Background

The Screen Guild programs were some of Radio's longest running charity programs. Why charity? From the outset, the various Screen Guild programs were conceived, produced and broadcast for the express purpose of raising money for the Motion Picture Relief Fund. Over the years, the Motion Picture Relief Fund appeal extended to raising funds for a Country Home and Hospital for retired, ill, indigent, or destitute Motion Picture Industry artists.

The history of the Motion Picture Relief Fund is particularly poignant. Orginally conceived in 1921 by Mary Pickford, Douglas Fairbanks, Charlie Chaplin and several other prominent Hollywood luminaries, the fund was established in response to recognition of the often brutal grist mill many elements of the early Motion Picture Industry had become. Working conditions were particularly egregious during the Silent Era, when the early studios were churning out hundreds of features a year and consuming twice as many artists in the process. Conditions were particularly ruthless when it came to working conditions. Early silent players often worked fourteen to sixteen hours, seven days a week on various sets, with few breaks, no applicable regulations and no unions to support the artists and technicians. If an artist or technician couldn't keep up with the pace, they were readily replaced by a long line of awaiting extras, hopefuls, and apprentices more than happy to double or triple their pay--in spite of the sweat shop conditions.

The relative handful of stars throughout that era were just as susceptible to getting ground under as the supporting players. But the pay scale for the stars was exponentially commensurate with their popularity and public demand. So it was that the stars could make thousands of dollars a month, while their supporting counterparts might make as little as a hundred dollars a week and be delirious to have it. This wasn't particularly novel to the Motion Picture Industry. The vaunted free marketplace that Republicans and Federalists have promoted throughout American History was working--in their view. And why shouldn't it? It was the same in virtually every industry. Child labor laws had only recently been implemented after a thirty year struggle and early union organizing efforts were still being met with Federally backed armed resistance. Industrialists of every industry from Hollywood to New York were paying their respective Senators, Representatives, Governors, mayors, assemblymen, police forces, and political functionaries very handsomely to keep the free marketplace sufficiently greased to their advantage.

The free marketplace then--as now--simply meant the law of jungle, survival of the fittest, and to the rich go the spoils--irrespective of how the rich got rich in the first place, which in those days was almost never through industry, ingenuity, or enterprise. Then, as always, there's was no room for morality in the free marketplace. It's simply not a factor. Indeed, morality is simply an impediment to the free marketplace. Of course the Motion Picture Industry wasn't the only bad actor by a long-shot, but it was rapidly becoming the most visible.

And so it was that thousands of early players and technicians fell on particularly hard times once their brief but brutal careers prematurely ended; as often from exhaustion and mental anguish as from poor health conditions aggravated by the relentless demand to keep up or be cast aside [no pun intended]. As is so often the case, the vast majority of the artists abused by the system simply disappeared into obscurity. But on rare occasions the story of a particularly famous artist, director, or producer would surface in the tabloids and public outrage--or simply schadenfreude--would be piqued. The Motion Picture Industry's dirty little secrets were very aggressively protected by a vast army of private security guards, armed detectives, publicity departments and lawyers. Yet whenever a particularly compelling tale of a destitute artist would surface, some aggressive reporter would invariably get the story out.

The fund took shape very humbly in the beginning. One of Mary Pickford's early attempts to add to the fund involved organizing what amounted to an early Thrift Store, selling her own, and other female artists' donated gowns, dresses, trinkets, and costumes to the public. While it reportedly added some $15,000 to the fund, it eventually closed after a year. Pickford, Fairbanks and Chaplin largesse notwithstanding, a far more organized fund would be the only way to keep up with the rapidly increasing demand on the early fund's limited resources.

At about the same time, influential early artists had formed the Screen Actors' Guild. Fashioned as a logical extension of the Actors' Equity Association (founded 1913), most of the early SAG organizers were long time members of Actors' Equity. Early efforts at collective bargaining for better working conditions didn't gain traction until an industry-wide strike in 1919 got the Industry's attention. With the support of other nascient--but more successful and organized--labor unions, the early AEA strike gained some ground, but the early gains began to fade after the Great Depression hit. Responding to Hollywood's waning Labor priorities, a group of both young and seasoned actors founded the Screen Actors' Guild in 1933. It was the right time for them to organize. The Motion Picture Industry was still reeling and reorganizing after the Stock Market Crash of 1929. Whole studios had been wiped out, or their assets gobbled up for pennies on the dollar by the few surviving studios.

The Screen Actors' Guild gained traction and by the late 1930s had become a force to be reckoned with. The 'Guild' part of the name of the Screen Guild productions is derived from the Screen Actors' Guild. It was the Guild's players that agreed to take often dramatically reduced fees--usually scale or no compensation at all--to appear in the twelve years of various Screen Guild productions for the benefit of their own Motion Picture Relief Fund. The profits realized from the difference between the sponsors' contributions to the programs over the years and the reduced production costs contributed by the performers and technicians went directly to the Motion Picture Relief Fund.

The Guild was understandably proud of their contributions to the fund over the years. Moreso since great demands were being placed on them from their own Government for much of the same time they were contributing their talent and resources to the Screen Guild programs. World War II had them volunteering--or being volunteered--for many of the patriotic variety and drama productions of the early 1940s. Indeed, throughout this period in Entertainment history several stories would surface from time to time about a particular artist's reluctance to give even more to the War effort. But there's only so much many of them could give and still make a meaningful contribution to their own parochial interests--like the Motion Picture Relief Fund.

In that respect this series is often eclipsed by the memory of World War II era entertainment productions. But this effort, more than any other during those years, went directly to support their own fellow artists--and predecessors, mentors, pathfinders and ground-breakers of their industry. The Guild artists had every right to value their contributions to their own, as much as they contributed to the various War efforts and appeals.

Insofar as the details of the various productions over the years are concerned, it goes without saying that the talent, the production values, the writing, and the sound engineering were all top-notch for their time. The staggering array of the Entertainment Industry's finest artists that appeared in these 500+ programs showcased the very finest performers--and performances--in the history of Radio.

The Guild, Gulf Oil and CBS bring The Screen Guild Show to the air

The Gulf Oil Corporation sponsored the first four seasons, from 1939 to the Summer of 1942. The program was called The Gulf Screen Guild Show for its first season, and The Gulf Screen Guild Theatre for Seasons Two through Four. The reasoning for the name change was simply a natural progression in the type of productions the Guild was mounting. The 1st Season was comprised of equal elements of Variety, Musical Comedy, and straight Dramas. And though the 2nd Season opened with yet another Variety Revue, the Variety productions eventually fell away in favor of Musical Comedies, Classic Stage productions and straight Drama productions or movie adaptations. The Gulf Corporation contributed $10,000 per program to The Motion Picture Relief Fund--a total of approximately $1.3M over the course of it's sponsorship. That's approximately $17.4M in today's dollars. That may help to put into perspective the Screen Actors Guild's continued dedication to this series over the years.

The Cosmetics House of Lady Esther took over sponsorship of Seasons Five through Ten, calling their productions Lady Esther Presents The Screen Guild Players. Lady Esther was looking for a prestigious vehicle to promote their new line of ladies' compacts and other feminine requisites and considering the inherent glamour underlying almost every production of The Screen Guild they couldn't have asked for a more appropriate advertising vehicle.

By the time World War II ended, Lady Esther's marketing priorities had changed and so it was that the next two seasons of The Screen Guild's productions were sponsored by R.J. Reynolds and its Camel Cigarettes brand. During this period the productions were named Camel Cigarettes' Screen Guild Players then Camel Cigarettes' Screen Guild Theatre, again recognizing the evolving transition from a mix of dramas, comedies, and musical comedies to straight motion picture adaptations. In addition, the transition to the Camel Cigarettes Screen Guild Theatre also saw the first change in network in eleven years. NBC took the reins of Camel's second season and third seasons of sponsorship of The Screen Guild productions

From the April 10th 1947 edition of the Escanaba Daily Press:

Romance, Romance head 

     In a valiant attempt to bring us radio listeners a little honest escapismm, the Screen Guild Players  (C.B.S. 10 p.m. E.S.T. Mondays) presented the other night that old, almost unbreakable story "Brewster's Millions," which was written by George Barr McCutcheon in 1908, a year that was distinguished by no other important event except the preposterous statements of those two fools at Kittyhawk who claimed their flying machine left the ground.
     It's something of an American classic, this story of a man who had to get rid of $1,000,000 in sixty days in order to inherit $7,000,000.  When McCutcheon wrote it, money was king, monetary success was a religion, and anything was possible to a young man with a head on his shoulders.  For some forty years, "Brewster's Millions" has appealed to man's avarice almost as irresistibly as "The Count of Monte Cristo."  But something has gone out of the old chestnut.
 
     The Screen Guild Players played it straight.  Brewster still sticks his money in a tottering bank, hoping it will close and succeeds only in saving the bank.  He plunges wildly in Wall Street trying to force down a stock which stubbornly insists on going up, and, in the end, as in the book, he winds up on a yacht, whatever that is.
     Back in 1903 or even as late as 1929, the story was implausible but at least possible.  It isn't even that anymore.  In the first place, the banking laws have been so drastically revised that banks don't totter around that way, waiting for a fiction writer to push them over.  And as for manipulating those stocks up and down, the S.E.C. would have been on Brewster's neck before he could have dropped a nickel.  Probably thrown him in jail, which is a terrible place to spend $1,000,000.  Fiction writers better just stay of of Wall Street entirely these days.  When the S.E. C. came in the front door, romance flew out the window.
     Successful romance these days has to come equipped with the lotof streamlined, up-t0-date attitudes that were invented since 1903.  Brewster, for instance, ought to be a sharecropper, ground to bits by the ecnomic system, when his uncle dies and leaves him $7,000,000 provided he tears up his Communist party card.  This precipitates a struggle with his conscience which drives him to drink (his wife has to hide the bottle in a chandelier.)  Finally he goes to a psychiatrist who tells him the real trouble is his subconscious hatred of his wife.  On second thought, maybe "Brewster's Millions" better be left alone.
     As radio drama goes, the Screen Guild program is a pretty good show.  The dramas are old screen fare which generally contain both the strength and weaknesses of the original movies.  Some of the brightest stars in Hollywood are found in these dramas and their salaries are donated to the Motion Picture Relief Fund.  The production is not nearly so meticulous as that of Lux Theater and, I'm afraid, the acting sometimes has a harassed, unrehearsed sound about it.  Still, it's for a worthy cause and in general you'll find it makes a sprightly half hour.

NBC's stewardship of Screen Guild lasted two seasons--one as Camel Cigarettes Screen Guild Players and one as Camel Cigarettes' Screen Guild Theatre, after which they relinquished The Screen Guild productions to the American Broadcasting Company for Season Thirteen, with ABC variously referring to the production as The ABC Screen Guild Players and The ABC Screen Guild Theatre. The production's last two seasons were transcribed and alternately sponsored by GM's Buick Motor Division or sustained by ABC. ABC also increased the program from its twelve-season30-minute format to a full hour-long program.

CBS reacquired the Screen Guild program for seven more months in 1951 and 1952, returning to the 30-minute format, and airing its final Screen Guild program June 29, 1952. CBS unaccountably referred to the Screen Guild Theatre as a double-header: Stars In the Air and Hollywood Sound Stage for its first thirteen programs [see sidebar]. Then just as inexplicably, CBS reacquired the name Screen Guild Theatre for the last seventeen programs, which ran back to back with the remainder of the Stars In the Air run. The on-air proof that both programs are one in the same is contained in the epilogue comments to Ivy, from March 13, 1952, wherein Joan Fontaine is referred to as already having performed in the 'CBS Screen Guild Season'--which could only have been her performance during Hollywood Sound Stage. We emphasize this point, since virtually every other source for 'OTR' information appears to either ignore Stars In the Air and Hollywood Sound Stage as Screen Guild Players derivatives entirely, or simple refers to each of them as isolated, separate programs. Even worse, commercial 'OTR Packagers' purport to provide a complete set of the Screen Guild runs without including these two, key components. That's not only misleading, it's cheating.

The Armed Forces Radio Service also broadcast many of the Screen Guild programs under the following AFRS and AFRTS program names:

  • Screen Guild Theatre [AFRS END-3]
  • Frontline Theatre [AFRS H-5]
  • The Globe Theatre [AFRS H-5] with Herbert Marshall as Host
  • Playhouse 25 [AFRS Network Series and R- Series]
  • AFRTS END 691 Hollywood Sound Stage

The effort wasn't in vain--not for the following sixty years, anyway. The Motion Picture Relief Fund broke ground on the existing facility in Woodland Hills, California in 1948 under the supervision of Jean Hersholt. For the following sixty years the Motion Picture Relief Fund Country Home and Hospital served retired, destitute and health-compromised artists and technicians from every facet of the Entertainment industry, while managing to preserve both the privacy, memory, and legacy of hundreds of the Entertainment world's often most highly celebrated artists. Indeed the discretion and respect offered to the residents was at least as important to them as the excellent care they received.

A Disturbing Postscript

Tragically, as of January 19, 2009, the governing board of the Motion Picture and Television Relief Fund has reluctantly determined that they can no longer sustain the Country Home and Hospital. They've begun the process of relocating all of the residents of the Country Home and Hospital to other long-term care facilities. In an age when the Motion Picture Industry can lavish $20 Million gala events like the Academy Awards and the Emmy Awards on itself, not to mention multi-million dollar promotions of virtually every new film they issue, one has to wonder how they can reconcile abandoning their older, less fortunate brethren. Perhaps this is yet another example of all that we lost with the passing of the thousands of decentralized Radio and Television outlets dotting every community across America throughout the Golden Age.

Power, prestige, wealth, and responsibility in the Entertainment Industry have become distilled, concentrated, consolidated, and compressed down to a relative handful of multi-national corporations with no discernable moral compass, no corporate memory of their roots, no sense of gratitude, nor any concern whatsoever for their heritage. . . Let alone responsibility for the trillions of dollars they've made on the backs of the tens of thousands of actors, technicians and artisans that they often drove into the ground before unions began protecting workers' interests. That's the difference between a Corporate Republic and a Democratic Republic. And so it seems that the free marketplace has triumphed yet again--in the most predictably reprehensible manner.

Please visit the Saving The Lives or Our Own website to learn what you can do about this travesty, if the Motion Picture and Television industries won't.

OTRisms:

All 'revues' in the various programs should be spelled 'Revue' not 'Review'. A Revue is a variety production. A Review is either a military formation, a journalism product, or an assessment of quality, accuracy or some other measure.

Program #387, dated, 48-05-10 should be titled The Bachelor and the Bobbysoxer, not The Bachelor and the Bobysoxer.

Some confusion seems to arise from the three Flesh and Fantasy broadcasts during the Lady Esther run of Screen Guild. The three broadcasts are neither repeats nor rebroadcasts. They are the three episodes of Flesh and Fantasy, broadcast in reverse order of their presentation in the 1943 Universal film:

  • The 'Great Gaspar' episode airs first on 45-04-23
  • The 'Palmist' episode airs second on 45-07-16
  • The 'Mardi Gras Night' episode airs last on 45-09-03

39-10-01 Lima News
Clark Gable, Ginger Rogers, Margaret Lindsay, Jane Darwell, Irving Bacon, and Spencer Charters will present a fast-moving comedy about Hollywood scenarists when they appear as Roger Pryor's guests on the Screen Guild Theatre, Sunday, over WABC at 7:30 p.m. Gable and Miss Rogers are cast as a romantic team for the first time on the air in the comedy-drama, "
Imperfect Lady," which concerns two movie writers who are considered "tops" in ability, temperament, and idiosyncracies. Bitter enemies because of their similar positions in the writing field, they are forced together when a movie producer decides to have them collaborate on a screen play. Neither is able to write a line without first acting out the scene. So between their battles they're usually making torrid love for the sake of the script. The glamorous playground haunts of filmdom's care society, such as the Brown Derby, Santa Anita, the Trocadero, the Colony Club, and Sardi's, serve as back-ground for the original story written especially for the Guild Theatre by Charles Palmer.

Proof of this is the fact that Marlene Dietrich currently is portraying a barroom singer in the western film, "Destry Rides Again."

Brown flew from Hollywood to reach New York in time for the program. Marshall played the starring role in "Accent On Youth" for the screen after the play had a long and successful fun on Broadway. The story concerns an elderly playwright and a brawny young man who vie for the attention and affection of the author's charming young secretary.

A tale of Hollywood irony. Birth of A Nation director D.W. Griffith, puts his arms around Donald Crisp and Jean Hersholt, ca. 1926. 22 years later D.W. Griffith would find himself, destitute and deathly ill, in the very Motion Picture Relief Fund Country Home and Hospital he and Jean Hersholt helped found in 1924.


Jean Hersholt clowns with an old euphonium at the original Motion Picture Relief Fund Country Home, ca. 1939

A gifted artist as well as performer, Jean Hersholt etched this impression of Eric von Stroheim during 1923

Lovingly referred to as Hollywood's Great Dane, Jean Hersholt was one of Hollywood's most respected actors and humanitarians. Hersholt was born into the Performing Arts in Denmark. His family was a well-known Danish stage company family that toured throughout Europe, with Jean performing with them from an early age.

Hersholt graduated from the Copenhagen Art School while continuing to expand his Stage experience. His interest in performing in Film was a natural extension of his already extensive Stage experience. Before emigrating to the U.S. in 1913, Hersholt had already appeared in two German silent films from 1906.

Like all emigrés that preceded him, he came to America seeking opportunity. But given his considerable Stage experience, he chose to proceed directly to Hollywood, rather than stopping off to work on the Broadway Stage. Upon arriving in Hollywood in 1914, he found Hollywoodland of the Silent Era. Beginning as an extra, Hersholt transitioned to small feature roles between 1915 and 1917. Given the assembly line conditions there, in 1917 alone, he'd found himself performing in seventeen small roles.

The 1920s found him in more ambitious roles, but he was being cast primarily as villains of one stripe or another. The vast Stage experience he'd acquired in Denmark and Europe served him well in those usually overly melodramatic villain parts and Hollywood's directors began to take notice.

Indeed, some of his 1920s films are now considered landmark films of the Silent Era. The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse (1921) was Rudolf Valentino's stardom vehicle, and Hersholt also gained wide popularity--and increased income--from its success. But Hersholt's signature role from the 20s was as Marcus Schouler, the lead character in the extraordinary Erich von Stroheim film opus, Greed (1924).

Von Stroheim reportedly plowed through forty-two reels of film for the picture--a total of nine numbing hours of screen time with its first cut. Von Stroheim attempted to cut it to five hours, insisting that it couldn't be cut one frame further. Keep in mind that the era's longest features were at most just over an hour in length. The studio pared the five hours to two for it's ultimate release. The shell of the story was still intact, but entire roles had been excised from the final product. Stroheim's climactic desert scenes survived the axe, but the continuity for much of the film had been destroyed. Jean Hersholt reportedly lost twenty-seven pounds of water weight while filming the desert scenes in Death Valley. Von Stroheim, a stickler for realism wouldn't have it any other way. Indeed, Jean Hersholt was forced to recover from the experience in hospital to regain much needed fluids.

By the late 1920s Jean Hersholt's film roles gained some balance, but his versatility was often called on to interpret roles that began quite virtuously, but ultimately revealed Hersholt as the villain of the piece--yet again. Hersholt had been working for Samuel Goldwyn from 1923 to 1924, for Paramount from 1927 through 1929, and for several other, smaller studios throughout the 1920s.

By the time the Silent Era inevitably ended, Hersholt found himself a veteran--and survivor--of seventy-five films. Jean Hersholt's first all sound film was The Climax (1930). Despite a lingering European accent, the mellow timbre of Hersholt's voice and his camera-friendly face ensured that he'd make the cut in Talkies. He quickly found himself appearing in Grand Hotel (1932), The Mask of Fu Manchu (1932), and Dinner at Eight (1933), all popular sound films with solid ensembles and name stars.

The 1930s found Hersholt debuting in Radio, along with a calendar of nine Film projects. By now in his mid-life, Hersholt's character roles were quickly becoming professors, doctors, elderly nobles of one country or another, and fatherly or grandfatherly parts. Radio was a natural for Hersholt and his Radio audiences fell in love with him almost immediately. That mellow, endearing, wisened voice apparently touched his Radio audience even more deeply than his Film roles had.

Two more fatherly roles in One in a Million (1936), and Heidi (1937) quickly established him as one of Hollywood's most beloved character actors. But it would be his typecasting as a doctor that would shape the remainder of his performing career. The Canadian births of the Dionne quintuplets that rivetted America's attention in the mid-30s and Hollywood got the message. The Quints' real life obstretrician, Dr. Dafoe was translated by Hollywood into Hersholt's Dr. John Luke, in 1936's The Country Doctor.

1938 brought Dr. Luke's sequel in Five of A Kind. Hersholt loved the character enough that he pressed Dr. Dafoe and the studios to develop a series of films based on the character. Dr. Dafoe wasn't keen on the idea, so Hersholt pressed for a Radio version of the character. The character's name, Dr. Christian, was inspired by Hersholt's countryman, Hans Christian Andersen and the rest was both Radio and Film History.

Dr. Christian ran for fifteen years over Radio. RKO's Dr. Christian films eventually comprised six very popular features between 1939 and 1941. Hersholt's kindly, small-town doctor captured America's heart and ultimately cast Jean Hersholt in the role of Dr. Christian for the remainder of his career.

But Jean Hersholt endeared himself even more to his own peers--and the thousands of his peers that had preceded him--with his leadership role in developing and sustaining the Motion Picture Relief Fund. Hersholt's ambitions for the Relief Fund eventually extended to a ten-year quest to develop and build the Fund's Country Home and Hospital. Hersholt's drive, organizational skills and dogged Danish determination were widely acknowledged as the primary force behind the existing Country Home's ultimate ground-breaking in 1948.

Hersholt was also one of the driving influences behind the concept of the Screen Guild series of Radio programs that ran between 1939 and 1952 over all three major Radio networks at one time or another. The concept was to tap the Screen Actors' Guild to volunteer their appearances and skills to a Radio program from which all profits would go directly to the Motion Picture Relief Fund. The program was a great success, bringing virtually every major Film, Stage and Radio star of the era into America's living rooms in the most popular dramas, musical comedies and movie adaptations of the era.

Hollywood acknowledged Jean Hersholt's selfless contributions to their own with two special Academy Awards, the first in 1940, shared with Ralph Morgan, Ralph Block and Conrad Nagel for "outstanding services to the industry during the past year of the Motion Picture Relief Fund and its progressive leadership". The second was awarded to Hersholt in 1950, recognizing Hersholt alone, for "distinguished service to the motion picture industry." By 1956 the second award became a tradition with The Academy, who named the new honorary award, "The Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award" to be given to "an individual in the motion picture industry whose humanitarian efforts have brought credit to the industry."

Sadly, by 1956 Hersholt was himself dying of cancer. The Dr. Christian character he'd pioneered was slated to air over Television. Ziv Studios requested that Hersholt pass the baton to Television's new Dr. Christian, Macdonald Carey. Hersholt bravely complied though by then reduced to a 95-pound former shell of his beloved Dr. Christian character. The broadcast was a poignant, powerful success, launching TV's Dr. Christan to a new, thirty-nine episode run five years after its Radio run had ended. Jean Hersholt succumbed to the cancer he fought so bravely only weeks later. Yet another, final example of Jean Hersholt's willingness to give everything within his power to help other artists and the Industry he loved so dearly.
