Directed by Richard Jernigan. Starring Ed Lowry (Socrates) and Austin Jernigan (Adeimantus). Between 1949 and 1953, brothers Tex and Buster Bedell filmed each chapter of Plato's Republic for viewing by high school and college students. The use of color film in later chapters bankrupted their company, the Education Television Ranch. After going unpaid for two months editor Sparky Waddells scammed the company by placing his personal address on testing packets, a dubious money-making scheme developed by the Bedell brothers to capture additional revenue from colleges and school districts. As a final act of vengeance, Mr. Waddells began shipping "re-edited" versions of each film, of which this is the only surviving example.
