|Why did James Franciscus not reprise his role when the show returned to the air in 1960? |
Franciscus was under contract to appear in another series so Paul Burke was hired to replace him.
|Why did John McIntire leave the series halfway through the first season? |
Several reasons have been given so who knows which one is the truth. Among them--disputes with the series producer, a poor working relationship with co-star James Franciscus, and he missed his family and desired to return to the West Coast.
|Who was the narrator for the series? |
Producer Herbert B. Leonard was the narrator in the show's original 30 minute incarnation. Lawrence Dobkin narrated the later 60 minute version of the series.
