Your Playhouse of Favorites - Pgm 49 - Robin Hood

May 16th, 2008

"Your Playhouse of Favorites" was one of many series produced especially for syndication by NBC; you might recall others such as "Five Minute Mysteries". The series were offered to stations regardless of network affiliation.

Most of these series are well produced and feature the talent heard on the network's programs and "Your Playhouse of Favorites" is no exception. The program adapted classic popular works of literature into half-hour dramas and, although they don't feature "star" names, are excellent examples of the genre. "Robin Hood" is program 49 in the series and dates from about 1949-50. The matrix numbers for the sides are ND6-MM-9170 and ND6-MM-9171-1.

You can hear a studio audience at the production - I wonder if these might school or church groups doing a tour of the NBC studios.
