Trivia

This live half-hour CBS dramatic anthology series debuted on September 19, 1950, and remained a Tuesday night staple during its entire run. Stories emphasized psychological suspense (mostly resulting in murder), and the directors were then unknowns: Yul Brynner, soon replaced by Sidney Lumet, and then John Frankenheimer. The casts were equally unknown at the time: Cloris Leachman, James Dean, Jack Lemmon, Carroll Baker, Rod Steiger, Paul Newman, Lee Grant, Grace Kelly, and Charlton Heston. The series' opening theme song by jazz guitarist Tony Mottola was included on what is considered the first television soundtrack LP. The series was last telecast on May 31, 1955. See more »
