    ABC Stage 67 was an ambitious hour long anthology series that aired on Wednesday night at 10pm/9 Central. Drama, variety, documentary, science fiction and original musicals were all featured in the one season it aired. The average cost per episode was around $350,000. The series was shot in color on "state of the art" videotape, although some episodes were a combination of film and tape. The show had no permanent host and it's theme music was by Elmer Bernstein. The show did not attract a large audience and was moved to Thursday night (same time slot) in January of 1967. The best remembered episodes are Sam Peckinpah's Noon Wine, Stephen Sondheim's Evening Primrose and Truman Capote's A Christmas Memory. Quigley Publications (publisher of Television Almanac) gave the show awards for Best Network Program, Most Unique New Program and Best Dramatic Program-One Hour or More. Reportedly the master tapes were destroyed in the 1970's by ABC to make room in their storage facilities. The Paley Center For Media has copies of all episodes. The "Evening Primrose" episode only exists in a black & white version.moreless

    In 1955, Warner Bros.' new TV division, under the leadership of William T. Orr, launched an action-packed western on 'primetime' titled Cheyenne. Clint Walker played the title role of Cheyenne Bodie, a former army scout who now drifted around the West taking on odd jobs. One week might find Bodie a marshal, the next week a trail boss, a third a Cavalry scout. The Cheyenne title came from a 1947 WB western feature starring Dennis Morgan, but the new show had no other connection to the old movie. Some of the early Cheyenne episodes, however, were remakes of old Warner Bros. films—the pilot episode was a reworking of Rocky Mountain, an Errol Flynn Western, while other early episodes were remakes of Paul Muni's Bordertown and the classic Treasure of the Sierra Madre. Incidentally, one of the guest stars in the pilot was James Garner, who had been a runner-up for the Cheyenne role and went on to star in his own Warner Bros. western, Maverick. Cheyenne originally debuted on the ABC television network as part of a three-show rotation that ran under the umbrella title of Warner Brothers Presents. Cheyenne's two partners in rotation were Casablanca and Kings Row, also based on old Warner Brothers movies, but Cheyenne did the best in the ratings, and thus became the sole survivor of the trio the following year. In 1957, a contract dispute between Cheyenne star Clint Walker and Warner Brothers caused Walker to walk out from the show. Involved in the dispute were clauses in Walker's contract requiring that he kick back half of all personal appearance fees to Warner Bros., and that he only record for Warner music labels. Actor Ty Hardin replaced Walker, playing a new character called Bronco Layne, but the show retained the Cheyenne title. When Walker returned to the show in 1958, Bronco was given its own time slot.moreless
