At one time, Madeleine Carroll was the world's highest-paid actress, but she gave up Hollywood stardom to devote her life to helping children displaced by war and servicemen wounded on the battlefield. The English-born star appeared in Alfred Hitchcock's The 39 Steps and co-starred with the likes of Gary Cooper, Ronald Colman, and Bob Hope before she committed herself to her charitable works. We'll hear Ms. Carroll in her one and only Suspense show "The Morrison Affair" - a story of a woman who steals a baby and tries to pass the child off as her own (originally aired on CBS on September 2, 1948). Plus, she co-stars with Charles Boyer in a Lux Radio Theatre adaptation of The Ghost and Mrs. Muir (originally aired on CBS on December 1, 1947).
