Editorial Reviews

Four Star Playhouse had four rotating actors they were, Dick Powell, David Niven, Charles Boyer and Ida Lupino. Originally it was to be Dick Powell, Charles Boyer, Joel McCrea and Rosalind Russell, but that never happened. In its first year Four Star was on every other week sharing its spot with Amos 'N Andy show. Into the second season Four Star became weekly. Dick Powell played a character named Willie Dante who ran Dante's Nightclub. This character was shown in several episodes. The format of the episodes varied from comedy to drama ------------Backstage An actor named Paul is out on an evening stroll when he sees a young woman attempting to jump off a bridge. After a struggle, he discovers her name is Amy and she is homeless. Paul believes $5 could mean the difference between decency & despair so he pays for Amy to stay in a hotel for the night, agreeing to meet her the next day. Amy is nowhere to be found when Paul returns. He worries and begins the search for this mysterious woman. --------------The Squeeze Another of the great Willie Dante stories. Stan, the son of the DA, is a secret gambler. He loses big in Willie's joint and pays by check. Stan's pretty sister shows up to ask Willie's help. Deras, a gangster up before the Grand Jury, wants to get hold of Stan's check to blackmail the DA. He shows up at Dante's and Willie turns over the check at gunpoint. Never to be out-witted, Willie has Lt. Waldo waiting in the wings to get the checks back, have Deras arrested, and win Stan's sister.
