The Star and the Story - 1955-1956

The Star and the Story

This series was produced independently and sold to television stations in different cities without regard to any network affiliation. In the northeast U.S. the Rheingold Beer Company sponsored the programs, with Henry Fonda hosting and doing the beer commercials for many of the episodes. Each guest star chose the story that he or she would take part in, thus The Star, and The Story.
