Bette Davis in Stranded (1957)

Here, thanks to BDeyes81, is another lost Bette Davis gem from the anthology series Telephone Time. Bette plays a school teacher who must protect 5 children in a blizzard that cuts them off from civilization. It's nice to see her patient, kind, competent characterization of a teacher. These lost gems are so much fun to rediscover. The ending is a bit abrupt - I surmise that there was a tag that has been left off - but it's worth a look even so.
This is one of those productions that's extremely hard to find. You might be able to track it down in a collection of episodes of the series, but it would be difficult to locate. Thanks again to BDeyes81, it's above, for your viewing pleasure.

Obscurity factor: 10 (only available on YouTube).
