Notes

General
The series ended in 1963 but in the late 1960s was temporarily revived, but not as a weekly anthology series. Instead, it presented, over a period of about two years, four special programmes, all adaptations of classic Broadway shows: Brigadoon, Carousel, and Kiss Me, Kate" all starred Robert Goulet (with different leading ladies), and Kismet starred José Ferrer .
