240-141222 In the Old-Time Radio Corner - The Philip Morris Playhouse

Johnny Roventini was a huge voice in a tiny body.  He was a real bellhop who was spotted by an advertising executive who thought Johnny might be the spark he needed for a cigarette campaign. 

He auditioned Johnny right there in the Hotel New Yorker, and hired him to represent Philip Morris cigarettes.

Johnny appeared on a lot of radio shows, including (what a surprise) The Philip Morris Playhouse.  The show ran, off and on, from 1939 to 1953. 

This episode, Murder Needs an Artist, stars Vincent Price.  It first aired on May 6, 1950.
