MARK TWAIN SERIES: CBS Radio Mystery Theater produced a total of eleven adaptations from Mark Twain's works for the show; nine were written by Sam Dann with Ian Martin writing only two. [0119] The Real Printer's Devil [0408] Tom Sawyer, Detective [0409] Is He Living or Is He Dead? [0410] The Belated Russian Passport [0411] A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court [0412] The Man that Corrupted Hadleyburg [0413] The Stolen White Elephant [0414] The Mysterious Stranger [0937] The Dead House [0984] A Curious Experience [1002] The Goddess Caper** The show always tried to kick off each new year of their Anniversary (in early January) with a weeklong series written by the same author, and so Sam Dann wrote episodes 408 through 414 to launch the start of their third season. **1002 was based on “The Legend of the Capitoline Venus”

A fairly good story by Mark Twain. I don't think I've read the original of this one, but it is certainly a story from him. "Just trust in providence"

Fun episode! I was not familiar with the original Mark Twain version so reaching the end was a real thrill!

Pamela

great acting and wonderful sound effects makes the listener feel like they are in 19th century Russia

I swear the older American was also the voice of Yukon Cornelius from Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer (1964). The AP said that Yukon was as actually voiced by Larry D. Mann who died in 2014.
