Geraldine Fitzgerald was an Oscar nominee and a rising star in Hollywood in the late 1930s, But battles with studio executives began to cost her roles and derailed her career just as it was taking off. She enjoyed a revival in the 1960s, and she continued to work on stage and screen in everything from Arthur to The Golden Girls. We'll hear her as a woman whose husband is obsessed with one of history's most infamous duels in "A Friend to Alexander" (originally aired on CBS on June 15, 1944). Then, she co-stars with Orson Welles in Agatha Christie's "Philomel Cottage" (originally aired on CBS on October 7, 1943). Finally, we'll hear Geraldine Fitzgerald in "Artist to the Wounded," a wartime romantic drama from The Cavalcade of America (originally aired on NBC on May 7, 1945).
