As a point of trivia on the actors, both Townes and Overton guest-starred on Star Trek episodes about 15 years later;
Bochner, of course, is well-known for appearing in the famous Twilight Zone episode, To Serve Man

Thanks! Were any of these included in the Studio One box set released shortly after his passing?

The only Heston episode on that one - I purchased the set in late 2008 - is Wuthering Heights; I posted about it on a separate thread here in the TV forum. That's why I find these youtube videos of the episodes intriguing - these seem to be the only way to see this old stuff at the moment - there's nothing on DVD or blu-ray. I just wonder from where the youtubers get them from - maybe some obscure VHS tape or an old TV airing... :-?

I think they capture it from TV airing. The quality of the videos looks much TV-like to me. By the way, what's this one about, I mean the story?

This is a very late response, but I happened across a good summary at this site - http://www.fesfilms.com/public-domain/t ... tudio.html

It reads there: Image
Quote:
A Bolt of Lightning
(11/12/1951) 60 min. Directed by Paul Nickell. Cast: Charlton Heston, Rita Vale, Romney Brent. Dramatization of the life of James Otis, one of America's reluctant Bostonian revolutionaries caught up in the orbit of Sam Adams. A young Charlton Heston plays Otis with characteristic patriotic zeal. Otis was an Advocate for the British governor who turned on the British administration because of their refusal to recognize the sanctity of private property.
Take note, also, that the youtube in the first post has long been eradicated; that's the problem with this rare footage sometimes on youtube - you may not have an unlimited amount of time to watch it... :( https://archive.org/details/StudioOne-ABoltOfLightning
