Startime (Series) (1959-1960)

Aka: Ford Startime

Sponsored by Ford of Canada, Ford Startime was one of CBC's titles for its prestige, ninety minute drama and variety series, replacing Folio. The broadcast coincided with the NBC series of the same title, and the CBC carried a number of the U.S. programs. The first Canadian production in the series was, ironically, a U.S. play, Arthur Miller's The Crucible, adapted by Mavor Moore, produced by Harvey Hart, and starring Leslie Nielsen. Most of the dramas produced by the CBC for the series were drawn from international sources, not Canadian writers.
