"The TIME OF YOUR LIFE" William Saroyan's 1939 came to TV's 90 minute Playhouse in the '50s.
4 September 1999 | by joe.starSee all my reviews

The exception to Playhouse 90's being exclusively a Hollywood production was "The TIME Of YOUR LIFE", which came out of CBS TV's New York Studio. It starred JACKIE GLEASON in his finest, dramatic TV performance. The production's "humble" Casting Director/Assoc.Producer is proud to point out that it introduced, revealingly that the Eastern seaboard's socialite DINA MERRILL was and is a remarkably talented Actress.
