The Richard Boone Show

Show Summary

NBC's The Richard Boone Show! Having turned down a seventh season of Have Gun--Will Travel, Richard Boone embarked on a personal project: bringing repertory theater to the small screen. He gathered a group of 10 actors and actresses to perform with him in an anthology series. No one person was a star, not even Boone himself. The actor playing the leading role one week might have only a cameo in the next. The show opened to rave reviews across the country, but the television audience, unused to this type of programming, was slow to catch on. Because of this, the show was cancelled after one season--this in spite of continued glowing reviews and a huge protest from critics and viewers alike when the cancellation was announced. The Richard Boone Show won the Golden Globe for Outstanding T.V. Dramatic Program for 1963-64.

    I was about 11 or 12 years old, but still remember this wonderful show. Especially remember "The Stranger" with Robert Blake. Wish I could see them all again.
