The Lux Radio Theatre was one of radio's most popular series, attracting Hollywood's top stars and boasting a lavish budget. It began in 1934 by featuring dramas from Broadway, but there was not enough material to support the show. In an attempt to reverse the slipping ratings, the show was moved to Hollywood in 1936, where there was plenty of material and talent. In fact, filmmaker Cecil B. DeMille often served as the host.

This is another piece of Hollywood/radio/advertising history, and is of interest for that reason, but the dramatisation is just too short to get a handle on any of the characters and there is no real feel of Hemingway about the production.
