Ralph Edwards' 'This Is Your Life' series is revisited

February 27, 2010 | 10:44 am

The Times' Susan King reports on plans to show four memorable episodes of the television series "This Is Your Life" Sunday at the Hammer Museum's Billy Wilder Theater.

Ralph Edwards, series creator and host, would surprise the people known and unknown with a look back at their lives. Edwards died in 2005 and last year Ralph Edwards Productions donated hundreds of episodes and other material to the UCLA Film and Television Archive.

On Sunday, episodes featuring comedians Harold Lloyd, Lou Costello, George Burns and Buster Keaton will be shown.

You can find King's story here.
