THE BARBARA STANWYCK SHOW

ESW Productions

for

NBC Mon 10:00-10:30

September 19, 1960 to September 11, 1961

 

Hostess & Star: Barbara Stanwyck

 

Miss Stanwyck starred in all but four of the episodes.

The four were pilots for possible series.

(1) "The Seventh Miracle" starring Lloyd Nolan

(2) "Dear Charlie" starring Milton Berle

(3) "Call Me Annie" starring Peggy Cass

(4) "Big Jake" starring Andy Devine

 

Three episodes that Miss Stanwyck starred in were

possible series' for herself. One of the three pilots

were "The Miraculous Journey of Tadpole Chan"

which aired Nov 14, 1960, in which she played the

adventurous Josephine Little. The audience was

asked to write in if they liked the idea and the response

was so overwhelming that two more episodes were

made, however this series never went into full production.
