Movie Reviews

Four examples of The General Electric Theater
Annie Van Auken | Planet Earth | 03/17/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"All four half-hour dramas in Volume #1 of TV GOLDEN AGE THEATER are from season #4 of "General Electric Theater." This show aired for 10 seasons (from 2/1/53 to 9/1/62) on the CBS network and was hosted by Ronald Reagan, who also appeared occasionally as part of an episode's cast.


FEATHERTOP-- Adapted from a Nathaniel Hawthorne tale set in 1600's New England of a scarecrow that magically comes to life.

THE GOLDEN KEY-- An elderly, retired railroader develops a friendship with a young boy. This one has an interesting supporting cast. Kenny Delmar portrayed Senator Claghorn on radio in the "Allen's Alley" segment of "The Fred Allen Show." Mel Blanc adapted Delmar's Southern accent and voice for the Foghorn Leghorn rooster cartoons produced by WARNER's. Van Dyke Parks (a small boy here) is best known for his musical collaborations in the late 1960s with Beach Boy Brian Wilson. Their "Heroes and Villains" was a Top 40 hit in 1968.

THE HONEST MAN-- A piano tuner gets caught up with fast women, gangsters and stolen jewels.

LET IT RAIN-- A ghost story set in a small Southern town that well recalls its Civil War past.

TV GOLDEN AGE THEATER, Vol. 2 features four more season #4 "General Electric Theater" episodes that star Ricardo Montalban, Joan Fontaine, Macdonald Carey and Gisele McKenzie.
