In 1935, the DuPont Company began sponsoring a radio program by means of enhancing the company's image and bringing great events in American history to an audience of millions. The best talent in Hollywood starred in lead roles: Basil Rathbone, Agnes Moorehead, Orson Welles, Humphrey Bogart, James Cagney, James Stewart, Helen Hayes, Rex Harrison, Bette Davis, and more. Playwrights such as Arthur Miller, Carl Sandburg, Steven Vincent Benet and Arch Oboler wrote scripts exclusively for this program.
With the co-operation of the DuPont company, this official guide lists each and every radio and television episode, in great deatil (with plots and a who-played-who cast list), memories from the writers, actors and directors, and trivia regarding the broadcasts themselves. You'll get an inside look at the production of how much work went into each and every radio and television drama. This is a must-read for every Hollywood, radio and television fan.
