I L❤️ve My Audio Books
This is an oddity I downloaded by mistake, I have no idea who these characters are but after listening, must belong to US 1940's era. The Lemon Drop Kid is a naughty little character pulling a fast one cheekily on anyone he can, which seems to be everybody. Nostalgia comes to
mind. This is a short story with a gangster & a doll (not broad) this is a young girl with a wispy school girl voice only Hollywood can create & a cheeky Lemon Drop Kid who yes, sucks lemon drops.
Not too sure why this is in existence, or why anyone would want to make this production, but they did. Breathy Elisha & Lemon Drop Kid are a farce who just seem to be there & other than saying that, serve no point.
This is no earth shattering literature, but a simple American story.
Listen to the end & then you can say you have listened to it. There is a moral to this play, but nothing else.
Please please more Damon Runyan!! Where's 'On Broadway'? The funniest stories ever. This dramatisation is a mere aperitif, we need a full crate of Runyan in Audible's library!
I like Runyon's use of language, but I thought this particular story was both predictable and depressing, with the kind of one-dimensional characters that seem obsolete by modern standards. It would be "nice" if Audible would provide some other Runyon stories instead.
Classic radio and classic Runyon. God, could that man ever write a short story!!
