      American anthology television series.

      The Goodyear Television Playhouse shared a timeslot with the Philco Television Playhouse: the two ran on alternate weeks, although the former only began running when Goodyear started sharing sponsorship of the existing Philco program in 1951.

      The separation between the two is largely cosmetic, but for purposes of classification, the serials that ran under each banner are usually listed separately.

      Number in series: 4.14


      The script for this episode is held in the Howard Gottlieb Archival Research Center at Boston University.
