THIS IS MY BEST: I WILL NOT GO BACK (RADIO)

Summary

One in this series of drama programs. This program features Milton Geiger's original radio play inspired by President Franklin D. Roosevelt's death. In his introduction, Orson Welles dedicates the show to Roosevelt's hope that the upcoming conference to form the United Nations will lead to a lasting peace. The play, narrated by Welles, is "a broad and general discussion" in prose-poem format of mankind's impulses toward violence and freedom. Beginning with the creation of the world and including biblical references, the script emphasizes the enormous losses of both human life and natural resources that resulted from World War II, and the need to create lasting peace through an international organization of governments. Includes commercials for Cresta Blanca wine.
