Centennial Celebration Time for Gerald Mohr!!

Of course, even though it now been 101 years since his birth, we also honor Bailey this week. He plays Dollar in the five-part marathon, “The Silver Blue Matter” and in multiple half-hour versions from that popular series. We also have him in a new to the channel this week offering of Let George Do It.
In this year’s Judy Garland birthday tribute a special treat not only will we play Lux Radio Theater’s version of “Meet Me in St. Louis” but her big screen little sister Margaret O’Brien talks about that film and her talented co-star. Those interview segments with the now 77 year old former child star were recorded at the Turner Classic Movies Film Festival held in Hollywood back in April.
We have additional birthday tributes for Basil Rathbone (Sherlock Holmes, Lux’s “Phantom Of The Opera”), Joe Julian (X-Minus One, The Mysterious Traveler, The Molle Mystery Theater), Bob Cummings (Lux’s “Bachelor Mother” with Lucille Ball), Larry Keating (This Is Your FBI), Ernest Chappell (Quiet Please), Harlan Stone (Jughead on Archie Andrews) and more…
