That photo is of a real estate agent with the name Victoria Dann -- not of the author of CBSRMT scripts.


Yes I am not enjoying seeing this realtor lady with her fake teeth and sad hair in place of the actual writer's photo.


I am wondering if Victoria Dann is still alive. Having been an adult the late 70s to early 80s you never know who is still alive and who isn't. It's a shame this radio series was never given the mass renown it deserved and that so many people involved in it remain unknown.


Victoria Dann is still alive and working for NYU. She continues to foster creative and shape the up and coming creative minds at Tisch School of the Arts

Does anyone else wonder if Victoria Dann is related to Sam Dann?


Were Sam Dann and Victoria Dann related? If so, how? What she his daugher?


a GREATpoint/counterpoint on the RMT is to listen to these two plays by father and daughter: first Mr. Dann's "The memory killers", and second, his daughter Victoria's "The ghosts of yesterday". They both deal with the same subject: cruelty by the Nazi regime to non-Jewish victims during wartime, though two different types of victims. It's fascinating to see how Mr. Dann, the World War II veteran, treated the subject vs. how his daughter (whose play was, I think, obliquely influenced by the Dustin Hoffman film "Marathon man" which came out the year before her play first aired) wrote hers.
