The Ford Theater, sponsored by the Ford
Motor Company, presented hour long dramas
first on NBC for only one season. The series
moved to CBS for its second and last season.
The show initially received a bad review from the New York times for
bad script adaptation but was still highly rated for the actors'
performance and overall production. Initially, the show was
supposed to feature only original scripts, but
had to forgo that plan due to lack of quality
The first season relied on radio actors under
the direction of George Zachary. The series
moved to CBS for the second season, using
Hollywood screen actors in the lead roles, supported by radio actors.
Fletcher Markle, who previously produced CBS's
Studio One series,
became the producer for the second season.
The announcer was Nelson Case. The director was George Zachary. The
musical director was Cy Feuer.
