboard the S.S. Uruguay in October with his sound camera to shoot pictures and interview celebrities sailing on the trip.  He cornered Dr. Hernandes Tavares de Sa, noted Brasilian writer, on deck with his family and had a interesting chat that was shown on the TV show later that evening.  Another interviewee was famed novelist Taylor Caldwell.
