  • Papers of a radio and television producer-director and his actress-wife. Radio material which is the most complete aspect of the collection, includes files of annotated scripts and correspondence on The Adventures of Sam Spade, Philip Morris Playhouse, Suspense, and other series which Spier produced and directed for CBS. Television files include many scripts which he wrote including an award-winning effort for The Untouchables (ABC). Also present are extensive files on Willy (NBC), which he produced and which starred June Havoc. Her career is also represented in Lady Possessed (Republic, 1952), which Spier also directed, and by a small group of other motion picture and theater scripts.
