About this Old Time Radio Show

RKO Pictures
RKO Pictures produced a 15 minute radio show in 1945 that provided listeners and fans with a look behind the curtain at the inner workings of a studio. The show was hosted by RKO publicist Bidwell McCormick.

Edward G Robinson with ArtThere were star profiles, information about the books they wrote, hobbies, movies they were starring in and upcoming movies. For instance, did you know Edward G. Robinson did not like guns and had to work hard to keep his eyes open whenever he fired a gun in a movie.

The show also provided interesting technical information about what it takes to shoot a movie. For example, even though about 90% of the movies in 1945 were shot in black and white, all of the sets were in bright, living color. Cinematographers said that the colors provided a much better look on film than using shades of black, white, and gray.

The hosts also provided a lot of the same time of information you find today like which books were optioned for movies, movie release dates, and so much more. If you are an old movie fan, this series provides fascinating background so don't miss it!
