A drama anthology series hosted by actress Loretta Young. In addition to hosting the series, she played the lead in various episodes.
This was an anthology show, a format very popular in television's first decade and the equivalent of today's TV movies. Most were hosted by men, and Loretta Young was the first woman to host one. Two others were Jane Wyman Presents The Fireside Theatre (1955) and The DuPont Show with June Allyson (1959).
When the series aired in reruns, Loretta Young's introductions and epilogues to each episode were removed. These omissions were made at the behest of Young herself, who feared of being embarrassed by audiences for her wearing dated clothing and hairstyles.
