Karloff to Launch Own Radio Spook Series

Lugosi and Lorre To Be ‘Partners In Crime’

By SI STEINHAUSER

Are you among the mourners of “Lights Out?” Have you been crying in the night because there were no bedtime mysteries to keep you awake and give you nightmares? You’ll be sorry. No less a bad man than Boris Karloff is coming to radio with his own show and the title is enough without a program: “Creeps By Night.”

Movieland’s No. 1 horror will narrate and star in a series to be launched next Tuesday night at 10:30 following an otherwise grand evening of swell comedy. To give it as bloodthirsty a beginning as he can think up he has chosen for his first broadcast “The Voice of Death,” the story of the voice of a dead man which guides his widow to the commission of murders by wholesale.

After that Mr. Karloff will summon Bela Lugosi, Peter Lorre, Laird Cregar, Raymond Massey and other “partners in crime” to the mike, to make things as bad as possible, in a spooky sort of way. Mark down as sucker No. 1 for mystery stories this guy, who’d give up his sleep for a Karloff broadcast.
