The Devil and Mr. O
Fantasy / Horror / Mystery
Cast: Arch Obler
The Devil and Mr. O is a collection of memorable shows created by Arch Obler in 1936 as part of his Lights Out
series and rebroadcast as The Devil and Mr. O.
Arch Obler pioneered many innovations in sound effects and Foley artistry as he sliced through carrots to create the sound of fingers being cut off, or snapping spare ribs to simulate broken bones
. The result was a new level of horror that let the listeners' imagination fill in the blanks for what they couldn't see, but only hear.
