Another great new program… with a word of warning!!!

/Today we’re adding all known extant episodes of the drama anthology Silver Theater.  Unlike a lot of the other general drama programs, these stories don’t have their origins in the popular movies of the time, but sure do feature an incredible array of 1940s film stars.  The series kicks off with a four-part romance entitled “First Love” featuring James Stewart and Rosalind Russell (pictured above), and in the ensuing programs you’ll hear Cary Grant, Ginger Rogers, Fredric March, Joan Crawford, Orson Welles… and so on.  Also Helmut Dantine, which is where the word of warning comes in.  You see, Mr. Dantine has the lead in the final program in our set… which DOES NOT EXIST.  I know this because while traipsing around the ‘Net recently I was fortunate to find something called The Definitive Silver Theater Radio Log (Google it for yourself…), which states conclusively– and without fear (or tolerance) of contradiction– that this show is not available.  It is thus most likely only the ephemeral construction of my own weak and diseased mind, but you may enjoy it anyway if in fact it turns out to be a real audio recording after all.  It’s called “The Golden Pheasant”, from July 29, 1945.  I think.

    Thank you for this new series (new to me anyway). I look forward to hearing it. I’m just glad America is a nation of pack rats and took the time to save the non existant episode and provide it here for my enjoyment. I also look forward to hearing all of the other “Lost and Non Existant” programs out there.

    Looks like someone is routinely checking out the files in our library, because all of a sudden, the ‘N’ becomes a ‘Y’!!!
