Best Plays - Pgm 4

September 18th, 2009

I don't have that many hour-long dramas in my collection, but I've been lucky enough to obtain a few episodes of NBC's prestigious "Best Plays" program broadcast in the early 1950s and featuring adaptations of works from the New York stage.

This week, we hear program 4 in the series as broadcast on the Armed Forces Radio and Television Service, and originally heard May 8, 1953 on NBC, Burgess Meredith and Anthony Quinn in a well done adaptation of John Steinbeck's "Of Mice and Men".

The show was transferred from an original vinyl AFRTS transcription set.
