Before we get to the feature presentation, which was remade most recently as We Bought a Zoo, we bring you a pair of old-time radio jewels.
First things first, and the reason I came up with this opening: I didn’t know until just today that Basil Rathbone had started in a comedy/mystery radio show entitled Tales of Fatima. At first, I was wondering what the hell Rathbone was doing dramatizing stories of the apocalypse that were told to three youngsters in Portugal. But no, apparently Fatima was the brand of cigarettes that sponsored the show. Then next, I was amused to hear that Rathbone is playing a fictionalized version of himself.
