In the Corner with Dan Hughes

Jul 16, 2012

Many of the movies on the Academy Award Theater did not win Academy Awards.  The only requirement was that either the movie, or one of its stars, had been nominated for an Oscar.  That left the door open for a huge number of movies to appear on this radio-adaptation series. 

The Academy Award Theater ran for just one season, in 1946. 

This episode, My Sister Eileen, starred Rosalind Russell (who was nominated for Best Actress) and Janet Blair, both in the movie and in this radio version of the movie. 

It originally aired on May 18, 1946.
