The book presents the unique perspective of people who created entertainment that also served as an advertising vehicle while trying to reach national audiences. The record shows that Kraft Television Theatre was part of a continuum that spanned several media beginning with live theater and vaudeville, continuing through radio, evolving into live television, and eventually becoming part of a complex mix of broadcast television, cable television, and satellite broadcasting. The work particularly focuses on Stanley Quinn, Edmund Rice and Harry Herrmann.
