Theatre On Television: THE CRUCIBLE (1967, CBS)

Welcome to another Wildcard Wednesday! In today’s post, I’m sharing an unreleased TV production of Arthur Miller’s classic play The Crucible, which aired 50 years ago tomorrow (May 4th, 1967) on CBS. The production starred GEORGE C. SCOTT as John Proctor, COLLEEN DEWHURST as Elizabeth Proctor, MELVYN DOUGLAS as Governor Danforth, TUESDAY WELD as Abigail Williams, FRITZ WEAVER as Reverend John Hale, CATHLEEN NESBITT as Rebecca, HENRY JONES as Reverend Samuel Parris, and WILL GEER as Giles Corey. It’s a fantastic production of a great show with a truly phenomenal cast (filled with many actors we’ve discussed before on this blog) — Colleen Dewhurst is particularly strong — and I recommend it highly. Enjoy! (Note that this copy, taken from a library archive, is in black-and-white.)

  1. Thank you a million times…I have been looking for a way to see this again ever since it was broadcast and I was very young.

  2. This is a great find. Now if you have George Segal and Nicol Williamson in the 60s TV version of Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men, my bucket list for lost repeats would be nearly complete…

    • Hi, Edward! Thanks for reading and commenting.

      I don’t and I’m not currently looking — but I DO have some other rare, exciting ’60s television coming here VERY soon! Keep your eyes (and ears) open…
