Co-Star! The Record Acting Game!

I used to find these LPs in thrift shops all the time... they were from the 1950s and early 1960s.

Along with the LP came a script. A star (Tallulah Bankhead, Cesar Romero, Vincent Price) would read half of the script, leaving appropriate pauses for you to "act" a scene with him or her. The best one was Arlene Dahl, because she was striking a sultry pose on a real leopard rug on the cover.

I imagine listening to "Co-Star!" would have been a pretty good guide to pencil-dialing ability back in the day.

Does anyone remember these?

The Tallulah record was the best - pure camp.

It was on this record that the famous line reading lesson was given by Miss Bankhead:

WHAT have you been doing?

What HAVE you been doing?

What have YOU been doing?

What have you BEEN doing?

What have you been DOING?

Take that, Stanislavski, dahling...
