Synopsis
Their--by the 1940s--ubiquitous "BRO-mo-Selt-zer, BRO-mo-Selt-zer, BRO-mo-Selt-zer," mantra was heard during most of the sponsor's commercial messages. Needless to say, by the 1950s, Emerson Drug had a strong relationship with the major networks--CBS, especially. That new promotional platform became Hollywood Star Playhouse, a playhouse format, mystery drama anthology featuring major--and emerging--Hollywood Film stars in original, 30-minute productions written, for the most part, for a specific star. Hollywood Star Playhouse's premiere presentation of April 24, 1950 featured James Stewart in 'Nor Gloom of Night,' adapted to a 30-minute format. And true to its charter, Hollywood Star Playhouse continued to provide major stars in mostly original mystery dramas for the following three years over three different networks: The CBS, Bromo-Seltzer-sponsored run promised "tales of mystery, thrills and suspense," most of the productions written specifically for a particular performer by Milton Gieger or Maurice Zimm. The Hollywood Star Playhouse format also featured the star of the following production introducing that production, indicating that at several productions were probably performed and recorded in the same recording session. Herbert Rawlinson served as host of the CBS run, with the entire CBS run produced and directed by Jack Johnstone. Jeff Alexander composed and conducted the musical accompaniment for the CBS run. The ABC-sustained run of Hollywood Star Playhouse continued the 'tales of suspense, thrills and adventure' format. The ABC run also continued under the direction of Jack Johnstone and continued to feature original dramatic productions penned specifically for the productions' stars, penned by Milton Geiger, Maurice Zimm and Leonard St Clair among others. Basil 'Buzz' Adlam served as the music director for the ABC [KECA] run. Text from Digital Deli Too Website
