Telephone Time

Show Summary

Welcome to the Telephone Time guide at

The plays presented in this film series had all been adapted from short stories by author John Nesbitt, who also served as host of the show, introducing each episode. The subject matter ranged from contemporary to historical, with emphasis on the varied natures and qualities of people, both good and bad. He remained as the host of the series when it moved from CBS to ABC in the spring of 1957. By that time the works of other authors had been included among the presentations. He was replaced as host in September 1957 by Dr. Frank Baxter. Another wonderful gem from the Golden Era of TV a must see for fans!
