Profile (Series) (1955-1957)

Although it sometimes featured film biographies of notable figures in culture, Profile relied on interviews for its material. It featured a wide variety of important persons, including evangelist Billy Graham, photographer Edward Steichen, poet Robert Frost, Paul-Emile Cardinal Leger, historian Arnold Toynbee, arctic explorer Vilhjamur Stefansson, theologian Paul Tillich, playwright Sean O'Casey, painters Arthur Lismer and A.Y. Jackson, and educator Moses Coady. The initial host of the program was Percy Saltzman, but over the course of the series many different people conducted the interviews.
