DuMont Royal Theater (also known as Royal Playhouse) was an American anthology television series which ran on the now-defunct DuMont Television Network from 1951 to 1952. The half-hour series ran during the summer and is best described as a dramatic anthology.
The series helped launch the career of Hugh O'Brian, who later appeared in the popular series The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp. Some sources say the sponsor was Royal Gelatin when it was part of Standard Brands.
