Lights Out

Post by Harlow Wilcox on 7/3/2018, 10:12 pm

Here is an episode of Lights Out that should be a huge upgrade. I know the version I had for years was horrible. This is soooo much better.

Lights Out 46-08-10 The Ghost On The Newsreel Negative

Does anyone have any idea which Lights Out episode this is? It's from the 1930's and is a half-hour long. Unfortunately the opening and closing are missing. One of the characters mentions that April 10 was "a week ago today." Could this be a missing episode from April 17, 1935?

Hi BobbyP:

I have listened to it and I think you might be right about the possible date.

I have looked through all the logs that I could find and I couldn't find any mention of the characters in the show anywhere in the write ups.

There doesn't seem to be any shows available prior to 1936 as well.

Anyone else got any thoughts? The sound quality sounds like it might be an earlier episode as well.

Best regards

I found an article in the Chicago Tribune of April 19, 1935. It mentions that Joan Winters "portrayed the countess in Wednesday evening's show."

On the show I attached, the female guest is identified as "Countess von Drachenstein."

I think that confirms it.

I found another article; this one from the April 10, 1935, Chicago Tribune. According to it, the show is called "Play Without a Name." It says "Wyllis Cooper couldn't think of a title that would do its horrors justice."

Another great find Bobby!

Play Without a Name is the official title I would say

The database for the Paley Center in New York calls it "A Room for the Night." See the entry on this page: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Paley says the broadcast was April 18, 1935 Thursday 12:30 AM, but that seems to be the East coast time. It would've aired April 17, 1935 Wednesday 11:30 PM in Chicago, the series' point of origin.

"Play Without a Name" was the previous week's scheduled episode. "A Room for the Night" was technically the NBC network premiere, although the series had apparently aired on some NBC stations outside of Chicago the previous year.

emruf7, quite right about that title; I didn't read the article correctly. I guess "A Room for the Night," is the correct title, although I can't find any articles to confirm it. By the way, the second show of the network series (April 24, 1935) was entitled "The Phantom Ship."

Great Link emruf7

Could probably get a lot of the missing episodes listed in an updated log from here.
