Strange Doctor Weird Old Time Radio Program
15 minute horror show
So, you've never heard of this program, but figured, well,
I have to see what its about with a name like Strange Doctor Weird.
To fill you in, its a rip off of Inner Sanctum and Mysterious Traveler,
but hey, its still fun. Doctor Weird is the narrator who delights
in telling grisly tales of suspense and just desserts. He lives
in a cemetery, and therefore he is not only Dr. Weird, but also
a little strange. The show only ran from 1944-1945. The part of
Dr. Weird was played by Maurice Tarplin, the same actor who played
the Mysterious Traveler. And the episodes were written by Robert
Arthur (one of the writers for Mysterious Traveler). The show is
compressed into only 15 minutes. As a creative exercise it is interesting
to see how they fit what is usually a full half hour show into half
as much time.
Oh, you have to leave now too bad! But
perhaps you'll drop in on me again soon. I'm always home. Just look
for the house on the other side of the cemetery the house
of Dr. Weird!
