Pic of the Day: “The Town Budget”

Here’s another one that was hard to come by. It’s from the Alcoa Premiere (aka Alcoa Theatre) episode “The Town Budget,” which was first aired on December 15, 1958. Tim portrays a cop-hating thief by the name of Jonas. His partner in crime is Arthur Batanides, whom my MST3K pals will recognize as wise-cracking Danny from The Unearthly (1957).

The Town Budget

Alcoa Premiere was one of those nifty anthology series that proliferated in the 1950’s and 60’s, like Playhouse 90, Kraft Television Theater, etc. It would be nice to see a revival of this kind of show.
