Escape! Episodes of the radio program on film!

by dusky-1 | created - 04 Sep 2012 | updated - 04 Sep 2012 | Public

A list of stories dramatized on Escape (1947-54) in the various versions they appeared as in film and TV. (this list does not include Robert of Huntington or the Voyages of Sinbad; Robin Hood & Sinbad have each been dramatized numerous times, but I'm unaware of versions similar to the radio episodes)
