Storyline

Using dramatic voice-over narration and detailed period re-enactments, this short lived CBS historical pseudo-documentary series examined the events leading up to the deaths of famous historical figures. It was developed out of Appointment with Destiny: The Last Days of John Dillinger (1971). Gripping but melodramatic, it used grainy film stock and chiaroscuro lighting to simulate the appearance of "actual documentary footage" from eras before such things existed (episodes included analysis of the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral and the Crucifixion of Jesus). Despite the difference in style, it can be considered a close cousin to its contemporary, the CBS revival series "You Are There" (1972), which was shot in ENG format with CBS news commentators appearing on camera amid the events depicted (often in period costume).
