| The Last Stand of Golden Age Television Drama.
Between 1967 and 1970, with a few scattered attempts afterward, CBs made a valiant attempt to revive the "Golden" Age represented by such superb shows as Playhouse 90. It was called CBS Playhouse, and despite usually anemic ratings, it was showered with Emmys. Two episodes were especially noteworthy. One was The Final War of Ollie Winters, starring Ivan Dixon as a black army sergeant in Vietnam. The other was The People Next Door, about a typical suburban couple who discovers to their horror that their favorite daughter has become addictd to narcotics. The whole series was superbly acted, written and directed. Naturally, it now gathers dust in the vaults at CBS Paramount. Do these people have ANY idea of the cultural treasures they keep under lock and key?
