Radio Play (1943) - The Unsinkable Molly Brown

Postby Aaron2010 » Sun Nov 03, 2013 4:12 pm

In 1943 the radio station WMT aired a play called "Unsinkable Mrs. Brown". The voice of Mrs. Brown was played by film actress Tallulah Bankhead. Has anyone heard this radio play? I found this advert in a newspaper.

Cedar Rapids Tribune

April 29th 1943

Tallulah Bankhead stars as Molly the "Unsinkable Mrs. Brown," gun-totin' dowager-heroine of the Titanic sinking in 1912, a dramatization of that disaster on "Radio Reader's Digest," Sunday May 2. Hear over WMT 8 to 8.30 pm. In colorful western twang, Miss Bankhead plays the real Mrs Brown, portraying her part in saving all her companions, men and women, in the Titanic lifeboat. The "Unsinkable Mrs. Brown" kept the men rowing the lifeboat at the point of a pistol she had hidden in her sable muff. When all were rescued she shouted: "I'm unsinkable!" The name stuck the rest of her life.
