The Damon Runyon Theater - What No Butler (12-04-49)  

What No Butler? (Aired December 4, 1949)
The Damon Runyon Theater radio series dramatized 52 of Runyon's short stories in weekly broadcasts running from October 1948 to September 1949 (with reruns until 1951). The series was produced by Alan Ladd's Mayfair Transcription Company for syndication to local radio stations. John Brown played the character "Broadway," who doubled as host and narrator. The cast also comprised Alan Reed, Luis Van Rooten, Joseph Du Val, Gerald Mohr, Frank Lovejoy, Herb Vigran, Sheldon Leonard, William Conrad, Jeff Chandler, Lionel Stander, Sidney Miller, Olive Deering and Joe De Santis. Pat O'Brien was initially engaged for the role of "Broadway". The original stories were adapted for the radio by Russell Hughes.

Hosted by Donald Woods, the program, sponsored by Anheuser-Busch's Budweiser beer, aired for a total of 39 episodes on CBS from April 1955 through February 1956 (repeats continued through June).

The Whistler - Death Pays A Visit (06-11-45)  

Death Pays A Visit (Aired June 11, 1945)
The stories followed an effective formula in which a person's criminal acts were typically undone either by an overlooked but important detail or by their own stupidity. On rare occasions a curious twist of fate caused the story to end happily for the episode's protagonist. Ironic twist endings were a key feature of each episode. The Whistler himself narrated, often commenting directly upon the action in the manner of a Greek chorus, taunting the criminal from an omniscient perspective. Bill Forman had the title role of host and narrator. Others who portrayed the Whistler at various times were Gale Gordon, Joseph Kearns, Marvin Miller (announcer for The Whistler and The Bickersons and later as Michael Anthony on TV's The Millionaire), Bill Johnstone (who had the title role on radio's The Shadow from 1938 to 1943) and Everett Clarke. Cast members included Hans Conried, Joseph Kearns, Cathy Lewis, Elliott Lewis, Gerald Mohr, Lurene Tuttle and Jack Webb. THIS EPISODE: June 11, 1945. CBS Pacific network. "Death Pays A Visit". Sponsored by: Signal Oil. Jack Crowley needs $10,000 fast to cover the shortage in his accounts at the bank. Along comes laughing cousin Charlie for a weekend visit...with $10,000 in cash! The course of action called for seems obvious. Was it a coincidence that the "greedy" wife is named, "Trina?" George W. Allen (director), Lewis Reed (writer), Wilbur Hatch (music), Marvin Miller (announcer), Elliott Lewis. 29:14. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

The Adventures Of Philip Marlowe - The Panama Hat (10-10-48)  

The Panama Hat (Aired October 10, 1948)
The first portrayal of Philip Marlowe on the radio was by Dick Powell, when he played Raymond Chandler's detective on the Lux Radio Theater on June 11, 1945. This was a radio adaptation of the 1944 movie, from RKO, in which Mr. Powell played the lead. Two years later, Van Heflin starred as Marlowe in a summer replacement series for the Bob Hope Show on NBC. This series ran for 13 shows. On September 26, 1948, Gerald Mohr became the third radio Marlowe, this time on CBS. It remained a CBS show through its last show in 1951. Dashiell Hammett introduced the new genre, and Sam Spade, in 1930 in his novel The Maltese Falcon. A few years later Raymond Chandler came along and perfected the type, with his detective, Philip Marlowe. Chandler introduced Marlowe in his first novel, The Big Sleep, and Philip Marlowe continued to solve crimes in six subsequent Chandler novels. Chandler had previously published a number of short stories featuring other detectives; however, Marlowe proved so popular that when the stories were later republished the author often switched the detectives to Philip Marlowe. THIS EPISODE: October 10, 1948. CBS network. "The Panama Hat". Sustaining. Marlowe becomes involved with a gambling debt, an attempted murder, a kidnapping, a red-headed Dragon Lady, and the mysterious man in the Panama hat. William Lally, Gerald Mohr, Jacqueline DeWitt, Jeff Corey, Lou Krugman, Norman Macdonnell (producer, director), Raymond Chandler (creator), Richard Aurandt (music), Roy Rowan (announcer), Shepard Menken, Wilms Herbert. 29:50.
