$49.95

"There is an excitement in a live performance that technical perfection cannot duplicate...Viewers will react to them not just with pleasure but with shock and astonishment." That's what Time Magazine wrote about the live teleplays of the mid-1950s, which married theater, radio and film into a very popular postwar package. The best of these finely acted and orchestrated productions were re-aired on PBS in 1981 as the series The Golden Age of Television. This release boasts the early work of talents like Rod Serling, John Frankenheimer, Ralph Nelson, Paul Newman, Mickey Rooney, Rod Steiger, Julie Harris, Jack Palance, Andy Griffith, and Piper Laurie.
