Ghost Towns of the West (documentary)

    (Syndicated, 1951 - 1952)

    [a 13-part series of 15-minute short subjects syndicated in 
     the early days of TV, produced by Simmel-Merservey Productions]

Theme: "The Hoover Dam Story (M & E)"

    [Writer credit by contributor David Schecter, who verified
     in conversations with Irving Gertz, that music from his score
     to a documentary on the construction of Hoover Dam called "The
     Hoover Dam Story", was recycled to score this series of shorts.
     A similar thing happened with Gertz' score to the documentary "The
     Two-Dollar Bettor" when his "Betting Montage" cue wound up being used
     as the Main Title Theme for "The Millionaire" (which see.)]
