Kirk Douglas played heroes, villains, and morally ambiguous characters in between in a career that spanned six decades. He earned three Oscar nominations and turned in intense and memorable performances in Spartacus, Gunfight at the OK Corral, Seven Days in May, and many more. But in 1947, Kirk Douglas was a rising Hollywood star when he made two visits to “radio’s outstanding theater of thrills.” We’ll hear him as a man plotting to keep a newfound fortune out of his wife’s hands in “Community Property” (originally aired on CBS on April 10, 1947) and as a washed-up writer who hopes to pass off a master’s work as his own in “The Story of Markham’s Death” (originally aired on CBS on October 2, 1947).
