Adding to our collection of old time radio shows about the dangers of ventriloquist's dummies, here is an episode of Blackstone, The Magic Detective called "The Educated Dummy."
In this story, Blackstone and his assistant, Rhoda, are playing a charity benefit. Rhoda loves their dressing room, but she isn't impressed by the ventriloquist act that goes on before them. In her opinion, the act is "pure corn."
Rhoda is right, but that corny ventriloquist just may have a better trick up his sleeve than Blackstone.
This twelve minute mystery aired on Halloween in 1948, but it isn't scary. Ed Jerome played Blackstone and Fran Carlon played Rhoda.
This episode aired on October 31, 1948.
