Friday's Favorite OTR

Favorite Story: "Mr. Shakespeare" 4/10/48

A woman with magical powers is hired by a movie studio to raise Shakespeare from the dead. But the Bard of Avon turns out to dislike working as a studio writer.

Vincent Price sounds like he's having a ball playing Shakespeare. The story is mostly a parody on making movies that would appeal to the general public. There's any number of great lines ("What"s wrong with Abbot and Costello?" asks Shakespeare at one point. "I would have loved having them at the Globe.") and the supporting cast is top notch.
