Host: Frank Willis

An outgrowth of the CBC dramatic anthology General Motors Theatre, General Motors Presents launched its
three-year run in 1958 with one of the largest budgets ever afforded a Canadian TV series.
This was because several of the program's hour-long episodes had been picked up for telecast in the United States,
to air as part of the ABC anthology "Encounter" for a period of 39 weeks. Alas, "Encounter" folded early due to poor ratings,
leaving the Canadian producers to make up the remaining budget costs without American assistance.

Season 2: CBC Saturdays 9:00 p.m. 01-Oct-1955 to 23 Jun-1956
