I think that the full cast version of SLEEPING BEAUTY that Dick mentions in
his thorough post below is a companion piece to the Harris Yulin-produced
(with Yulin starring as Archer) full cast audiobook version of THE ZEBRA-STRIPED HEARSE, featuring a ton of well-known Hollywood actors, including Julia Tilley and Joe Pantoliano.
They're both well worth a listen. Yulin's got the perfect voice for the
mature Archer (1959 and onward).
All the Best-
