The principal focus of the program was the initial movie’s movie director, who not merely served being a guest host but also participated within an interview towards the end from the broadcast. Unlike Lux, which highlighted Cecil B. DeMille as a regular web host, The Screen Director’s Playhouse acquired a different movie director weekly. Alfred about Screen Director’s Playhouse, Vol. 1 Hitchcock, Frank Capra, William Wellman, Robert Siodmak, George Seaton, Joseph Mankiewicz, George Marshall, and Lewis Milestone were among those showing up.
