GREAT OLD TIME RADIO
Hollywood Star Time and Star Playhouse
48 Total Episodes
MY HUSBAND HAS BEEN COLLECTING OLD TIME RADIO SHOWS FOR A LONG TIME NOW. HE LISTENS TO THEM WHILE HE IS WORKING IN THE DARKROOM.
WE THOUGHT WE WOULD SHARE THEM WITH OTHERS SO THEY COULD ENJOY THEM ALSO.
The second Hollywood Star Time (1946-1947) follows a similar format to Lux Radio Theatre featuring big stars reprising their roles in current movies. Stars in Hollywood Star Time include Gene Tierney, Gale Gordon, Douglas Fairbanks Jr. (of Silent Men) Tyrone Powers (of Freedom USA ), Vincent Price, Rex Harrison, Dick Powell, Alan Ladd, Cary Grant and many more.
Sponsored by Frigidaire and General Motors, Herbert Marshall hosts and Alfred Newman is the conductor. With Newman at the musical reigns, Hollywood Star Time is worth listening to for the score alone. The show had a big budget, great musical score, and great stars but never made great ratings perhaps due to the popularity of already established Lux Radio Theatre. Unfortunately, after a couple of seasons the show was canceled.
Well written and performed, Hollywood Star Playhouse recreates a slew of suspenseful, original plays that bode well for half hour shows. Many greats grace this grand show: James Stewart, Deborah Kerr, William Conrad, Betty Lou Gerson and Harry Bartell, among others.
Highlights of the show include the episode The Six Shooter, which later became its own series with James Stewart. Apparently in a lost episode, Marilyn Monroe made her radio debut on this show in 1952.
THERE ARE 48 Episodes ON 1 CD AND THEY ARE IN MP3 FORMAT. THEY WILL PLAY ON ANY COMPUTER AND SOME CD PLAYERS THAT ARE MARKED PLAYS MP3s.
