Boone's attempt at repertory-video-- unique as far as I know
21 May 2000 | by (Amherst, MA) – See all my reviews

1963-64 featured two unique bits of prime-time series programming: George C. Scott's social work series on CBS, EAST SIDE WEST SIDE, with its vivid bi-racial stories (several strong enough they were never shown in Georgia, where I watched), and Richard Boone's one-hour series of original dramas, each one acted by the show's in-house cast of players. Boone, John McIntyre (WAGON TRAIN) and Henry Morgan (DRAGNET)were well known, Robert Blake was about to be-- the rest of the company were just as often featured (Bethel Leslie and Jeanette Nolan were particularly strong). They took the repertory ideal very seriously-- Clifford Odets wrote the premiere script, and their most noticed hour was written by Horton Foote ("All the Comforts of Home"). The quality of these shows was less remarkable than Scott's show, which I am convinced would still look good today. But Boone's experiment made a strong case for the idea that this was what actors should be doing, to enlarge their skills. Wherever Laura Devon, Lloyd Bochner, and Warren Stevens are today, they should be satisfied to have been part of this project.
