Chip,

I was going to put this topic under "Christmas Movies" but it isn't a movie, but a 1/2 TV show, so I wasn't sure where to put this.

In this episode of "The Adventures of Rin-Tin-Tin and The Christmas Story"  In the Lt. starts singing "Silent Night" and then the men sing along, but near the end of the episode, "Silent Night" is sung again but it is chorus of male and female singers.  I sort of recognize them, but not sure and was wondering if you know who they are?  The songs starts at 23:15, just as the Lt. says "You're too late,, the prophecy has already been fulfilled."

Susan,

It sounds a little like Fred Waring and the Pennsylvanians or The Robert Shaw Chorale, but it is neither. The song is most likely performed by a studio choir.

Thanks Chip,

I was thinking of the same artists, but it wasn't quite right.  The Chorale does have a very moving sound though.  I had watched the episode that I posted twice yesterday and got teary-eyed when "Silent Night" was being sung at the end of the episode.

I thank you for trying.

Thanks Susan! Really enjoyed your post! If I saw that episode as a kid, I don't remember it! It was fun to watch! Sad to say that I doubt Hollywood would broadcast such a message on its shows today! I don't eat Shredded Wheat but do Frosted Mini Wheats count! HAA! Thanks again!

You're both welcome,

I don't remember the show itself very well as I was only a child, but it was on in reruns, so I did see some episodes.  But this one had a "Message about the meaning of Christmas" basically at the end when the Chief says something about the music and that it was the second time he hears such music.  I'm not quoting, I'm paraphrasing.  Then the Lt. explained to the Indians about another birth that took place many years ago who would be a Chief and be a great leader for all people.  Again, I'm paraphrasing, but I think if they were to do a new "The Adventures of Rin-Tin-Tin" today, and they showed a similar episode, the networks would leave that message out or not even do the entire episode.

It was a beautiful story, and only a few words, but it got the meaning across to the Indians, and when they saw their own new Chief as a baby, the Chief laid down his headdress by the baby being their prophecy had been fulfilled.

The chorale group singing "Silent Night" though we don't know whom they are, brought tears of joy to my eyes.  I am very sensitive to music and, even in some Opera's, or just a Classical Music piece, when the music Crescendo's, it brings tears of joy to my eyes and shivers down my body because it is so beautiful and moving. and "Silent Night" basically did the same thing to me.

I'm glad I was able to download the episode, and even more glad because it wasn't interrupted with commercials, but did have the vintage Nabisco Shredded Wheat commercial at the beginning and end of the episode.  I don't know if YouTube will pull it or not any time soon, but there were a lot or the episodes and some of the opening and closing theme song.

I just hope my computer doesn't crash before I have the chance to back it up on a Data CD or DVD or make a single DVD of the episode so I will have it forever and can watch it as many times as I want.

There aren't a lot of TV programs out there today, unless they are on one of the Catholic channels, that tell the meaning of Christmas.  But the Classic TV shows did do this.  Even a Christmas episode of "Father Knows Best" where the Andersons were going to deliver presents to, I think a Mission or to friends, I can't remember, but they got caught in a snowstorm and found a lodge that was boarded up, but there was evidence of someone being in there recently being there was a cigarette or cigar burning in an ashtray, and I think a warm cup of coffee.  It turned out to be a bum who broke into the place, but he had a white beard and his name I believe was Chris, and Cathy was afraid that Santa Claus wouldn't be able to find them.  But they did have a message about Christmas in the show too.
