  • The World of Carl Sandburg was a stage presentation of selections from the poetry and prose of Carl Sandburg, chosen and arranged by Norman Corwin, starring Bette Davis. There was a 21-week national tour 1959–1960, co-starring Davis's husband Gary Merrill, towards the end, he was replaced by Barry Sullivan. Afterwards, there was a one-month run at the Henry Miller Theatre in the fall of 1960, co-starring Leif Erickson. Guitar accompaniment and singing was provided by the folk singer Clark Allen. For the opening performances, both of the tour and on Broadway, Sandburg himself spoke after the production. A printed text version, with commentary by Corwin and Sandburg, was then published in 1961.
