My name is László Pusztai from Hungary. With a friend from France, Steve
Normandin, we are writing a book about Edith Piaf, which will be released
in October, 2023. (for the 60th anniversary of her death)
We are looking for television shows from the USA where she appeared.
(1947-1959) Actually, we do have a list with those appearances, but we
would like to know if they exist on kinescopes, and where they are stored.
I attach this list below, however it is not complete, as it includes only
the ones we don't know their existence about. (I mean their kinescope).
There were a lot which had been re-broadcasted later, so a kinescope was
made for sure.
We tried with the Library of Congress, Paley Archives as well, but nothing.
Thank you for your help in advance:
