This week we mark Pearl Harbor Day with a couple of annual specials – Norman Corwins’s “We Hold These Truths” – an hour long patriotic program which will also feature portions of my visit with the now 100 year old radio legend. Also back this year will be Lux Radio Theatre’s version of the motion picture; “The War Against Mrs. Hadley” starring Fay Bainter.
Some very significant birthdays this week led by Kirk Douglas (still with us and 94 on Dec. 9th). We have a two-hour special to honor the big screen leading man with three episodes of Suspense as well as The Screen Director’s Playhouse’s version of Douglas’s film “Champion.” During the special, I’ll be joined by channel fan and friend John Schneider (Dukes of Hazzard, Smallville, Desperate Housewives) who starred with Douglas in the 1983 movie, Eddie Macon’s Run.
To mark Arch Oboler’s birthday, I’ll have two from Lights Out followed by an episode of Arch Oboler’s Plays.
Speaking of Arch Oboler’s Plays; we also bring back that series’ version of Dalton Trumbo’s (born Dec. 9th, 1905) – “Johnny Got His Gun” starring James Cagney.
To mark producer/director William Spier’s birthday we have new to the channel offerings from The Adventures of Sam Spade and Suspense.
And last, but certain not least, we are playing two different two-hour specials to mark the birthday of Agnes Moorehead. The multiple Oscar and Emmy nominee was a major radio star and we’ll have her in multiple episodes of Suspense and The Shadow.
