Just discovered this through Wikipedia. I was prepared for a cheesy, homemade thing that butchered the real episode. I couldn't have been more mistaken. If I hadn't known better, I would have sworn that this was an actual 1950's era TV version of Quiet, Please. Hope you enjoy...

One of the people making it sent me a link at the time it came out. It was interesting, nicely done.

Speaking of Quiet Please on TV, I notice Wyllis Cooper borrowed heavily from a Quiet Please episode for the Lights Out TV series:

Yes, this was an interesting piece. I saw something recently about a similar film that makes use of a vintage radio show as its soundtrack.

That "Dead Man's Coat" episode of the Lights Out TV series is currently online here:

I can't prove it, but it looks to me like it might be an adaptation of one of Cooper's lost 1930s Lights Out scripts. You could easily reverse-engineer it into a radio play. Incidentally, there's a scene at the cemetery with a pair of bit players and the older actor with the eyeglasses is none other than Harvey Hays who starred on Cooper's "Empire Builders" and "Whitehall 1212" radio series.
