Trivia

This live half-hour CBS dramatic anthology series debuted on 19 September 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. This would have been a show worth watching. The series' opening theme song by jazz guitarist Tony Mottola was included on what is considered the first TV soundtrack LP. The series was last telecast on 31 May 1955. See more »

Yul Brynner and Roald Dahl
24 September 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

The 34 year old Roald Dahl was enlisted to bring to the screen his short story, 'A Dip in the Pool', in this series which was directed by Yul Brynner before he shot to fame as an actor in 'The King and I'. The short story has a natural home in the episodic serial like this.
