The Crusader (adventure, starring Brian Keith)

    (CBS Primetime, 1955 - 1956)

    [Brian Keith who was perhaps best known as a father in the
     sitcom "Family Affair" some eleven years later, played a 
     man whose mother died in a World War II concentration camp
     who became a crusading free-lance journalist attempting to
     right injustices throughout the world; perhaps this series
     was politically ahead of its time, for it only lasted a season]


Theme: "Crusader Main & End Title"

    [Verified as the THEME in TV Guide article "It Seems To Me
     I've Heard That Theme Before" July 28, 1956, pp. 12-13, with
     writer credit to "H. Lenard"; 
     
     "H Lenard" is unknown, but Melvyn Lenard is an alternate
     pseudonym of Melvyn Lenard Gordon, who was really publisher
     David Marvin Gordon of Gordon Music Co.
     
     It is not known who the actual composer was, since this was
     probably a "work for hire."]
     
     Composer: Melvyn Lenard Gordon (ASCAP)
              [pseudonym of publisher David Marvin Gordon]

     1978 Publisher: Gordon Music Co. (ASCAP)

     2001 Publisher: Gordon Music Company, Inc. (ASCAP)
