James Mason and Buzz Kulik
20 October 2003 | by Single-Black-MaleSee all my reviews

In the 1954-55 season when James Mason was host, Buzz Kulik plied his trade as a director on this show before moving on to direct episodes of 'The Twilight Zone'. Charles Bennett, famous for his Hitchcock and DeMille collaborations in the 30's and 40's also wrote 'The Browning Version' which was aired on the 7th April 1955.
