Lux Radio Theatre was a long-run classic radio anthology series, broadcast

seasons before it began adapting films. These hour-long programs were 
performed live before a studio audiences. The series became the most

years and continued on television as the Lux Video Theatre through most
of the 1950s. The primary sponsor of the show was Unilever through its
Lux Soap brand.

Lux Radio Theatre
strove to feature as many of the original stars of the
original stage and film productions as possible. Cecil B. DeMille took over
as the host on June 1, 1936, continuing until January 22, 1945.

Francis Gary Powers
(August 17, 1929 – August 1, 1977)

On August 1, 1977, Powers had been covering bush fires in Santa
Barbara County
in the KNBC helicopter (above) and was heading
back from flying over them. As he returned, the Bell 206 Jet Ranger
helicopter ran out of fuel and crashed in nearby Encino, several
miles short of its intended landing site at Burbank Airport, killing
Powers instantly. The National Transportation Safety Board report
attributed the probable cause of the crash to pilot error, poor
fuel management.
