The Passerby is an American TV series that was broadcast in the 1950s and was distributed on the NTA Film Network.[1] It was produced by Ely Landau.[2]

Original plans called for a 15-minute program to be aired five times a week with production beginning in New York in October 1952.[2] However, the trade publication Broadcasting in 1953 described the program as a "26-part series of half-hour TV films", with production having begun in June.[3]

Celebrities who made guest appearances included Veronica Lake, Jackie Cooper, Fay Bainter, Eva Gabor, and Kent Smith. Among its directors was James Neilson (director).[citation needed]
