They all hosted and appeared in TV anthology series with their name in the title.


The Dupont Show With June Allyson 1959-1961

The Barbara Stanwyck Show 1960-1961

The Loretta Young Show 1953-1961

Jane Wyman Presents The Fireside Theater 1955-1958

I had two guesses at the time, but guessing one at a time, I went with that. My second is Plymouth Adventure, The Devil?s Disciple, and Slave Ship, that may all fall under early historical pics. You can have your pick of Beery's. They all seem so similar in tone with him in it, whether they're westerns, war, or historicals.

Sorry, Leanox. I mentioned in a previous clue that all 3 STARRED in a particular type of film


Hint: One of the 3 films that one of the 3 actors starred in is an EXTREMELY well-known film that was on TCM last week.


You'll all kick yourselves when you find out the correct amswer.
