Today's radio feature is the Lux Radio Theater's presentation of The Unguarded Hour from December 4, 1944. The intro & curtain call are interesting in that they touch on Lieutenant Commander Robert Montgomery's Naval service. He's recently been released from four years of service from the Naval Reserve, having been awarded the Bronze star for his service on the destroyer USS Barton during the raid on Normandy on D-Day. CB Demille also tells of the story of the Barton (and Bob) being spared during battle due to an unexploded German shell that landed on the deck.
Back to the story, Robert Montgomery plays a barrister that's been blackmailed. Unknown to him, his wife, Laraine Day, has also been blackmailed. In both cases, the blackmail was over love letters to his past girlfriend. A murder occurs and all evidence is pointing to Bob. The loveable Roland Young also appears in this presentation.
