Monday, May 29, 1961 THE INDIANAPOLIS NEWS :n-vr.f fogt 23 MUTUAL RESPECT Steel Hour Loyal to Theater Guild By PHYLLIS BATTELLE, Special Correspondent Battelle NEW YORK In the slippery world of television, sponsors are constantly skidding out from under one show and sliding back of another. It is re- u.t.LI. . I . j" ' irmriiMiiic, men, C to note that on ( V June 28 The I J United States . cto Hour will c e I e b r a te its eighth year of continuous live dramas by sign ing up with the Theater Guild for another 15 months-worth. To understand why a huge corporation should be so apparently content with one program (especially one with de-! cidedly fluctuating ratings), you ' need only talk to the show's producer. She is a womanwith enormous charm, and common sense. "Why, the reason is very simple1 really," says Armina Marshall warmly. "When we started outit was 17 years ago, because U.S. Steel sponsored 6ur radio show for nine years Before television well, it was just a matter of coming to an understanding. "We learned all about how to make steel. And they learned how to put plays together. We found both businesses were fascinating and worthy of respect, and that is the whole secret. We respect their steel and they respect our drama." Miss Marshall, who is co- director of the Theater Guild as well as TV producer, makes everything look so simple. Like the matter of ratings, which throw the fear of Neil-sen and Arbitron into most TV personalities. "Oh, of course it's lovely to get fine ratings," she says, "but you can't expect that every week any more than you can hope to do a masterpiece each time. It can't be done, can it?" The Steel Hour is considered something of a phenomenon also in that it has continued to be telecast 'ITveT while virtually all other dramatic shows have gone to video-tape or film. Among the strong talking points for taping shows are the facts that big-name stars can perform at their own convenience on tape, and that editing can make a "perfect" production. Miss Marshall concedes there has been "talk" of converting her show from spontaneous to "canned," but she is adamant. "By doing shows live, we're closer to the theater. The actors play for an opening night. You can feel the pulse change, you can get a finer performance, you can sense the immediacy.
