Old Gold Comedy Theater


This old time radio show aired for only one season on NBC, starting October 29, 1844 and ending on June 10, 1945. The advertising agency, Lennen and Mitchell, were looking for a comedy series that they could use to promote Old Gold cigarettes. The show used the same format as Lux Radio Theatre. Harold Lloyd, who was a star of silent films was hired to host the show.  Because of the half-hour formatting, the show was too short to use all of the original movie script and too much was cut out to get the listening audience fully involved in the story.
