Screen Director's Playhouse is a popular radio and television anthology series which brought leading Hollywood actors to the NBC 
microphones beginning in 1949. The radio program broadcast adaptations of films, and original directors of the films were sometimes involved in the productions, although their participation was usually limited to introducing the radio adaptations, and a brief "curtain call" with the cast and host at the end of the program. The series later had a brief run on television, focusing on original teleplays and several adaptations of famous short stories (such as Robert Louis Stevenson's "Markheim"). The radio version ran for 122 episodes and aired on NBC from
Yvonne De Carlo, Burt Lancaster and Robert Siodmak
