Publisher's Summary

This radio dramatization of the classic movie, featuring the original stars, aired on October 7, 1948.

Screen Guild Players was the most glamorous charity program on the airwaves. The hundreds of thousands of dollars raised for the Motion Picture Relief Fund built and maintained the Motion Picture Country House, providing housing for former film stars who were suffering from health or financial problems. Eager to be seen contributing to the cause, Hollywood's best and brightest flocked to the program. At first, it was primarily a variety show, with its first broadcast featuring Jack Benny, Joan Crawford, and Judy Garland. Later, it became an anthology show extraordinaire.

Ol time radio mystery

Narration: dramatizations entertaining.

Story: well edited, abbreviated, predictable, fun plot.

Is fun to hear famous actors give radio theater performances.

Great old time radio with authentic Camel ads.

James Stewart was excellent and lived up to his usual excellence. the ads for cigarettes were a shock but made the overall experience authentic.

One of the best films

It’s a favourite film of mine and obviously James Stewart one of my favourite actors. The film is condensed to 28 minutes but is still fairly gripping. What I like about these are the original adverts as well. It was a different time and now we know how certain things that were considered ok are actually so bad for you.

Ruined by repeated cigarette adverts

Start, middle and end littered with adverts for cigarettes. Can’t think of a good reason why these were left in especially the one in the middle of the story.
Ruined it for me
