OLD TIME RADIO - 1 CD - 3 mp3 - Total Time: 1:21:36
The Adventures of Topper premiered over NBC on June 7th, 1945 starring Roland Young as Cosmo Topper, Hope Emerson as Topper's wife Malvina , and Paul Mann and Frances Chaney as the ghosts of George and Marion Kerby, Topper's twin nemeses. The series was originally scheduled for the thirteen weeks that The Dinah Show Show was on vacation. Directed by Kirby Hawks and written by Stanley Wolf, the Radio version of the Topper franchise capitalized on the popularity of the original Topper film starring Roland Young as Topper and Cary Grant and Constance Bennett as The Kerbys. Also appearing as recurring performers were Ed Latimer and Tony Barrett.
The Radio version of Topper was bright, cleverly written and well performed. Stanley Wolf's scripts were an equal mix of slapstick, irony, and smart dialogue. Roland Young, nearing his 60's at the time, wore the role of Cosmo Topper like a comfortable old suit. Hope Emerson brought a somewhat more stern and impatient flavor to the role of Cosmo's wife and Paul Mann and Frances Chaney were both delightful as The Kerbys.
Though initially planned for only thirteen weeks, the series was well enough received that after Dinah Shore returned to her regular Fall timeslot, 'Topper' was extended for two more episodes to cover the last two weeks of the Summer hiatus of The Burns and Allen Program, for a total of fifteen episodes of The Adventures of Topper in all. The last two programs of the series simply aired an half hour earlier.
