THE O. HENRY PLAYHOUSE - THE COMPLETE SERIES, VOL. 3 (1957) (DVD)

Now available for the first time on DVD from ClassicFlix—-a long-lost television anthology series spotlighting the works of one of America's most beloved short story authors!

William Sydney Porter, better known by his pen name O. Henry, is celebrated the world over for his humorous writing style which is also noted for its surprise endings. His works include such classics as “A Retrieved Reformation” and “The Caballero's Way" (which introduced his enduring literary creation The Cisco Kid).

Executive producers Jack J. Gross and Philip N. Krasne (Big Town, The Lone Wolf) brought O. Henry's prolific output to TV screens in 1957 with The O. Henry Playhouse. Academy Award-winning actor Thomas Mitchell (Stagecoach) portrays writer O. Henry himself in each episode as he describes his current story-in-progress to his publisher and others he interacts with.

Directed by such Hollywood veterans as Bernard Girard and George Waggner, The O. Henry Playhouse - The Complete Series, Vol. 3 contains the final thirteen half-hour episodes that shine the spotlight on such timeless tales as "The Hiding of Black Bill" and "Two Thanksgiving Day Gentlemen”; and also features a glittering array of movie and TV stars in Morey Amsterdam, Charles Bronson, John Carradine, Anthony Caruso, Tom Conway, Kenneth Tobey, Lawrence Dobkin, Denver Pyle, June Vincent, Ned Glass, Don "Red" Barry, Frieda Inescort, DeForest Kelley, Benny Rubin, Doris Singleton, Russell Thorson, John Hoyt, Les Tremayne and Marsha Hunt.
