Letty Laughs Last
by Daisy Halling.
Characters: Rudolph Programa (An Actor), Letty Cutler (A Typist), The Landlady.
Mind Picture: Rudolph's lodging? in Manchester, typical 'pro. digs', the walls and mantelpiece covered with photograph? of 'stars' of the past, present and future. The table is laid for breakfast. The time is 11.30 a.m. Rudolph, a tall, dark, handsome but limp creature with a large chin, weak mouth, film-star eyes and artificially curly hair, lounges in an armchair, smoking an expensive cigarette and reading the Stage.
Letty is a pretty quick-witted blonde with naturally curly hair, and a clear-cut, determined profile.
The Landlady was once in the 'profession', and still uses peroxide on her grey untidy hair. For Rudolph's benefit she has donned her smartest attire and an assortment of jewellery. She enters and Rudolph speaks to her.

About this project
This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed
in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC
programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.
We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC
programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement
with the BBC.
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
