Trivia

On June 4, 1954, the name was changed to "Campbell Summer Soundstage" and the format reverted to film; many of the shows were episodes that had been shown on The Ford Television Theatre (1952). These broadcasts continued until September 1954 on NBC on Friday nights between 9:30 and 10:00 PM Eastern Time until the show was replaced by the sitcom Dear Phoebe (1954). See more »
