Radio Detective Story Hour Episode 128 – Dime A Dance

Cornell WoolrichAnother visit with Cornell Woolrich, considered the father of noir fiction. I’ll look at one of his short novellas, Dime A Dance, published in 1938 and its adaptation on radio’s Suspense on January 13, 1944 starring Lucille Ball. The adaptation works for the most part and has the twists and turns of a good noirish suspense story.

Music under is Sonny Rollin’s rendition of “Poor Butterfly.”
