Free World Theater
With the coming of the Second World War, writer-director Arch Oboler turned away from outre experimental drama and moved to straight-ahead propaganda, devoting several series of original plays to the Allied cause. One of the most notable of these series was Free World Theatre, a 1943 Blue Network exercise devoted to dramatizations based on statements offered by leading figures from the United States, Great Britain, the Soviet Union, Free France, China, and prominent exiles from occupied Europe. Oboler farmed most of the script assignments out to members of the Radio Writers Guild, but reserved the directing chores for himself, drawing his casts from the cream of the Hollywood crop. The series ran for twenty-six weeks, with nineteen of the scripts published in hardcover in 1944.
