A Four Star Production 

for NBC

US Anthology Drama series 1961-63 60 episodes x 60 min bw

 

Hosted by Dick Powell

 

Four Star Television was a company found to utilize the talents of

Dick Powell, Charles Boyer, Rosalind Russell, and Joel McCrea. In fact,

the last two hardly contributed and David Niven was co-opted with some

assistance from Ida Lupino. The main drama output was channeled into

'The Dick Powell Show' which was highly regarded. Not only was a high

standard of production maintained but several pilots were featured

including those for 'Burke's Law' and Saints and Sinners`

 

Powell last hosted the show for the January 1, 1963, airing. He died the

following day after a short bout with cancer. Introductions he had already

filmed for future shows were removed at his family's request, and a series

of guest stars taped those introductions, a few of whom are noted below.

 

Milton Berle hosted 'Charlie's Duet'

John Wayne hosted  'The Third Side Of A Coin'

Ronald Reagan hosted  'The Last of the Private Eyes'

This series really was DICK POWELL's finest hour. I give this "4 Star" series 5 stars in all categories.
 Production Values - HIGH, Script and Acting -THE BEST with fine list of Guest Stars. It's oozing with quality!
A pity he died during the production. There is NOTHING on the box of this quality these days. [DM]
