Personal Quote:

The fathers in my neighborhood used to take their children to a nearby bar and grill to see [Captain Video and His Video Rangers (1949)] whenever they had time. The owner would stop serving drinks during that half-hour. And what happened then? A lot of families got television sets, just so father wouldn't miss the Captain's latest adventure in Electronicland.

Trivia:

In Decembe, 1950 he gave up the role of Captain Video in Captain Video and His Video Rangers (1949) because he was unable to keep pace with the daily demands of the program, which conflicted with his career in Broadway theater. See more »
