Celia Adler on Television

The video presented here is a YouTube video of Celia Adler in a small role in the television program, "Naked City," which aired on November 22, 1961. This was in the show's third season and was its eighth episode.
It was entitled, "Show Me the Way to Go Home," and the summary of the episode is thus:

 Enraged at his mother's idea of committing him to Bellevue, sadistic Danny Keeling (Burt Brinckerhoff)
runs from home---in quick pursuit of a young girl. The episode also stars Marie: Lois Nettleton.
Flint: Paul Burke. Elva: Louise Allbritton. Chuck: Douglas Rodgers. Old Woman: Celia Adler. Shag: Carl Reindel.
In this scene the characters Marie and Danny happen upon an old and absent-minded old
woman (Celia) in the city, who is trying to get home to her daughter on Long Island.

The recording is approximately fifteen minutes long....
