Movie Playhouse - Pgm 4

September 13th, 2009

Here's the other side of the transcription set I posted a few weeks ago in the series "Movie Playhouse".  This appears to be a Towers of London production syndicated in the US by Charles Michelson; the transcriptions have Michelson labels pasted over the original Towers of London labels.

Program 4 of the series is "Take My Life".  The previous episode, "Becky Sharpe", sounds as if it was created specially for radio broadcast.  This program, however, sounds like it was edited from the actual soundtrack of the film.  "Take My Life" was a mystery film from the UK released between 1947 and 1949 in various countries, so this series can be safely dated to the late 40s or early 50s time period.

The mp3 was transferred from an original shellac Towers of London/Charles Michelson shellac transcription set, matrix numbers 6CTP 15069-1 and 6CTP 15070-1.  The show and series appear to be previously lost.  The show has been processed with click reduction software for improved sound.
