Gielgud delivers a fascinating insight into the character and his approach, as well as to the play as a whole. Along the way, a number of key speeches and scenes highlight and enliven the story.
I am not sure why the production felt in necessary to add Music to the production as Mr Gielgud's voice is quite sufficient in captivating an audience on the stage, as he does beautiful on a recording, so the interruptions diminish rather add to this instructive as well as entertaining hour.
It takes a moment to get used to the style of the production, and after a couple of stories in the Toothpaste ads also stop. These fantastic, original Radio-plays, and huge collection and absolutely worth it.
If you like Marlowe Stories, or other Noir Detective style books, this will be a joy.
