Storyline

When The Alcoa Hour dramatic anthology series moved from Sunday night to Monday, both the name and the format were changed. Instead of having a completely different cast for each episode, the series now used a set group of actors who would appear repeatedly throughout the series in various roles. While most of the productions were serious dramas, a few comedies were also included in the mix. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Predictable fare, well made with starry cast
9 December 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Also known as 'Turn of Fate', this series presents mysteries and stories with a twist - a kind of 1950s Tales of the Unexpected. With stars such as David Niven, Jane Powell, and Robert Ryan, the quality of the acting is high - the stories somewhat easy to work out, but entertaining nonetheless.

The prints currently airing on TV are sharp and clear so it's likely some restoration has been done; the quality of this series also proves that the 1950s were indeed a golden age for American television, when stage and movie stars alike were embracing the medium.

Turn of Fate is well worth half an hour of anyone's time and the stories and situations are varied enough for several episodes to be watched without the viewer getting bored.
