When John Conte was notified that this show would be cancelled, he asked the television audience to try and help keep the program on the air by sending in one dollar to keep this show on the air. People sent in their dollar bills, but to no avail. The network cancelled the show, and Mr. Conte returned all the money to the television audience. John Conte was absent for one or more of the live programs, and Richard Conte substituted as the host. The program was on for an hour every day at 3 p.m. Eastern Time. See more »
When I was a teenager, I used to watch Matinée Theater almost every day during summer vacation on KPRC-TV in Houston Texas. The quality of the show was amazing, considering that NBC produced a live one hour drama every day, and it was in color! Like most families in the fifties, we couldn't afford a color TV set, but I could walk down to the local Joske's department store and see it on a color TV set. Even though I was only a kid, I could tell that these shows were outstanding, and they often featured well known stars. It is unfortunate that many of those live shows were not preserved, especially the early color productions.
