THE LIVES OF HARRY LIME & MY FAVORITE HUSBAND


Orson Welles revived the character of Harry Lime (who dies at the end of the film “The Third Man”) in the radio series “The Lives of Harry Lime.” In the radio show, Harry is a ne’er do well con man, as opposed to a cold-blooded killer. In tonight’s episode, he’s conning some young lovelies with a fake painting. Then, Lucille Ball stars as Liz Cooper, the proto-Lucy Ricardo, on “My Favorite Husband.” In classic Liz / Lucy style, a simple request to some neighbors balloons into a classic fiasco.
