Studio One - The Classic Golden TV Era Series Gets a 6-DVD Set of its Best Episodes!

In 1948 a CBS executive decided to take one of their radio programs, which had been on for a few years at that point, and adapt it to the budding new world of television. Thus began the 10-year run of Studio One, a drama anthology series which used the same concept of "an hour-long play shown on the tube" that several other contemporary shows did at the time, such as Kraft Television Theatre and Goodyear TV Playhouse.

But viewers and critics at the time, and many television historians as well, have agreed that Studio One did it better (and the show's run lasted a bit longer, too). It's won 5 Emmy awards (from 18 nominations), was considered one of the classic hallmarks of the early days of TV, and many of its installments represent the very best video drama of its age.

Now Koch Vision is releasing a 6-DVD set titled Studio One - Anthology. This collection arrives on November 11th, and features 17 restored/re-mastered episodes, plus bonus material. You'll get:
  • Twelve Angry Men
  • Wuthering Heights
  • 1984
  • The Arena
  • June Moon
  • Dino
  • Julius Caesar
  • Pontius Pilate
  • The Storm
  • Confessions of a Nervous Man
  • The Remarkable Incident at Carson Corners
  • Dark Possession
  • The Death and Life of Larry Benson
  • The Strike
  • The Medium
  • An Almanac on Liberty
  • Summer Pavilion
  • Bonus Material:
    • Footage from the Archive of American Television Utilizing Interview Excerpts about Studio One
    • Excerpts from The Paley Center's Studio One Seminar
    • Interview with Director Paul Nickell
    • Collectible 52-page Booklet with Detailed Information about Each Episode included with Studio One - Anthology
Stars of these episodes include the likes of Charlton Heston, Art Carney, Jack Lemmon, Leslie Nielsen, Norman Fell, Sal Mineo, Elizabeth Montgomery, Vaughn Taylor, Lorne Greene and Lee Remick. The cost is $99.98 SRP for 850 minutes from the Golden Age of Television. Here's a look at the package art:
