''The Campbell Playhouse'' (1938–40) is a live CBS radio drama series directed by and starring Orson Welles. Produced by Welles and John Houseman, it was a sponsored continuation of ''The Mercury Theatre on the Air''. The series offered hour-long adaptations of classic plays and novels, as well as adaptations of popular motion pictures.
When Welles left at the end of the second season, ''The Campbell Playhouse'' changed format as a 30-minute weekly series that ran for one season (1940–41).

As a direct result of the front-page headlines Orson Welles generated with his 1938 Halloween production "The War of the Worlds", Campbell's Soup signed on as sponsor. ''The Mercury Theatre on the Air'' made its last broadcast December 4, 1938, and ''The Campbell Playhouse'' began December 9, 1938.
The series made its debut with Welles's adaptation of ''Rebecca'', with guest stars Margaret Sullavan and Mildred Natwick. The radio drama was the first adaptation of the 1938 novel by Daphne Du Maurier; the author was interviewed live from London at the conclusion of the broadcast.〔Callow, Simon, ''Orson Welles: The Road to Xanadu''. London: Jonathan Cape, 1995; New York: Viking Books, pp. 417–422〕
Bernard Herrmann had time to compose a complete score for "Rebecca". "It was absolutely beautiful," said associate producer Paul Stewart, "and it was the first time to me that Benny was something more than a guy who could write bridges." Herrmann later used the main theme as the basis of his score for the film ''Jane Eyre''. 〔
Although the same creative staff stayed on, the show had a different flavor under sponsorship. This was partially due to a guest star policy which relegated the Mercury Players to supporting roles. There was a growing schism between Welles, still reaping the rewards of his Halloween eve notoriety, and Houseman, who became an employee rather than a partner. Houseman worked primarily as supervising editor on the radio shows.〔Tarbox, Todd, ''Orson Welles and Roger Hill: A Friendship in Three Acts''. Albany, Georgia: BearManor Media, 2013, ISBN 1-59393-260-X.〕
Howard E. Koch remained on the writing staff through "The Glass Key" (March 10, 1939), when he left for Hollywood. He was succeeded by Howard Teichmann, who wrote for the show for two years.〔France, Richard, ''The Theatre of Orson Welles''. Lewisburg, Pennsylvania: Bucknell University Press, 1977. ISBN 0-8387-1972-4〕
After signing a film contract with RKO in August 1939, Welles began commuting from Hollywood to New York for the two Sunday broadcasts of ''The Campbell Playhouse''. In November 1939, production of the show moved from New York to Los Angeles.〔Welles, Orson, and Peter Bogdanovich, edited by Jonathan Rosenbaum, ''This is Orson Welles''. New York: HarperCollins Publishers 1992 ISBN 0-06-016616-9〕
Screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz was put on the Mercury payroll and wrote five scripts〔A script titled "Rip Van Winkle" did not reach the air.〕 for ''Campbell Playhouse'' shows broadcast between November 12, 1939, and March 17, 1940. Mankiewicz proved to be useful, particularly working with Houseman as editor. The episode "Mr. Deeds Goes to Town" includes an inside joke: the Viennese doctor asked to certify Deeds insane is named Dr. Herman Mankiewicz.〔Maltin, Leonard, ''The Great American Broadcast: A Celebration of Radio's Golden Age''. New York: Dutton, 1997. ISBN 9780525941835〕
After an argument over finances December 16, 1939, John Houseman resigned from the Mercury Theatre and returned to New York.〔 Two months later Welles hired him back to work with Mankiewicz on a new venture, Welles's first film project, ''Citizen Kane''.〔
After 20 shows, Campbell began to exercise more creative control over ''The Campbell Playhouse'', and had complete control over story selection. Diana Bourbon, an account executive from the Ward Wheelock agency, was appointed as liaison between Welles and Campbell. Bourbon acted as de facto producer, and she and Welles frequently clashed over story and casting.〔 One notable dispute came after the broadcast of "Algiers", which employed a carefully crafted tapestry of sound to create the world of the Casbah. Challenged on why the background sounds were so loud, Welles responded, "Who told you it was the background?"〔
Amiable classics were chosen over many of Welles's story suggestions, including ''Of Human Hearts''; the rights to many works, including ''Rogue Male'', ''Wuthering Heights'' and ''The Little Foxes'', could not be obtained. As his contract with Campbell came to an end, Welles determined not to sign on for another season. "I'm sick of having the heart torn out of a script by radio censorship," he said. After the broadcast of March 31, 1940 — a reprise of ''Jane Eyre'', after Welles's suggestion of ''Alice Adams'' was not accepted — Welles and Campbell parted amicably.〔Brady, Frank, ''Citizen Welles: A Biography of Orson Welles''. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1989 ISBN 0-385-26759-2 pp. 221–226〕
''The Campbell Playhouse'' returned to radio November 29, 1940, as a 30-minute weekly CBS series that was last broadcast June 13, 1941.〔Hickerson, Jay, ''The Ultimate History of Network Radio Programming and Guide to All Circulating Shows''. Hamden, Connecticut, second edition December 1992, page 62〕 The program was produced by Diana Bourbon. The series' focus shifted away from classic play and novel adaptations to lighter, more popular fare, still with casts drawn from the ranks of film actors.
