Road Show - "Mister Roberts" at the Court Square Theater
Directed by Joshua Logan, the play starred Curtis Cooksey as The Captain, Robert Burton as Doc, and Don Fellows as Ensign Pulver. Cooksey and Burton were veterans, who first trod the boards on Broadway in 1915 and 1916, and Cooksey had appeared in several silent films. Both had worked in early television as well.
The cast also included a couple of newbies who would one day become famous names, Jack Klugman and Lee Van Cleef.
