EPISODE DESCRIPTION
The Sleepwalker (Aired January 10, 1953)
The special effects used in the live half-hour TV episodes had to be performed in real time. For example, pistols that shot invisible rays necessitated pre-positioning a small explosive charge on the wall. An actor would point the prop at that spot, whereupon a special effects worker would throw a detonation switch. These effects could not have been superimposed on film for the series was done live. For distribution to distant stations, an image of a tiny, bright TV monitor was filmed to make kinescopes, and most of the Saturday half-hour TV broadcasts are available in this form today. The 15-minutes-every-weekday version of the program was at first seen mainly in the Los Angeles viewing area, but also was later distributed nationwide via kinescopes; it was not carried by ABC-TV but was presented in syndication. THIS EPISODE: January 10, 1953. ABC network. "The Sleepwalker". Sponsored by: Ralston cereals (Space Binoculars premium). A half-million credits have been stolen and Carol has been kidnapped. Trailing the crooks to Venus, Commander Corry and Cadet Happy are hit by an "ultrasonic" beam! This is a network, sponsored version. Bela Kovacs, Dick Tufeld (announcer), Ed Kemmer, Ken Mayer, Larry Robertson (producer, director), Lou Houston (writer), Lyn Osborn, Mike Mosser (creator), Virginia Hewitt. 28:15. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.
