Mr. President
Volume 1
"These are little-known stories of the men who have lived in The White House...dramatic, exciting events that you and I so rarely hear..."
"Mr. President" , a dramatic series that premiered over ABC Radio on June 26, 1947 and was heard until September 23, 1953, established its novel premise pretty much from the first broadcast: it dramatized weekly events in the lives of the various men who at one time held the highest office in the land, the Presidency of the United States of America. Created by Robert G. Jennings, "Mr. President's" 'hook' was that during each episode, the name of the President was withheld until a brief epilogue at the program's end.
Edward Arnold was the star of "Mr. President"Essaying the role of the Commander-in-Chief was character actor Edward Arnold (right), a popular performer with audiences -- even if subtlety wasn't necessarily his stock-in-trade. Keeping Edward Arnold's excesses in check were a vibrant group of supporting actors including such Radio Row stalwarts as Betty Lou Gerson, Lurene Tuttle, Bea Benaderet, Hans Conried, Parley Baer and Joseph Kearns. It is the unusually fine writing, however, that separates the program from its contemporaries: scribes Jean Holloway, Bernard Dougall and Ira Marion crafted first-rate scripts. (On occasion, though, the program would deviate from its normal regimen and either present repeat performances or, as a change of pace, a dramatization of Edward Everett Hale's classic short story, "The Man Without a Country," which is featured in this collection.)
