In the Corner with Dan Hughes


Jun 10, 2013

The Screen Guild Theater was another of those programs that turned  full-length movies into half-hour radio shows.  But this show was a little different.  All the stars worked for free. 

The money they would have earned instead went to the Motion Picture Relief Fund, and it was used to build a rest home for retired performers. 

The show was on the air from 1939 to 1952, and in this episode we hear Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell present the radio version of their hit movie, His Girl Friday.  It originally aired on March 30, 1941.
