Raymond Burr's early television appearance!
3 February 2019 | by SylviastelSee all my reviews

Raymond Burr was an actor at the Pasadena Playhouse. Morris Ankrum was one of the directors there. In this Christmas episode, the three kings go to bring gifts to Jesus by following the star. It's a family theatre episode and charming for the most part.
