Big Town

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/3/37/Bigtown38.jpgBig Town was a popular long-run radio drama later adapted to both television and a comic book published by DC Comics. The radio program aired from 1937 to 1952. Edward G. Robinson had the lead role of Steve Wilson from 1937 to 1942. Claire Trevor was Wilson's society editor sidekick Lorelei Kilbourne, with Ona Munson taking over that role in 1940. Edward J. Pawley portrayed Wilson from 1942 until 1952 when Walter Greaza was heard as Wilson in the final episodes in the radio series.

  1. Edward Pawley sounded so much better than Edward G. Robinson in the role of "Steve Wilson" ! In person, he also looked the part much better than Robinson. His melliflous baritone voice served him well in his roles on Broadway, the movies, and radio.
