Matinee Theater

Show Summary

Welcome to the Matinee Theater guide at TV.com. This daily anthology show - created and produced by Albert McCleery and hosted by John Conte, featured original teleplays, as well as adaptations of literary classics. The final credit at the end was a shot of producer Albert McCleery's signature on a card. A crew member, showing only his hand and arm, would underline his signature with a flourish. One day McCleery's wife was watching the show at home and complained of the unkempt appearance and poor grooming of the signer. McCleery had a wax cast of his hand and arm made and from then on crew members used this wax hand to sign his ending credit each day!
