I think this version was amazing as it was from radio and had the major cast due a short version of there great holiday film. So happy Audible offers these.
It's a story of believing in Christmas no matter how old you think you are.
The main players from the hit movie all but the then young Miss woods. They did a great job like in the Film
Just brought back memories of watching the movie growing up so the whole project just helped make the Holiday season even that much better.
If you never listened to Old time radio(OTR) then Please due yourself a favor and have a listen to time before the TV sat in our living rooms and allow your mind to help tell the story as they act it out with words.
Lionel Barrymore as Scroge brought to you by Campbell's playhouse and with Orson Wells and the Mercury theater on the air Players.
Since this is a radio play from a radio show I would compare it to any classic radio shows and this is one that sticks out as a top Favorite and at one time in American History it was an Icon for every Christmas season. This is a great way to help you enjoy your Holiday season and Classic radio.
Like always when Lionel Barrymore as Scroge waked up and see's it's still Christmas day and thus he changes for the good old world
The production value that Orson Wells always used when doing anything he did. It gave life to a Dickens Classic story.
Orson Wells would always say Radio is an amazing Media as it's Theater of the Mind. This like all Classic radio shows is for sure Theater of the Mind.
Bob Hope became America, his timing, his talent and his style. One could not help but love to travel back in time when Radio was king and thousands gathered around them and were entertained and there lives seemed a little less hurried.
This was taken from 1941 and just think what happened just weeks before this. Bob and His crew did a great job at trying to make people laugh even in the darkest times. Bob's timing for great comedy is what is best about the Bob hope anything.
I think all of Bob "Christmas tree" Hope as he calls himself in this show are worth everyone who likes radio, or loves history or just likes to laugh. Bob Hope was a true Icon.
Just laughed at the dated humor which was very fun indeed.
Radio is Theater of the Mind and I recommend this and all old time radio to everyone
