Welcome to the 1950s, and the golden age of television, when quiz shows and sketch shows were all the rage and many dramas were filmed live. 

Below is a list of Vincent’s dramatic appearances, which I will update continually as I continue my research. Vincent also made many appearances on a wide variety of shows during the era, so I have listed them separately at the bottom of the page.

Click on the links marked (*) for a review of the show only. The links marked (**) include either clips or the full episode. If any links are broken, please do email me.
