Landmark is an unsold pilot for CBS from 1956, described as being similar to "Disneyland" (now commonly known as "The Wonderful World of Disney"). The project was an hour long [1] dramatic anthology film series hosted by Random House President and What's My Line? panelist, Bennett Cerf.[2]

Each week the project was to feature movies based on Random House historical books. The first three films in the "Landmark" series were reportedly planned to be based on John Paul Jones, the Pony Express and Ethan Allen.

The April 7, 1956 issue of Billboard Magazine noted that a pilot was in production at the time. [3] A 30-Minute pilot titled "Ethan Allen", starring Rex Allen, had been completed by April 1957. Orginally filmed as part of this project, it was later shopped around as a separate series. [4]

The John Paul Jones episode was filmed in early 1956 and starred Warren Stevens with Ralph Votrain, Michael Emmett, Mike McHale, and Phil Barnes.
