Cameo Theatre

Show Summary

Cameo Theatre was an anthology series from the Golden Age of Television, created by Albert McCleery, and was an innovative experiment of early television programming. His techniques and ideas were to focus more on the story and actors than the scenery, making for more intense viewing. This half-hour format consisted of top notch scripts, both original and adaptations. Controversial topics and a flare to bring the stage to the small screen made this program different than the usual fare. Airing as summer replacement programming this show aired only three seasons to be brought back in 1955 for the fourth and final run.

    They goes for a walk at the beach and he tells him she feels a lot better now when he seems to give things a try when it comes to him. She knows that he really loves her and now she hope he will accept it and give him a chance.
  • The show only ran for half a season and was mostly seen as a summer replacement. This dramatic Anthology series had unique possibilities on tv. It had live plays but very little on the set. There were mostly closeups to hide the rest of the stage.moreless

    The Focus on this series was on individual actors. The plays were both original and adoption for tv. The first telecast was by Arthur Miller called \"It Takes A Thief\". One of the first mini-series was an adoption of Ibsen\'s \"Peer Gynt\' which was a 3 parter.

    From a Howard Richardson play there was "Dark On the Moon" on January 6, 1951.
