LIFE WITH LUIGI
LIFE WITH LUIGI
Longtime Hollywood character actor J. Carrol Naish became a star in his own right on radio’s Life with Luigi after nearly two decades toiling in the background in such films as Beau Geste, House of Frankenstein and the Batman movie serial. The native New Yorker of Irish descent finally won fame as "the little Italian immigrant" who each week wrote of his American adventures to his mama in Italy. Life with Luigi aired from September 21, 1948 through March 3, 1953 on radio, and the radio cast briefly did double duty in a short-lived 1952 television version.
