277CBSRMT750227ThemA man has been acquitted for charges of manslaughter. One person monitering the well publicized trial seems to think the man was falsley acquitted. Being a retired judge, he feels it his duty to take matters into his own hands. The man is invited to a luncheon, he presumes it is to be a victory party. The old judge has other plans that sound a little more disturbing.
The worried wife talks to police, but three days later, there’s still no sign of her husband. The police do notice a trend of missing persons who had just been acquitted of various crimes. There’s definitley something going on, but all they need is just the right break to figure it out. They get it when the son has something to say.
Meanwhile, is there any hope for our man, and the others that are also being held captive? Some of his captives have been there for years.
Is the old judge right? Is he being fair? I suppose it’s all a matter of opinion, however he is indeed breaking the law when he takes it into his own hands to apply his own breed of justice.
So will the testimony of the son help to free his missing dad? Will the old judge keep his little prison an force? With little to hope for, what hope is there for our man to escape? All the answers are revealed in act 3 of our radio play, so stay tuned, and listen in.
In the mid 1970’s the CBS Radio Mystery Theater was produced. If it had hopes of bringing back the glory days of radio drama, it didn’t work, although the show had a long and successful run. Hosted by EG Marshal, and using all the best voice actors both from the old days of radio, and a new breed of acting tallent.
Gene Wilder and Peter Boyle. Puttin on the Ritz.
