Product Details

Pioneering sci-fi TV series TALES OF TOMORROW aired 85 episodes between 8/3/51 and 9/13/53 on the ABC-TV network. These half-hour stories often featured many famous Hollywood stars (like Boris Karloff, Franchot Tone and Burgess Meredith) as well as some up-and-comers (James Dean, Rod Steiger, Joanne Woodward, Leslie Nielsen). Special effects, props and scenery are minimal, yet this forerunner of TWILIGHT ZONE, THE OUTER LIMITS (and so many others) has a charm all its own. The fourteen chapters on volume three are all from TOT's second season. Also available is TALES OF TOMORROW, COLLECTION ONE which contains 13 star-studded season #1 shows. CONTENTS include titles, original airdates and principal actors.
