Radio Mirror

So I just picked up this May, 1939 issue of Radio Mirror. I got it for the articles. That's Miss Dorothy Lamour, there, on the cover (Hubba, hubba!). Does anyone else think that she looks sort of like Bebe (Frasier's Lilith) Neuwirth? It's almost like looking into a mirror...a RADIO MIRROR, that is! I say, that's a JOKE, son. Ya get it? A joke!

Radio Blooper

In a newly-restored episode of "The Sealed Book", July 4th 1945, titled "Death Brings Down The Curtain", the evil actress rants:

"Be quiet, you fool! They can't prove a thing! No jury in the world would believe them...I'm too great an actress to be convicted of murder, do you hear?!? I'll give a performance that'll sweep a jury off it's feet. They'll never forgive me, they'll never convict me, never, Never, NEVER!"

Listen for the BIG BLOOPER toward the end, when she says "forgive" instead of "convict"...good thing that she really jacks up the energy right after that, so we don't even notice the mistake. In fact, it actually lends a bit of credibility to her character being a nutjob. But not the greatest actress, unfortunately...

Pick up the new Sealed Book set in sparkling clear sound HERE.
