Summary

This radio dramatization of the classic movie features the original stars, including Gary Cooper re-creating his Oscar-nominated role. It aired on June 17, 1940.

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.

Great Performances

Gary Cooper brought his role from the movie to this wonderful radio broadcast doing another outstanding performance. Virginia Bruce's and Edgar Buchanan's performances were equally as effective as Mr. Cooper's. The Lux Radio Broadcast brings you back to the day when this show was originally aired. A truly wonderful experience.
