Possessing one of the all-time great voices of the radio era, Hans Conried was equally effective in comedies and dramas as characters both old and young from all parts of the world. We'll hear him as the king's executioner in "The Groom of the Ladder" (originally aired on CBS on March 13, 1956), a refugee looking for a new life in America in "Freedom This Way" (originally aired on CBS on January 27, 1957), and as a black marketeer trying to stay out of sight of the Nazis in "Crossing Paris" (originally aired on CBS on June 2, 1957). Plus, Conried plays a traveling actor with a deadly past in "Shakespeare" from Gunsmoke (originally aired on CBS on August 23, 1952).
