Happy Birthday Ida Lupino

Once upon a screen...

Starring Humphrey Bogart and Ida Lupino reprising their film roles in High Sierra based on the story by W. R. Burnett.  This show was originally broadcast on April 17, 1944 on the Columbia Broadcasting System (CBS) and was Bogart’s second radio recording of his character, Roy Earle from the 1941 Raoul Walsh film adaptation, his breakout role.  He’d voiced the character previously on January 4, 1942 co-starring with another actress.

The Screen Guild Theater was a popular radio anthology series broadcast from 1939 until 1952.

Note that this recording also includes broadcasts of Screen Guild Theater radio adaptations of Disney’s, Snow White and another gem that stars Brian Donlevy and Lucille Ball, A Night to Remember.  The focus here is High Sierra, however, in tribute to Ida Lupino on what would have been her 94th birthday.
