Description by OLDIES.com:
This four-episode volume of shows from the golden age of TV drama presents stories from three of the best anthology series of all time: The Star and the Story ("Payment in Kind," "Dark Stranger"), Four Star Playhouse ("The Wild Bunch"), and TV Reader's Digest ("America's First Great Lady").
Payment in Kind: Detective Tom Preston (Howard Duff) finds himself in a troubling dilemma when the doctor that saved his wife's life confesses to a murder. Guest starring Beverly Garland, Steven Geray and Dabbs Greer
America's First Great Lady: A classic re-telling of the story of indian princess Pocahontas (Gloria Talbot) and the early days of America's first settlement.
The Wild Bunch: George (Charles Boyer) adores his lovely new wife Leonora, but is shocked to discover that she neglected to tell him of her three teenage children. When Leonora is called away, George must tame her hellion kids. Guest starring Natalie Wood.
Dark Stranger: Novelist Ray (Edmond O'Brien) cannot believe his eyes when Jill, the lead character in his latest book, seems to come to life. Joanne Woodward and Evelyn Ankers guest star.
The fourth volume of GOLDEN AGE THEATER contains more episodes from GENERAL ELECTRIC THEATER, a television program from the 1950s that staged productions adapted from short stories, novellas, and screenplays. There are four episodes on VOLUME 4, starring Edmond O'Brien, Howard Duff, and Gloria Talbot, among others. The program had a high standard of excellence in production and performance, which translates nicely to digital.
