Danger

Show Summary

Danger was live half-hour dramatic anthology on CBS-TV. The series, with stories focused on characters in peril facing psychological suspense and often murder, was highly regarded for the quality of its stories and productions. Yul Brynner, CBS-TV staff director, headed the directing at the beginning; he brought in friend Sidney Lumet as his assistant director. When Brynner departed after landing the lead in The King and I, Lumet took over and directed some 150 live episodes of the series. Another later-famous film director, John Frankenheimer, took over later when Lumet finally moved to other series. The series employed a number of writers who were "blacklisted" (Walter Bernstein and Abraham Polonsky) who used phony pen names to hide their identities. The initial producer, Martin Ritt, was sacked in 1952 when he became "blacklisted".

  • Borderline acceptable. How far down has television sunk to these days. Not to disrespect the creators of Danger but I guess it's simply the trend of tv these days (nothing good on.)moreless

    Borderline acceptable. How far down has television sunk to these days. Not to disrespect the creators of Danger but I guess it's simply the trend of tv these days (nothing good on.) Time poorly wasted.This show is not nice, but the borderline of the story is acceptable.just ok but not the nice show.
  • Live, very-early-days-of-TV drama and mystery show..Yul Brynner first producer with some outstanding acting and musical background.

    I only write this in response to member ara2kch16\'s review of the \"Danger\" TV show. I think the reviewer was possibly confusing this with a \"present day\" TV production...bear in mind that this program ran in the 1950\'s!!....almost the very beginning of TV!..the last program aired in 1955..what you were watching were recorded years ago!..now, viewed in that light, I think there are some things one should consider...first and foremost!..this was LIVE TV!!...no outtakes!..no re-dos!!...no taperecordings to edit and correct errors..a weekly program with minimum rehearsal times and starring some outstanding actors and actresses in their very early days.....also, an original, groundbreaking, brilliant musical background by the late, great guitarist Tony Mottola..also done live.....I think these Danger episodes should be viewed as classics.....in much the same manner as early \"talkies\" are in the movies....I remember watching these (when I was lots younger) on my Muntz TV set with the rabbit ears antennaes and just being thrilled by all of them...........moreless
