ABC Theatre: Love Among the Ruins
ABC Television Network
Civilized dramatic entertainment is an area which television has been noticeably reluctant to explore. And perhaps for a very good reason: it requires exceptional talent at every level. Such a drama was the ABC Theatre production, Love Among the Ruins, written for television by James Costigan, directed by George Cukor, and starring two of the most distinguished performers of our time: Katharine Hepburn and Laurence Olivier. It was intelligent and amusing to the ear and beautiful to the eye. It proved that television can go first class if it wishes to do so.
