Description

The Lux Radio Theatre was one of the most prestigious and longest-running shows from radio's Golden Age. It featured the greatest stars in Hollywood appearing in hour-long radio adaptations of their biggest motion pictures. Cecil B. DeMille was the host (from 1936-1945) for a lavish production of what was to become a veritable checklist of many of Hollywood's best films from the mid-1930s through the mid-1950s. The stars of the movie usually appeared in their audio counterparts, although sometimes contracts or schedules meant that another actor took the part. The productions were broadcast live, with a full orchestra, in front of a large studio audience. Sponsored by Lever Brothers, the makers of Lux Soap, The Lux Radio Theatre came to radio in 1934 and lasted until 1955 for a total of 926 hour-long broadcasts. It transitioned to TV in thirty-minute weekly installments in 1950 with James Mason as host. This volume includes eight Lux Radio Theatre episodes: 12/11/39 - "In Name Only" with Cary Grant and Carole Lombard3/5/45 - "Disputed Passage" with Alan Ladd and Akim Tamiroff3/19/45 - "Grissley's Millions" with Pat O'Brien and Lynn Bari6/18/45 - "The Canterville Ghost" with Charles Laughton and Margaret O'Brien1/21/46 - "Johnny Eager" with Robert Taylor and Van Heflin2/11/46 - "Now, Voyager" with Bette Davis and Gregory Peck11/10/47 - "The Dark Corner" with Lucille Ball and Mark Stevens11/17/47 - "Nobody Lives Forever" with Ronald Reagan and Jane Wyman
