Saved From Oblivion (021) – Suspense: To Find Help (10/15/15)

RenderedImage (32:10) Saved From Oblivion was created to easily let you hear the best (and at times, the strangest) from radio’s “golden age“. The radio show, Suspense, was among radio’s longest-lasting and brightest programs. There are almost 1000 episodes to choose from and probably 80% of them are what I would call “high quality”.

This episode, “To Find Help”, is from 1949 and was a remake of an earlier version that was done in 1945. This later version is superior to the other, in my opinion, and this is why I have chosen to let you hear this one.

Starring the great stage and film actress, Ethel Barrymore and Hollywood’s second-favorite male dancer, Gene Kelly, these two team up as an unlikely pair in what truly is a spooky psychological thriller (common after World War II both on film and radio).
