There are many great performances by Miss Ginger Rogers for the Screen Guild Theater, in its many forms and through several sponsors. A nice aspect of the show was that all the money that would have gone to the stars for their performances went to the Motion Picture Relief Fund - Country House, "to support those in need in the picture industry". At the end of the early Gulf shows a quiz was given to the stars, and if they couldn't answer their question correctly, they had to pay a forfeit by doing something silly.
The episodes listed below are in the public domain and available on archive.org.
Each show has a number because there are several versions of some of them. I think it is difficult to find the exact shows I'm looking for on the main archive.org page. You can try and count your way down the pile there but I find it easier to scroll down to the list below the downloads (this list has the names of who's who in the shows available), find the show I want, and note what is listed just before it and then go back looking for the 2 shows together. Just to keep things confusing, the numbers on the lower list don't match the numbers in the player (upper right hand corner of main screen on archive.org) and I don't know why. Have fun listening.
