talented man and cute too

Jack BennettNov 16, 2009

I was extreamly fortunet enough to see this man on stage in N.Y. in the play GIDON with Campbell. Both actors were wonderful but it was March`s voice that filled the huge theatre in late December 61. And Mr. March, by far out did Mr. Tracy in INHERIT THE WIND.

has anyone every heard of a 78 rpm narrated by Fredric March called the secret garden with a fabric cover. I have it since I was a child and no one has heard of it.
