This clip (which features Dean Fredericks, Celia Lovsky, Sean McClory and Barbara Beaird) is a 6 minute 13 second excerpt from the 16th episode, THE GIFT, written by Ray Bradbury and Sidney Carroll and directed by Don Taylor, which aired originally on Saturday December 20th 1958 at 9pm on NBC. It was never repeated in the United States. When ABC aired summer reruns of Steve Canyon in 1960, for some reason this one (and 13 others) never got shown. What you are about to see is the first time in 48 years that any part of this episode has been seen in the United States. The shows were run in Australia twice in 1959 and 1960, on Armed Forces television overseas in 1963 and 1965, and dubbed in Japanese and broadcast by Nagoya TV in Japan in 1963, and possibly 8 episodes were shown in Germany and latin america circa 1959/1960. If you remember seeing STEVE CANYON broadcast at any other time or place since, we'd love to hear from you.
Considered a lost series for nearly 50 years, Made with the cooperation of the US Air Force and based on Miton Caniff's famous newspaper adventure comic strip of the same name that ran nonstop from 1947 to 1988. The Milton Caniff Estate is releasing all 34 episodes on DVD in 2008-2013, visit the official blog at stevecanyondvd.blogspot.com
