Screen Director's Playhouse is a popular radio and television anthology series which brought leading Hollywood actors to the NBC 
microphones beginning in 1949. The radio program broadcast adaptations of films, and original directors of the films were sometimes involved in the productions, although their participation was usually limited to introducing the radio adaptations, and a brief "curtain call" with the cast and host at the end of the program. The series later had a brief run on television, focusing on original teleplays and several adaptations of famous short stories (such as Robert Louis Stevenson's "Markheim"). The radio version ran for 122 episodes and aired on NBC from
Yvonne De Carlo, Burt Lancaster and Robert Siodmak

The Lost OTR Show with Joe Bev "The Big Show" (conclusion)



The Lost OTR Show
with 
Joe Bev

"The Big Show" (conclusion)
Tallulah Bankhead,

Lost, now found Old Time Radio programs, not heard in more than 60 years, hosted by Joesph Bevilacqua. Produced for Waterlogg Productions and Joseph Bevilacqua. More info at:

and

This time Joe Bev airs the conclusion of "The Big Show" with Tallulah Bankhead, from February 24, 1952.

The Big Show aired for two seasons. For decades, recordings from the entire first season circulated in collector hands. Only four and a half episodes from the second season were known to exist... asking connoisseurs of the variety program to ask, "Where are the second season episodes?" As it turns out, they did exist. Author and old-time radio historian, Martin Grams, Jr., recently finished a book documenting The Big Show and Talulah Bankhead's radio career, due for publication in a few months. Martin was digging through a number of archives and stumbled upon the "lost" episodes. After paying a hefty fee and acquiring permissions from the proper parties, he acquired all of the "lost" episodes. What you are about to hear is one of those lost episodes from February 24, 1952, 1952.

Never heard since it's initial broadcast almost 63 years ago, Bear Manor Radio proudly offers a rarity you won't find anywhere else.
