Academy Award Theater was a half-hour dramatic anthology series presenting radio adaptations of movies that had been nominated for or had won Academy Awards. The series often used the original film casts and directors. The series premiered March 30, 1946 with Jezebel starring Bette Davis. While the show was a success with critics and audiences alike, it went off the air after only nine months and 39 episodes due to the heavy demands of churning out quality radio scripts based on feature-length films. The high cost of producing the series was also a factor in its early cancellation.
