"We talk about love so much of the time, and yet we don't know what it means."

Anthology Of Love (Part 1) is the name of a program Joe Frank produced as part of the series In The Dark. It was originally broadcast in 1994.


Singing accompanied by a ukulele. A man offers vague cliches about love in between acted vignettes in which he and a woman named Doreen engage in various romantic adventures and she sacrifices himself for his benefit. The Pauper's day parade, in which the poor are force to make floats and balloons celebrating their condition: the starving man, bag lady, beggar, and squeegee man balloons; the tenement float. Doreen lets him stand on her back, falls and is paralyzed. During a walk in the woods, Doreen lies down in a river so he can cross without getting his shoes wet. They move a piano, and she is crushed. Trapped in a lifeboat, she feeds him by carving her own flesh.
