Globe Theater 187

This is My Best – “Princess O’Hara”

Starring Charley Cantor, Alan Reed, Eddie Marr, Lurene Tuttle, Bea Benadaret

Host: Herbert Marshall

Actress Lurene Tuttle

Also in the cast is actor John Brown.  His plaintive, sometimes panicky, voice would be the narrator and omnipresent character of the 1949 series “Damon Runyon Theater,” where this story would be performed again.  You’ll find a  nicely-researched biography of Brown at the Digital Deli.

This episode, broadcast as a network episode on December 5, 1944, is taken from the series “This Is My Best”.  Fans of this series will be pleased to note that this is not yet in general circulation.

(The last portion of side 2 of this disc is a portion of the December 3, 1944 episode of “Matinee Theater” – “Jane Eyre” starring Victor Jory.)
