Throughout the run of "Four Star Playhouse", the show underwent tons of changes--not just the name of the show but the actual four stars. Instead of the initial four, the cast kept changing and dozens of different actors and actresses starred in the show (thus necessitating the name change). Towards the end of the run, Frank Lovejoy and Ronald Colman ended up replacing some of the original actors--and "The Man Who Walked Out on Himself" is a Colman vehicle.
Unlike any other episode I've seen, this one is essentially a one man show. While a butler BRIEFLY appears, the entire rest of the show is nothing but Ronald Colman playing a cad-like man who has walked out on his wife and is planning on marrying his mistress.
The problem with all this is that the show comes off as very self- indulgent. There's just too much Colman and the plot never becomes very interesting. Clearly unless you are a huge Colman fan, you'll find your attention span tested with this one.
