Theater of Romance (CBS) ran for twelve years between 1943 and 1957 as a thirty minute filler for a number of old time radio shows. The content, directors, performers and producers changed often during the run of the series, but maintained its theme. When the show picked up sponsor Colgate Tooth Powder in the years 1944-1946, big names like Henry Fonda, Errol Flynn, Humphrey Bogart, Shirley Temple, Orson Welles, Gregory Peck and James Stewart began to appear on the show. Theatre of Romance became the half hour version of the Lux Radio Theater for the Colgate Company, with stories adapted from the the movies and historical fiction. Frank Graham hosted the show for most of its years. In the later years, the show was called Romance.
