Similarity
6 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show was remarkably similar to Way Out which aired on CBS from 3/31/61 to 7/14/61. They both were televised live on video in New York City. They focused on the ghostly, the unexplainable, the supernatural. Just as Way Out was short lived with 14 episodes so was Great Ghost Tales with 12 episodes. Great Ghost Tales aired on NBC from 7/6/61 to 9/21/61.

Because both were short lived and have become obscure with the passing of time, I doubt if any video company will place them on market to the public. Maybe CBS and NBC could work out a deal with people like myself and others whose heart was big over the episodes of Way Out and Great Ghost Tales.
