Description
Photograph was edited for publication purposes
Four Star Productions was started in 1952 by actors Dick Powell, Charles Boyer, David Niven and Joel McCrea. The company was greatly successful in producing many early hit television shows such as, "The Big Valley," "The June Allyson Show," "Burke's Law," and "The Rogues," among others. In 1955, Dick Powell became president of the company and a second company, Four Star Films was formed producing shows such as "Hey Jeannie," and "The Detectives starring Robert Taylor." The two companies merged in 1958 and were traded publicly in 1959 as Four Star Television. In 1989, the company was absorbed into New World Entertainment.
Photograph caption dated August 30, 1955 reads, "Left to right, Charles Boyer, David Niven and Dick Powell confer with their Four Star Productions associate Don Sharpe."
