Gertrude "Trudy" Warner was a voice actor in the Golden Age of Radio. Warner was born in Hartford, Connecticut in 1917 and died in New York City in 1986.

By any account, Trudy Warner's career has to stand as one of the ten most ambitious, successful such careers in the history of radio ... some 28 years and well over 4,000 performances. She was considered one of the queens of daytime radio, appearing in dozens of daytime serials. She portrayed such well known characters as "the lovely Margot Lane" on The Shadow and Della Street on the daytime Perry Mason. The Lux Radio Theater episode of Mrs. Miniver proved so popular, it was developed into a daytime serial with Warner in the title role and as narrator. She was the third busiest actor in the Golden Age of Radio.

The shadow was amateur criminologist Lamont Cranston. He had learned “the hypnotic power to cloud men’s minds so that they cannot see him”. The opening to the show, “Who knows … what evil … lllllurks … in the heart of men? … The Shadow knows! His “friend and companion, the lovely Margo Lane, is the only person who knows to whom the voice of the invisible Shadow belongs”. Together they confront the maddest assortment of lunatics, sadists, ghosts and werewolves ever heard on the air.
