80 Years Ago Tonight

I’ve been watching PERRY MASON on the local MeTV outlet lately.  On the show Ray Collins played Lt. Tragg of the Los Angeles Police Department.

Years earlier, Collins was a member of Orson Welles’ Mercury Theater.  It was 80 years ago tonight that the Mercury Theater made its best-know radio project, an adaptation of H.G. Wells’ WAR OF THE WORLDS.

A few years later, the Mercury Theater made its movie debut, in “Citizen Kane,” wherein Collins played Boss Jim Gettys.
