      the rest were re-runs from other dramatic anthology series]


Theme: "The Destiny Theme"

    [vocal title: ""What Is My Destiny? (from The Destiny Theme)"]

    [This composition was written by a British trio of
     songwriters who composed the hit, "A Blossom Fell" made
     famous by Nat "King" Cole. They used the joint pseudonym
     of "Milton Carson". The collaborators were:
         Harold Cornelius ("Harry") Fields (British PRS), 
         Howard Ellington Barnes (British PRS),
         Joseph Dominic Roncoroni (British PRS).

     Apparently the publisher had high-hopes for this tune, for
     six months later, a lyric was written by Carl Sigman -- who had
     written many successful lyrics for European melodies."]

     Composer: attributed to Milton Carson (ASCAP/BMI), with
               lyrics added later by Carl Sigman (ASCAP)
