BIG TOWN & HEART OF THE CITY

BIG TOWN & HEART OF THE CITY

 

When Big Town moved to television, the program was telecast live, but in 1952 the production switched to film after the move from New York City to Hollywood. The television series ran on CBS from 1950 through 1954, continuing on NBC from 1955 through 1956. Repeat episodes aired on the DuMont Network (under the title City Assignment) while Big Town was still showing first-run episodes on CBS.
Reruns were also shown under the titles Heart of the City, Headline and Byline Steve Wilson. The stories revolved around The Illustrated Press, the city's largest newspaper, and the people who worked for it, most particularly managing editor Steve Wilson (played by Patrick McVey from 1950 -1954 and by Mark Stevens from 1954-1956). Five different actresses had the role of reporter Lorelei Kilbourne. This rare two disc set features episodes from the series under the name BIG TOWN & HEART OF THE CITY.
This 18 episode set is quite rare and while we do not have the titles for each episode every show is different and a must for fans of the mystery series that deal with reporters out to rid the city of crime.
