Heading up this week’s birthday blocks some Love For Lauren as well as a bit of Love for Lawrence!
We celebrate motion picture leading lady, Lauren Bacall with her work alongside first husband, Humphrey Bogart in both their early 1950s radio series, Bold Venture as well as Lux Radio Theatre’s adaptation of her big screen debut in Howard Hawk’s “To Have and Have Not”.
As to that Love For Lawrence, it refers to a centennial celebration for Larry Dobkin. They prolific radio, film and television actor (as well as writer/ director) will star in an hour of The Whistler followed by an hour of Suspense.
