The Old Die Rich (Aired March 26, 1953)
The host of the show was Raymond Edward Johnson, of Inner Sanctum fame. Mr. Johnson handled Tales Of Tomorrow openings in a similar fashion to Inner Sanctum openings, but with a "science fiction" flavor, instead of a "macabre" sense. The shows of this series were quite good, borrowing ideas from stories in "Galaxy" magazine. Some of the story titles may seem familiar, like "The Stars Are The Styx", "The Girls From Earth" or "The Old Die Rich". These titles would appear later in CBS's X MINUS ONE. "Watch Bird" would later be done in South Africa, in a series entitled SF68. But radio was on the decline. Tales Of Tomorrow lasted only until April of that year. THIS EPISODE: March 26, 1953.
