with host Gig Young)

    (ABC, 1955 - 1956)

    [umbrella title for three rotating series--which see:
     Kings Row, Casablanca...and the Western series Cheyenne, 
     which was spun off on its own.]


Opening Fanfare: "Fanfare"

    [According to Craig Pattillo, Heindorf was the orchestra

Main Theme: "Warner Brothers Presents"

    [aka: "Dominique's Theme", from "The Fountainhead";

     According to Jon Burlingame, this theme was adapted from 
	cues for the 1949 film "The Fountainhead", which was 
     scored by Steiner -- in particular, the section called
    "Dominique's Theme".

     This was verified in person by comparing an aircheck of 
     the TV show at the Museum of TV and Radio in Beverly Hills
     with a recording of "The Fountainhead."]
