Produced for Quest, the ground-breaking CBC anthology series of the early 60s, these two short adaptations of stories by a then-emerging Philip Roth are being screened as a tribute to the late Pulitzer Prize-winning writer. Paul Loves Libby, based on a section of Roth’s first full-length novel Letting Go, stars Martha Henry, Graydon Gould, Larry Mann, Cec Linder, Sammy Sales and Marcia Diamond; even Roth is on hand as the narrator of the story, with the camera following him on location through the streets of New York. Eli, the Fanatic stars Joseph Wiseman in an adaption of a short story taken from Goodbye, Columbus.
