This week we begin with the Casebook Of Gregory Hood and The Black Museum from June 10, 1946. Then after Believe It Or Not, we’ll hear Stand By For Crime and an episode from 1952 titled Luke Larson’s Murder (begins at 30:09).
We’ll hear from a new series this week titled Fort Laramie. This audition episode (no title apparently) aired July 25, 1955. Then it’s Incredible But True and Nemesis On The Left. We finish off with Cavalcade Of America and The Texas Rangers, from March 6, 1939 (begins at 35:09).
This week we’ll hear Adam And The Darkest Day from Quiet Please. This one first aired November 7, 1948.
As with many Quiet Please episodes the audio quality isn’t fantastic on this one. If you’re a stickler for that you might want to skip it. Of course you’ll miss a great story in doing that!
The Lives Of Harry Lime aired between August of 1951, and July 1952 offering up a prequel of sorts to the Third Man movie. At least for the Harry Lime character. This episode first aired February 8, 1952 and it’s titled Earl On Troubled Waters.
Step through the creaking door, and join us for this tale from the Inner Sanctum! From June 19, 1945 we’ll hear Dead Man’s Holiday.
This week we’ll hear a radio version of the 1944 film The Uninvited, which was based on the novel Uneasy Freehold by Dorothy MacArdle published in 1942. This version comes from the Screen Director’s Playhouse, and first aired November 18, 1949.
We’ll hear from Escape this week, and their adaptation of Daphne du Maurier’s story The Birds. This episode aired July 10, 1954. Hitchcock would give us a film version of this one in 1963.
The original file, TheHorror268 had a corrupted version of the episode. Make sure you download file TheHorror268a (offered here now) for the repaired version.
Matthew asked to hear an episode from The Hermit’s Cave, one we haven’t heard for a long time here on The Horror, titled House With A Past. I don’t have an air date for this episode, but it’s safe to say it was heard sometime in the 1940’s.
