- On the air
for only one season, this series dramatized many stories taken directly from
the movies. Original film stars
were used whenever possible. Each
story that was broadcast, or the stars heard, had been nominated or had won
an academy award. The average
appearance fee for the stars was $4,000.00 and the sponsors of this series
also paid the Academy Of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences an additional
$1,600.00 to use the name. After
39 broadcasts, and costs of production, the series left the air permanently.
- Sponsor background information.
Robinson Squibb founded the Brooklyn, New York based pharmaceutical company
in 1856. In 1895 most of the
management responsibilities were turned over to his sons, Charles and Edward
and the company became known as E.R. Squibb & Sons. After Edward Squibb’s death in 1900, the sons, in turn,
sold the company in 1905 to Lowell M. Palmer and Theodore Weicker.
McLaren Bristol and John Ripley Myers purchased Clinton Pharmaceutical
Company in 1887 for $5,000.00 and incorporated on 12/13/1887 as Bristol,
Myers Company. In 1899 after
Myers’s death the name was changed by replacing the comma with a hyphen.
The company went into the black financially in 1900 and has remained
there ever since.
- In 1989
Bristol-Myers and Squibb merged forming the second largest pharmaceutical
company in the world.
