What!!! No brandy?

Randy Mc

One of the most interesting episodes of CBSRMT. It has supernatural elements, romance, a bit of spying too. The only drawback is McCambridge's casting as the young Margot. Her voice sounds like that of an old woman. This is the same problem when she was cast in Dracula and Give the Devil His Due. Her voice acting is nice, but just mistcast.

James

I agree, James. In fact, I find the quality of McCambridge's voice in CBSRMT episodes to be so unpleasant that I don't listen to any with her in the cast; especially as she was too often cast as a young woman. She was no doubt a talented actor, but she was well past the age to be playing the ingenue -- even just the voice -- by the time CBSRMT.

Actually I should say that MM's character is something of an eternal,an old soul made apparently younger in stages due to an infernal bargain. Perhaps her voice can be taken as reflecting the true age of the character (if we wish to so imagine!)

While it was perhaps peculiar to cast McCambridge as younger characters when all manner of roles were available on CBSRMT (though I found her effective as both young and old in CARMILLA)she was such a gifted actor and radio legend I value every opportunity to discover her work. Besides,her character here begins as middle aged. Orson Welles at one time called her the greatest living radio actress and for good reason. I urge listeners to seek her golden age performances. she was a frequent guest on INNER SANCTUM for instance.
