Danger (suspense anthology)

    (CBS Primetime, 1950 - 1955)

    [offscreen narrator Richard Stack delivered the commercials
     on-camera live, which may have compromised the "suspense"
     somewhat...but after a particularly suspenseful show he
     delivered the commercials appearing "shaken" by the drama.]
