Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The 60-minute Mr. Krane was originally telecast March 21, 1957 on the daily network anthology Matinee Theatre. The story is set in the future-that is, in 1962. A cabinet minister receives a phone call from the mysterious Mr. Krane. The caller claims to be a visitor from outer space....and he definitely has an agenda. Sir Cedric Hardwycke and John Hoyt costar in this dash of whimsy. Initially broadcast live, Mr. Krane later resurfaced in color kinescope form as part of the syndicated series Cameo Theatre.
