Kraft Suspense Theatre

1 9 6 3 – 1 9 6 5 (USA)

A weekly anthology series of hour-long dramas sponsored by the Kraft Foods Company.

The dramas attracted big names including Lee Marvin, Eddie Albert, Lloyd Bridges, Peter Lorre, Leslie Nielsen, Richard Crenna, Gloria Swanson, Telly Savalas, Leonard Nimoy, Ethel Merman, Tippi Hedren and Gig Young.

The plots (as should be obvious from the show’s title) tended to be suspenseful.

The pilot for the series Run For Your Life appeared as an episode of this show (called Rapture at Two Forty and aired in April 1965).
