Great episode... Doe anyone know the actual stock music used for this specific episode... I know that most of the stock music used for most of these episodes are from Bernard Herman and the Twilight Zone... but I would very much would like to know the specific music used for this episode.. would greatly appreciate any information or referrals to this question.... Thanks!

Interesting and unique perspective. Shows her delusional view of Adolf. Bravo to James Agate Jr. who wrote one of the best CBSRMT episodes ever. Here, you have a WWII story where Eva Braun was friends with the Dictator for many years, married to him for about 40 hours, and then widowed for several seconds before she took her life with cyanide poisoning. They were 23 years apart, but a relationship that was barely mentioned in history books. He was a vegetarian, a non-smoker, way too obsessed with perfection, and what's weird is that he became sweet & tender ONLY to Eva because she didn't oppose to him or his beliefs. Not only that, there's an actual photo of Eva dressed up like Al Jolson from the 1927 film THE JAZZ SINGER. These 2 were a perfect match made in the Inferno. Anyway, the voice talents of Roberta Maxwell (as Eva Braun) and Louis Turenne (as Hitler) were dynamic. Let's not forget Joan Shay (as Isle Braun: Eva's sister) and Robert Dryden (as Martin Borden) for they too were superb in their roles. The music & sound effects made this story epic at its finest, felt like you were actually there on April 30th, 1945 when the 2 were minutes away from death. As for Tammy Grimes, she did a masterful job as host. Not only she told important facts about the relationship, but her Epilogue where she talked about the movers & shakers that have changed the world, is the most pensive thing for us fans to wonder about our whole lives. This is one episode that history buffs will enjoy listening to!


This was an absolutely amazing episode for all of the wrong reasons. Though it romanticized the world's worst dictator whom was responsible for the genocide of 6 million Jews, it did attempt to capture the final moments of Adolf Hitler and Ava Braughn's life. A great listen--5 stars.

GETTING READY TO TAKE THE AUDIO JOURNEY WITH CBSMT PLAYERS. .... BTW, Thank you for sharing these programs,they bring me back to 1974 - 1982 when I was in grades 4-11th and listening to WBBM Radio Chicago's broadcast of CBSMT. In those earlier years I'd be listening with my best friend Steve G.T. of Evanston Illinois and we'd be so scared, and we'd mimic the theme music and E.G.Marshall's "Come In, Welcome". Here's to the memories Steve, God rest his soul. Sincerely; John C. K.

A good episode and good commentary on those who want power over others at 49:20. These shows had astute observations of human nature something I was not able to find by 1990 in any kind of entertainment.Even in 1982 these people were old school entertainers and had quality views about entertainment.I liked the commercial about sleeping bags at 32:00, still applicable for today. I have to think campers were listening to Mystery Theater back then as I did in the past year or two.


The juxtaposition of how tenderly Hitler spoke of being a vegetarian because of the cruelty to animals, when we know the history of his rule of terror on human beings. And then, how he reluctantly tested the cyanide on his beloved dog, convincing himself, that his dog wouldn't want to live on without Hitler. Were there really women who found Hitler ruggedly handsome (or were they drunk on his power)? This show does not deal with Hitler the monster - we need to fill in that from our own knowledge. I wonder how this show would sound to someone who is unaware of the history. Intriguing to me, at least, to contemplate that.
