Voyage of the Scarlet Queen

----------- --- ----- ------------- ---------

Series Description:

THE VOYAGE OF THE SCARLET QUEEN was a short-lived adventure series
heard over Mutual stations. It starred Ellot Lewis as Captain Philip
Carney, master of the ketch Scarlet Queen and Ed Max as Mr. Gallagher.
Some other notable Hollywood radio actors who made appearences in the
series were Jeff Chandler, William Conrad, John Dehner, Verna Felton,
Bill Johnstone, Jack Kruschen, Cathy Lewis, Roddy McDowell and Ben

The voyage starts in San Francisco and the Scarlet Queen travels
westward in the Pacific. The first episode is from San Francisco to
Honolulu. The shows track the voyage from port to port. The action
of one episode can carry over into the next episode, but the series
should not be considered a serial. Each show is a complete 30-minute
adventure. Listen closely, as the sound effects really help transport
the listener to exotic Pacific locations.

The producer for the entire series was James Burton. Writers were
Gil Doud and Robert Tallman. Sound effects were done by Ray Kemper,
Bill James and Tom Hanley. The musical score was by Richard Aurandt.

Log Comments:
[UPDATED INFO From Member Cassandra M.]OTR legend Howard Duff played the
ship's captain in the pilot episode while Elliot Lewis was relegated to
the role of the ship's First Mate Mr. Gallagher.

Some dates differed between catalogs. Although most titles matched
from source to source, there were a few that didn't. The most common
found titles were used here. Two shows appear to be missing at this
time, but the titles were given in Jerry Haendiges' listing.

THE LOG OF THE BLACK PARROT appeared in only the Radio Showcase
catalog, so the broadcast date still needs to be verified.
