Trivia

John Frankenheimer liked to say that this was the most aptly-named show on television, and insisted that, by the time he began working on it as an Assistant Director, the network was mostly assigning segments to directors they wanted to fire. The idea was that the pressure of work would cause these directors either to come up with inferior work, which would be used as an excuse for dismissal, or else force them to resign. He also claimed he was sometimes bribed by these directors to do most of their work for them, so that they would look good to their bosses. Eventually, or so he told many interviewers, one director became hysterical during the live broadcast and he, Frankenheimer, had to knock him out and take over the full handling of the show to prevent catastrophe. This led to his being promoted to full-time director at the age of twenty-four. See more »

James Dean lits the screen
3 March 2021 | by fernandomaronSee all my reviews

I've only saw 2 episodes of this show, both starred by James Dean, one called 'Padlocks' and other 'Death is my neighbor', in both Dean plays a criminal type and he showcases his early talent with some great acting moments. James Dean fans and aspiring actors should see this, it's a great way to see more of this legendary actor other than his 3 famous movies. His acting is very natural and full of minimal expressions, a true master on his craft.
