An anthology series starring Richard Boone as host and starred in about 50% of the shows. Each regular had parts in almost every episode and starred in at least one episode.Written by

This show is fondly remembered by those of us who saw it, but not as precisely as might be. One reviewer remembers John McIntyre on it, which he was not, and speaks of the various roles of "Bobby Benson," by which I think he means Robert Blake, as there's no Bobby Benson in the cast list. Another person remembers it being an alternative to "The Fugitive," but my family and I saw every episode of both of those shows, so they couldn't have been on opposite each other. Nevertheless, this was as great a show as everyone says. The rotating cast members distinguished themselves before, during and especially afterward in many memorable roles on stage, screen, television, radio and recording. Boone himself, alas, had little chance to fulfill the versatility he showed in the various plays, being mostly typecast in villain roles for the rest of his career. The Richard Boone Show itself quickly joined the list of excellent TV programs that simply never caught the fancy of the general audience. There's never been another show like it.
