Publisher's Summary

This radio dramatization of the classic Hitchcock movie, which also starred Ruth Roman, originally aired on December 2, 1951.

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.

    "Nostalgic Fun!"

    I'm not old enough to remember movies or drama on the radio, but these movies on the radio are such wonderful fun! I enjoy the ads for "Lux Toilette Soup" featuring various Hollywood starlets from the past. Quick, easy reads!

    "Well done."

    Very good production. I enjoyed this adaptation of the movie, it stayed true to story. Lux Radio Theater was very great at doing movie adaptations, so it's not surprising that this was as good as it was.

    "Better than the book, not as good as the film!"

    This must have been quite a difficult book to condense into an hour for the play. When I read the book, I found it a bit long and drawn out in places but the movie was excellent. This play obviously cuts to the chase. However I think if you had not already either seen the movie or read the book, the fact that the entire murder sequence is cut out of this play could sort of make you think, ?What just happened?? It jumps from Bruno telling Guy about his theory to commit the perfect murder, each man to do the other?s murder ?criss-cross? so there appears to be no motive to Bruno presenting Guy with his estranged wife?s glasses to prove he has killed her. So basically one minute it?s a suggestion, next scene, job done! However, it is still worth a listen and the parts are all well read!
