    An old broad that enjoys books of all types. Would rather read than write reviews though. I know what I like, and won't be bothered by crap.

    Story
    "A few gems in here."

    1. Gotta get me a horse
    This first story was a war comedy about a cowboy getting in the Navy and taking his saddle with him, hoping for a horse somehow. He finally gets his wish when a sickly colt is found on a South Seas Island. He raises the colt and sends it home with a circus that was visiting them. Charming Jimmy Stewart.


    2. Destry Rides again
    The radio show of the Western movie with Jimmy playing the new Sheriff and Joan Blondell playing the Marlene Dietrich part of Frenchie, the bar maid with a heart of gold. Well done.


    3. Madame X
    The movie version I know is with Lana Turner. This one is with Jimmy as the son and Ann Rutherford his mother. This story is about a woman who abandons her husband and son. The husband refuses to give her a divorce because he wants to be a judge some day. He also refuses to let her see her son, even when he almost dies as a child. She becomes a singer and is blackmailed by a man who discovers her true identity. She kills him in order to protect her son. Jimmy is assigned her as his first case as a lawyer.



    4. Magic Town
    This was a lame Jane Wyman and Jimmy Stewart story about a town with the exact demographics for a polling service.



    5. Moon’s our home
    Carole Lombard and Jimmy Stewart make a wonderful couple who pretend to be someone else. Jimmy is an author and Carole a movie star. Once they realize who they really are will their marriage last?




    6. No Highway in the Sky
    A story of a scientist who figures out the life of an airplane which no one will accept his analysis as he tries to prevent a crash. Not much fun.





    7. The Stratton Story


    Like the movie version. June Allyson plays his wife. This is the story of a farm boy who becomes a baseball pitcher until he loses his leg in a hunting accident. His return to baseball is inspirational. Based on a true story.


    8. Single Crossing
    Myrna Loy plays Jimmy’s foil in this comedy. William Powell was supposed to do the part but was ill and Jimmy filled in. This is the story of mistaken identity on a ship to Hawaii. Very cute and clever.



    9. Calling Northside 777
    Like the movie, Jimmy plays a reporter who tries to prove an inmate’s innocence. Based on a true story.


    10. Suspense: Consequence
    Unusual story of a Doctor in a loveless marriage who when a fire gives him an opportunity to escape his life, he takes it. His wife happens upon him and refuses to let him be so he plans to kill her. What happens next is great.


    11. Suspense: Mission Completed
    This story was on the Pearl Harbor Anniversary and is about a man who survived a prisoner of war camp but can no longer move anything but his eyes. When he sees the guard who tortured him in the hospital flower shop, he begins to get his strength back in an attempt to kill his tormentor. Great twist at the end.


    12. Tailored by Toni
    Another story with Carole Lombard as the designer wife and Jimmy as a playwright. This one is cute but dated as Jimmy goes astray with an actress and Carole fixes things by staying home and keeping house.


    13. The Silver Whistle
    The story of a man who is not who he seems that helps the old folks into feeling better and younger about their lives. Not the greatest.


    This collection is worth the small cost if you enjoy radio plays. Nostalgia at it’s best.
    There were some stutters on the tape, but for the most part I had no trouble hearing it.

    "Jimmy Stewart is Amazing"

    Old time radio, with the scratchy sounds, is so charming to me. This is an excellent compilation of Jimmy Stewart classics, performed by the masters.

    "Love It"
    If you could sum up Jimmy Stewart - Radio Collection in three words, what would they be?

    It's Very Enjoyable


    What did you like best about this story?

    The fact that I was able to visualize the story as I listened. It captured my imagination, which is quite a feat!


    Which character – as performed by Jimmy Stewart – was your favorite?

    I've only listened to two of the stories so far so it's too early to pick a favorite.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, because there are several stories on it so it's quite lengthy.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm a huge fan of Jimmy Stewart. I think anyone who loves Jimmy Stewart will enjoy listening to this radio collection.
