An anthology of famous movie stories, using the original film stars whenever possible.  All of the plays on Academy Award had something in common: one or more of the players or the film on which the script was based had won or been nominated for the Oscar.  The opening show was Jezebel, with Bette Davis; high spots included Stagecoach (Claire Trevor, Randolph Scott, May 4), The Maltese Falcon (Humphrey Bogart, Sydney Greenstreet, Mary Astor, July 3), and Suspicion (Cary Grant, Oct. 30).  The House of Squibb, a drug firm, footed a stiff bill: up to $4,000 for the stars and $1,600 a week to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for use of the title.  The production had all the class of a Lux or Screen Guild show.  For Stagecoach, four soundmen (Gene Twombly, Jay Roth, Clark Casey, and Berne Surrey) were brought in to create the illusion of the racing coach.   But the tariff took its toll, and after 39 weeks the series was scrapped.
