During the late 1940's and early 1950's, several different radio programs brought in Hollywood stars to reprise their performances from popular films. Among them, Screen Directors' Playhouse offered something that no other show had: the directors. Imagine, if you will, listening to a radio play of A Foreign Affair and then hearing Marlene Dietrich and director Billy Wilder share their thoughts on the making of this classic film.
In addition to Wilder, you'll hear directors like Tay Garnett, Robert Siodmak, and George Marshall in this set of 16 digitally remastered and restored episodes. This star-studded extravaganza brings you Bette Davis, Jimmy Stewart, Fred Allen, Kirk Douglas, Olivia de Havilland, Betty Grable, Lucille Ball, Cary Grant, Barbara Stanwyck, Bob Hope and many more Hollywood greats. These well-crafted adaptations of Jezebel, Call Northside 777, One Way Passage, The Sea Wolf, The Dark Mirror, and more feature high production values and outstanding supporting casts.
