What to expect
These are the stories of strange wills made by strange people. Men and women who defy and defile every moral law of respectability and decency to satisfy a mad desire!
Distinguished Hollywood actor Warren William starred in Strange Wills, a mystery-drama series produced and syndicated by Teleways Radio Productions in 1946. William portrayed probate attorney Warren Francis O’Connell, and the stories were told through him as executor of the “strange wills made by strange people.” Strange Wills are stories based upon actual wills gathered from courts from all over the world. Names, places, and time have been changed so that no reflection can fall on any person or persons living or dead. Only the sins remain—deadly sins that cry out from the depths of the grave for vengeance. The stories involved cases of every kind and featured many of Hollywood’s best supporting actors, including Carlton Young, Lurene Tuttle, William Conrad, Marvin Miller, John Brown, Peggy Webber, and Howard Culver, with music by Del Castillo. Dead men’s wills are often strange. We cannot attempt to understand them or try to find the answers, we can but tell the story … Enjoy sixteen interesting cases from Strange Wills!
