The Carnovskys recall the original production of Kurt Weill and Paul Green's Johnny Johnson on Broadway in 1936. They discuss the preparations for the show, the reasons it was not a success, and the difficulties of the Group Theatre at that time, with particular reference to Cheryl Crawford, Lee Strasberg, and Clifford Odets. They detail the preparations the Group made during the summer of 1936, and Weill's role in coaching them. They also recount what it was like to see The eternal road, which ran on Broadway in the first months of 1937. Finally, they discuss the special features of Weill's song style and Lotte Lenya's mastery of them

Wilson's death, under company names Wilson Brothers or G.W. Wilson & Co.; the overwhelming majority simply bear as publishing statement: "G.W.W." One group of lantern slides are reproductions of images acquired from Thompson & Co. of Liverpool; other photographers whose work is represented in the lantern slide format include: Eadweard Muybridge, Lyddell Sawyer, and Frank M. Sutcliffe. A view of the fire following the San Francisco earthquake of 1906, attributed to A.L. Murat, is also a part of one of the lantern slide groups
