A Storm in Summer

Produced in 1970 for Hallmark Hall of Fame, Rod Serling’s teleplay Storm in Summer is one of his most little-known works, but probably one of his most poignant. Peter Ustinov stars as an elderly Jewish deli owner living in upstate New York who reluctantly finds himself host to a 10-year-old child from Harlem (N’Gai Dixon). They find something in common as both are mourning over loved ones—a son who died in World War II and a brother fighting in Vietnam. A “superbly understated protest against man’s assorted ill.” (The New York Times). Shown courtesy of Films Around the World, Inc., New York City.
