    On January 15, 1947, the tortured body of a beautiful young woman was found in a vacant lot in Hollywood. Elizabeth Short, the Black Dahlia, a young Hollywood hopeful, had been brutally murdered. Her murder sparked one of the greatest manhunts in California history.

    Craig F. Noell says: "Great naration"
    "Fictional Portrayal"
    Overall

    This story is a fictional portrayal of the lifestyle, murder and police operations at the time of the Black Dahlia murder. It gives a very good sense of the corruption present amongst the peace officers in Los Angeles at this time. Unfortunately, very little is truly presented regarding the investigation of this horrendous crime and is really a social commentary. It is insightful into the social interaction between the police force and public, but gives very little insight into the crime other than the a description of the bloody murder scene.

    This is a signature title in The Colonial Radio Theatre's meticulously researched series of accurate historical programs. Lt. Col. George A. Custer leads his 7th Cavalry in the Valley of the Little Big Horn and into eternity in this truly spectacular audio dramatization. It is our heartfelt hope that we have done justice to the events of June 25, 1876. It was a horrific battle, which saw no true victors. Custer's command lost their lives. The Plains Indians lost their way of life.

    Overall

    The dramatization is well done. Attempts to reinact actual conversations and exclamations provide a sense of what the chaos and situation may have felt like, yet I believe much is underplayed and excluded. Key elements to the actual events have been left out which would add to understanding the total picture of this event. The two pronged attack and the tragic result when one attack retreated is not presented.
