Wine Of the Country (Aired May 11, 1948)
Studio One, a drama anthology, which first aired Tuesday, April 29, 1947, at 9:00 over CBS stations. It brought hour-long presentations of books and plays to radio, many of which had not been attempted before. Fletcher Markle, a CBC radio veteran, produced, hosted and occasionally acted in the series. Half way through the season, ratings were not as expected, possibly because the series didn't air on the West Coast. Big name actors were brought in to help improve ratings. The sustained series still left the air after only one season. Studio One ran until July 27, 1948, when it was replaced by Rooftops Of The City. However, the standards it set led to a TV series of the same name which ran for nine seasons. Studio One seems to be a forgotten gem. If you like high drama, these shows should not be overlooked. Offering a wide range of dramas. THIS EPISODE: May 11, 1948. CBS network. "Wine Of the Country". Sustaining. An excellent love story of the South, spiced with jealousy and insecurity, very well acted. Robert Mitchum, Mercedes McCambridge, Everett Sloane, Connie Lembcke, Robert Dryden, Miriam Wolfe, Bartlett Robinson, Ian MacAllaster, John Merlin. 1:00:42. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index
