Jonas Trapp falls in love with …
Jonas Trapp falls in love with the beautiful Jessie, a wealthy girl out of his humble class. Against the wishes of her snobbish aunt, she marries him, later faking a pregnancy to win her aunt's consent. But Jonas tires of living off of his wife's family, and eventually deserts her to become a buffalo hunter. 11 years later, with his self-made fortune, he sets out to return home, only to be set upon by three sadistic marauders, who steal his money and leave him for dead. Rescued by a farmer who nurses him back to health, Jonas becomes consumed by the desire for revenge. As fate would have it, all three men live close to Jonas' former home. Matters quickly get worse when Jonas reunites with his wife, only to discover that she is now engaged to Renne.

It initially starred veteran movie supporting actor Ward Bond as the wagon master, later replaced upon his death in 1960 by John McIntire, and Robert Horton as the scout, subsequently replaced by Scott Miller and Robert Fuller.'

The Jane Wyman Show

This filmed drama anthology featured Academy Award …
This filmed drama anthology featured Academy Award winner Jane Wyman as the series hostess introducing each weekly installment, as well as starring in 42 of the 94 episodes. This series was a complete revamping of Fireside Theatre, with Wyman taking over as the producer from Frank Wisbar; it was produced by Jane Wyman's Lewman Productions in conjunction with Music Corporation of America's Revue Productions. The initial title was Jane Wyman's Fireside Theatre, but would soon lose any reference to Fireside in its title. The sponsor was Procter and Gamble (Duz, Ivory Soap, and Crisco) which reportedly paid almost $5,000,000 for the show's first season. Wyman's series differed from The Loretta Young Show, the standard bearer of the filmed star anthologies of the period, which also aired on NBC. Unlike Young, Wyman did not make a dramatic entrance at the top of the show, favoring the more subdued for which she was known. Of her years as a groundbreaking female television producer, Jane Wyman once commented, "I learned one thing - you can always get quality if you are quality." Scripts came from many top-notch writers, including Quinn Martin (The Untouchables, 1959-63), Aaron Spelling (The Mod Squad, 1968-73), Rod Serling (Twilight Zone, 1959-64) and Gene Rodenberry (Star Trek, 1966-69). At the end of its three seasons on NBC, The Jane Wyman Show was successfully sold into off-network syndication beginning with the 1958-59 season. Rerun into the 1960s, the series had its widest exposure as a weekday afternoon offering on ABC from 01/02/62 to 09/06/63. Episodes also re-aired in primetime as episodes of Studio 57 (Synd., 1956-57) and as part of the summer replacement series Summer Playhouse (NBC, 1957), Buick Adventure Theatre (ABC, 1958), Spotlight Playhouse (CBS, 1959) and Jane Wyman Presents (ABC, 1963).

The series was hosted by William Lundigan and later co-hosted by Mary Costa. It was one of the few CBS programs of that era to be broadcast in color (using the massive TK-40A color cameras pioneered and manufactured by RCA, and used primarily by CBS' arch-rival network, NBC). Many of the episodes were performed and broadcast live, and although the series was transmitted in color, only black-and-white kinescope copies of some episodes survive to the present day. The series finished at #22 in the Nielsen ratings for the 1955-1956 season and #26 for 1956-1957.

The Marshal's Daughter

Produced by Ken Murray …
Produced by Ken Murray strictly as a vehicle for Laurie Anders, his curvy protégé from his television show and billed above the title and first billed in the cast as Laurie ("I-like-the-wide-open-spaces") Anders, which was her catch-line phrase and how she was introduced and known. This is neither a comedy, satire or parody---missing badly on all attempts at such---and isn't much of a western either, even by bottom-of-the-barrel B-standards. The plot by veteran B-western villain player Bob Duncan, who did manage to write himself the best role in the movie, relative to there being no good roles in this movie, has town banker Anderson, the secret head of an outlaw gang, trying to organize a Cattleman's Association and not getting any takers. He sends for Trigger Gans to act as a persuader. But a mysterious, masked rider known as El Coyote begins to resist. El Coyote is of course Laurie Dawson, daughter of retired Marshal and rancher Ben Dawson, and her El Coyote role ensured that whoever stunt-doubled her would wear pads where no stunt man ever wore them, with the possible later exception of Dean Smith doubling Maureen O'Hara in "McLintock." The heroines that Dave Sharpe doubled in Republic serials weren't built like Laurie Anders. Producer Ken Murray, as a riverboat gambler named Sliding Bill Murray, rolls into town on the same stage as Trigger Gans, and then promptly engages Preston Foster, Johnny Mack Brown, Jimmy Wakely and Buddy Baer (in cameo roles) in a blackout-skit poker game written by himself, which had to have been even more painful for the participants than the viewers. Ralph Staub used to get better stuff than this in his "Screen Snapshots" just roaming around Columbia's backlot and interviewing Smiley Burnette and Ringeye.

Cereal manufacturer Kellogg's sponsored the show. The first and last airdates of the show, which was produced for first-run syndication rather than for a network, are disputed, but they are generally accepted as September 19, 1952, and April 28, 1958, respectively. The show's first two seasons (episodes 1–52, 26 titles per season) were filmed in black and white; seasons three through six (episodes 53–104, 13 titles per season) were filmed in color but were originally telecast in black and white. Adventures of Superman was not shown in color until 1965, when the series was syndicated to local stations.
