Orson Welles both starred in and directed The Campbell Playhouse, a radio drama (1938-40) produced by Welles and John Houseman. The episodes include adaptions of classic novels and plays, as well as radio versions of the era's popular films.

Hearing Laurence Olivier and Orson Welles doing a radio play together. A bit of static in the recording (which can hardly be surprising :-))
It's an audio dramatization of the book by P.C. Wren
I don't know, but maybe that Laurence Olivier fellow should play the lead. Oh wait. :-)
This is a condensed adaption of the great bestselling novel by P.C. Wren. It is extremely fun if you have already read the book, which I had done. It might be a bit breathlessly paced if you haven't. The story itself is VERY twisty, so you have to pay attention to the exposition if you haven't read the book. But if you have, you can concentrate on the highly entertaining interpretation of the characters, which with Laurence Olivier, Orson Welles, and Noah Berrie doing the acting, is wonderful fun.
