GUESS WHAT FOLKS? My former comment "RMJ tours that could expand use of the city airport and B&Bs that are friendly to RMJ to bring people here for a vacation." On the evening news they reported that a RMJ tour company is now going to do this in Denver with a tour bus that will take you from Denver to the ski slopes with as much bud as you can smoke along the way!
Why are we not doing this in Colorado Springs? Our reputation needs to be upgraded from the conservative status that we have held for decades and if we are willing to accept this change we will progress into the 21st century!!!
Just about all of the big movies of the 40s were also performed on the radio by the starring actors, often introduced by the movies' directors. If a movie turned into a hit it was performed again using other actors in the lead roles. The radio plays never ran more than an hour, so material was always cut. There was more than one version of The Maltese Falcon broadcast over the airwaves, including a version that runs only 30 minutes long.
The production isn't trying to rival the movie. What theatrical production could?? A radio production of this was performed the year the movie came out; Stewart and Reed both reprised their roles in said broadcast. Do you think THAT production rivaled the movie? That's not the purpose. It's to use the radio genre to give a different twist to the story. Both can be enjoyed without detracting from either's merits. Different isn't bad, it's just different.
Good luck in your endeavors, it is not easy work. I will write about you in my blog http://alfacoffee.blogspot.com/
