Only a year removed from the end of World War 2, the summer of 1946 brought radio listeners "tales of espionage, manhunts
and high adventure" with Joseph Schildkraut starring in Intrigue. Joseph SchildkrautEight episodes of the summer sustainer were originally planned but
only seven aired. The August 14 episode was supposed to air on the first anniversary of V-J (Victory over Japan) was replaced with a show commemorating
the first anniversary. According to The Billboard on August 3, 1946, sales for the summer sustainers was slow and, as a result, the Intrigue series ended
after seven episodes. (The final episode was probably never heard because CBS went back to it's regular fall programming. ) This collection of three
recordings are all known recording of this rare series to be in circulation. Schildkraut, an Academy Award winning actor, was supposed to star in all
eight episodes but ended up appearing in only six (only the radio gods knows why!). Other famous actors to appear on Intrigue included Vincent Price.
The show appeared on the CBS network Wednesdays beginning July 24 and ending September 11.
