Destiny (dramatic anthology)

     (CBS Primetime, summers of 1957 and 1958)

     [This series was hosted by Francis L. Sullivan; It was a 
      summer-replacement series for Four-Star Production's 
     "Zane Grey Theatre"; It was packaged by Revue Productions;
      It included two original episodes produced in 1953 and 1957;
      the rest were re-runs from other dramatic anthology series]


Theme: "The Destiny Theme"

    [vocal title: ""What Is My Destiny?"]

    [This composition was written by a British trio of
     songwriters who composed the hit, "A Blossom Fell" made
     famous by Nat "King" Cole. They used the joint pseudonym
     of "Milton Carson"."

     Apparently the publisher had high-hopes for this tune, for
     six months later, a lyric was written by Carl Sigman -- who had
     written many hit lyrics for European melodies. The complete 
     vocal title was: "What Is My Destiny? (from The Destiny Theme)."]

     Composer: attributed to Milton Carson (ASCAP/BMI)

               collaboration by Howard Ellington Barnes (British PRS),
