Les Guthman's acclaimed feature-length documentary about Norman Corwin, the legendary writer, producer and director during the Golden Age of Radio. "Norman Corwin played the resounding chords of the American conscience," wrote the Hollywood Reporter in its review of the film. "When you peruse the cultural landscape, there are not many folks who have achieved the acclamation of national treasure." "Corwin's plays were innovative ... and daring," wrote the New York Times in its review. The film includes excerpts from his famous radio broadcasts, whose casts included Orson Welles, Jimmy Stewart, James Cagney, Groucho Marx, Judy Garland and Humphrey Bogart. "There is no actor on the stage, on the screen, or in radio," Charles Laughton said in the 1940s, "who would not drop what he is doing to be in one of Norman Corwin's radio shows. We all look up to him as a writer of the first importance, as one of the most important writers in any medium in America today." Also included are appearances by William Shatner, Norman Lear, Ray Bradbury and Charles Kuralt.moreless
