Leonidas Witherall runs a prestigious boys school, writes a popular detective series, and is a dead ringer for William Shakespeare. He’s also an amateur detective who can’t help stumbling into mystery and murder. From the pages of novels by Alice Tilton comes The Adventures of Leonidas Witherall, starring celebrated stage actor Walter Hampden as Witherall. Aided by his housekeeper Mrs. Mullet, Leonidas solves cases and gets double takes from theatre fans. We’ll hear “The Corpse Meets a Deadline,” originally aired on Mutual on April 22, 1945.
