Lurene Tuttle was a mother-in-law of composer John Williams. From the lack of information, something unfortunate must have befallen her daughter.

In addition to being Sam Spade's regular secretary, I'm pretty sure she did a lot of the extra characters on the show.

IMDB said she gave voice lessons to both Orson Welles and Red Skelton, iirc.

Hi Gina, these hour long Suspense are rare.

Things are good in MD. Just put some chicken and bacon on the smoker.

How about you?

Until SteelYourFaith returns, here is another of my inferior quality synopses posts.

SPOILER ALERT!!!

------------------------------------

Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar. November 19, 1961. CBS net. "The Guide To Murder Matter". Sustaining. Johnny investigates a "Down Easter" and a murder by a 1922 Essex! Mandel Kramer, Ivor Francis, Ian Martin, Lawson Zerbe, Jim Boles, Art Hannes (announcer), Jack Johnstone (writer), Bruno Zirato Jr. (producer, director), Ethel Huber (music supervisor). 24:20.

Dragnet. March 23, 1950. Program #41. NBC net. "The Big Gangster" Part 1. Sponsored by: Fatima. Who has taken a shot at Gus Valentine? Even though he's on the wrong side of the law, the cops must protect him...and fail! See cat. #46926 for part two of the story. Jack Webb, Barton Yarborough. 29:35.

Gunsmoke. June 13, 1953. CBS net. "Spring Term". Sustaining. After an innocent man is killed right on Front Street, Matt figures out that he is the target of a killer hired by Danch, a man with no ear. Danch had sworn to kill Dillon. The script was used on the Gunsmoke television series on December 15, 1956. William Conrad, Parley Baer, John Meston (writer), John Dehner, Vic Perrin, Harry Bartell, Lou Krugman, Norman Macdonnell (director), Rex Koury (composer, conductor), Georgia Ellis, Roy Rowan (announcer). 30:25.

Our Miss Brooks listings did not match up with the date of this program given by WAMU. Colgate was not listed as a sponsor in January of 1949 (sponsors were: Palmolive Soap, Palmolive Shaving Cream, Lustre Creme Shampoo), and there are no program titles given on the old-time radio site and no story line resembling the title given by WAMU. Sorry about this one!

Information Please. November 1, 1938. Blue Network. Sustaining. 8:30 P. M. The first question is, "Give the present-day slang that parallels these expressions of the past." Clifton Fadiman (host), Franklin P. Adams, John Kieran, Marcus Duffield (columnist), Oswald Jacoby (bridge expert), Milton Cross (announcer). 29:02.

Crime Classics. July 20, 1953. CBS net. "The Death Of A Picture Hanger". Sustaining. The Ford brothers are hired to kill Jesse James, they do just that. Lou Merrill (host), Morton Fine (writer), David Friedkin (writer), Elliott Lewis (producer, director), Bernard Herrmann (composer, conductor), Clayton Post, Sam Edwards, Joseph Granby, Roy Rowan (announcer), Paul Frees, Joseph Kearns, Charlotte Lawrence, Paula Winslowe. 29:48.

Suspense. January 3, 1948. CBS net. "The Black Curtain". Sustaining. A man suddenly finds himself with a new identity: that of an accused murderer! This is the first program in a one hour format. The story was produced in a half hour format twice previously on December 2, 1943 (see cat. #24078) and November 30, 1944 (see cat. #46421). Cornell Woolrich (author), Robert Montgomery (host), Lurene Tuttle, Cathy Lewis, Jerry Hausner, William Conrad, Jeanette Nolan, Jack Kruschen, Paul Frees, Junius Matthews, Joseph Kearns (announcer), Conrad Binyon, Jeff Chandler, Harry Lang, Sidney Miller, George Corey (adaptor), William Spier (producer, director). 57 1/2 minutes.

Sounds great, Vision!

It’s a drop-dead-gorgeous Spring day down here, and Keith is slow smoking some St. Louis style pork ribs, and I’m doing laundry (as usual on Sunday).

That Suspense synopsis said this is the first hour-long format they did. It oughtta be a good one—interesting, creepy premise!

You need to raise your esteem on these descriptions; they look great.

Is Keith foiling the ribs?

Both you and SteelYourFaith are good with the bells and whistles of html code. I'm a novice. Plus, Steel has a source(s) that has all of the programs. I see my source misses some of them (like tonight's Our Miss Brooks)

Is Keith foiling the ribs?

No, he puts them unwrapped (indirect heat) on the grill and slowly smokes them for several hours until they are falling-off-the-bone tender. He makes a kinda thin glaze-braise out of various stuff in the kitchen, and he continues to brush the ribs with it every so often as he checks them and maintains the lower temperature of the fire. His ribs are excellent!

What are you doing with the chicken and bacon? Are they in a dish together or separate entrees?

Death by gaff.

I bet they are.

It's a recipe from Myron Mixon’s book. Chicken breasts marinated in coke, onion and garlic; then wrapped in 2 slices of bacon, smoked at 325 and finished in bbq sauce.

The fight scene was all Ed said it would be. It seems to me they may be a little short on copy and are filling with sound effects—remember how much dead air was taken up by the pinball-playing thug.

This is a two-part story after all. They’re “dragnetting” it out.

Vision, I don’t know if you’ve ever seen this, but here is a link to some “prevailing” opinions on the “best” and “worst” categories in old-time radio (scroll down for the chart on the main page): http://www.old-time.com/misc/bstwrst.html

Cool, I need to look into this. Two thoughts, first, I kinda like the bizarre Lipton Tea lady on Inner Sanctum- don't know why. Second, they're right about the scariest, we've heard probably half of them; especially the first two and they gave me chills in my bed.

Hey. What’s new? I was there with you yesterday fixing a leaking dishwasher. Now it doesn’t leak but sounds like a tractor trailer.

Best Show Introduction: Suspense

Completely agree, but they need to have Lux Theater there too.

Oh, you should have been around for the Nuclear Hot Water Tank Explosion a few weeks back. I replaced both elements one evening after the hot water stopped, then it died again the next morning, so then I put a new thermostat control module on it, took a hot shower, and went to work. The missus calls an hour later - she said she heard a big bang come from the utility closet, so she ran outside to throw the breaker, and when she walked back into the kitchen, the entire bottom of the tank blew open and scared the bejeezus out of her. By the time she got to the water main cutoff, we had a swimming pool inside. It took two days to wet/dry vac the living room carpet clean. Needless to say, I put in a cutoff valve in the cold water intake pipe when I replaced it. While all that was going on, we had a cascade failure of all the electrical outlets at the opposite end of the house, and I spent a day replacing all of them when I wasn't wet from the plumbing problem. We must have taken a power surge - that was all a little too coincidental.

So, how's things?

I guess I'm doing better than you. (:

We've had beautiful weather here. Sunny and in the 60s. Lacrosse season is in full swing. Might have some landscaping done but am still considering it. O’Mally just legalized homosexual marriage and folks are going through the process to overturn it this Nov.

These guys like the spooky shows, just like we all do. I agree with the Suspense intro, too, as well as the Lux Radio Theatre intro.

Have a great week.

Yeah, I saw where he not only legalized gay marriage, they're looking to increase taxes again on gas and alcohol, now they want to tax barber shops, beauty shops, car repairs, shoe repairs, fitness centers, escort services, and just about anything else they haven't levied fees against in the last fifty years. If it goes on much longer, the only residents left will be in the top 20% of household income earners, and then half of them will be living in trailer parks.
