The Golden Age of Television (1981)

Release Date: Apr 1, 1981
Description: The hugely popular live American television plays of the 1950s have become the stuff of legend. Combining elements of theater, radio, and filmmaking, they were produced at a moment when TV technology was advancing and making art accessible to a newly suburban postwar demographic. These astonishingly choreographed, brilliantly acted, and socially progressive teleplays constituted an artistic high for the medium, bringing Broadway-quality drama to homes across the country. The following award-winning program - curated for PBS in the early 1980s as the series The Golden Age of Television, with recollections from key cast and crew members - were conceived by such up-and-comers as Rod Serling and John Frankenheimer, and star the likes of Paul Newman, Mickey Rooney, Rod Steiger, Julie Harris, and Piper Laurie.
