Marlin Hunt
Marlin Hurt, a white actor,
played the radio voice of 'Beulah'
"Sombody bawl fo' Beulah?" is the line Marlin Hurt is known best for, the star of The Beulah Show, soon to be followed by the other famous line, "Loooove dat man!"

A spin-off of the Fibber McGee & Molly series, Beulah was a novelty character, created and sustained by the startling concept of a white man doing a black woman's voice. As envisioned by Hurt, Beulah was in her 30s, "is man-crazy, weighs about 140 pounds, has good teeth, wears her hair in bangs and a pageboy bob. She adores short skirts and extremely high heels. Beulah isn't lazy!"

The series transitioned into a television series by Ethel Waters. See also: article on the history of Minstrel Shows and Old Time Radio. This show was closely related to the Amos and Andy, Johnson Family, Pick and Pat, Sam 'n Henry, Black Crows, and Fibber McGee and Molly shows that were so popular at the same time.
