ABOUT THIS OLD TIME RADIO SHOW:

Joan FontaineBakers' Theater of Stars was a weekly show on Sunday nights that featured some of the top name movie talent of the time.  You can hear Joan Fontaine, Joseph Cotten, Vincent Price, Dana Andrews and many more performing original radio plays. The plays ran approximately 25 minutes leaving one or two minutes for the Bakers' of America home economist, Miss Helen Reed, to provide an easy recipe and promote the organization. After Miss Reed, the host had a short conversation with the star and provided a preview of the next week's play.  The plays were dramas, comedies, and suspense, gathering excellent reviews from critics.

One interesting thing about the show is it was sponsored not by a family with the last name Baker but the Bakers of America who's job it was to promote the baking industry.  The group sponsored the last season of Hollywood Star Playhouse and intended to spend a good bit of the budget on radio in the future instead of on television. 

As part of the deal to sponsor Hollywood Star Playhouse, the network aired Bakers' Theater of Stars as a 13 week summer replacement leading up to a convention. 

Understand the Hollywood Star Playhouse did not just morph into Bakers' Theater of Stars - the shows were two separate shows with different formats.
