| One of the great TV shows of the Fifties
When I was a teenager, I used to watch Matinée Theater almost every day during summer vacation on KPRC-TV in Houston Texas. The quality of the show was amazing, considering that NBC produced a live one hour drama every day, and it was in color! Like most families in the fifties, we couldn't afford a color TV set, but I could walk down to the local Joske's department store and see it on a color TV set. Even though I was only a kid, I could tell that these shows were outstanding, and they often featured well known stars. It is unfortunate that many of those live shows were not preserved, especially the early color productions.
