Contract signed: "Richard Kiley" in ink under "Accepted", 2p, 8½x11, front and verso. New York City, 1953 October 9. On letterhead of The Theatre Guild to Kiley. The Theatre Guild employs Kiley to "act and appear in the telecast of the script entitled, P.O.W. to be produced by us under the sponsorship of the United States Steel Corporation...." Kiley was to be paid $750 for "third co-star credit" for the show, which was to be broadcast from New York City on Tuesday evening, October 27, 1953. Also signed: "Armina Marshall" for The Theatre Guild. "P.O.W.", which also starred Sally Forrest, Don Hammer, Brian Keith, Phyllis Kirk and Gary Merrill, was the first episode of the first season of The United States Steel Hour. In 1953, Kiley also appeared in one feature film, Pickup on South Street, and he was seen in guest appearances on several anthology series, including Tales of Tomorrow, Short Short Dramas, The Revlon Mirror Theater, Danger, The Web, Studio One and You Are There (three episodes). Singer and actor Richard Kiley (1922-1999) won Tony Awards for Best Actor (Musical) for Redhead (1959) and Man of La Mancha (1966), for which he created his signature role as Don Quixote (as well as Cervantes). Kiley, who was also nominated for a Tony in the same category for No Strings (1962) and nominated in the Best Actor (Play) category for a 1987 revival of Arthur Miller's All My Sons, did very little singing in his film and television roles.
