Trivia (2)

Norman Corwin was inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame in 1993.
He died two days after the airing of 60 Minutes: Running the War/The Life and Death of Vincent Van Gogh (2011), produced by his old employer CBS News, which largely discredited the depiction of Van Gogh's death as it was presented in his screenplay for Lust for Life (1956).
