Publisher's Summary

This radio dramatization of the classic Hitchcock movie originally aired on December 13, 1937.

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.

    I can find a book to love in any genre -- a beautifully written classic, an interesting mystery or sci-fi, a trashy romance. Bring it!

    "Refreshingly Different"

    STORY - (1937 Radio Show - Alfred Hitchcock) The 39 Steps is a very short, fast-moving story where the main characters are trying to locate a spy who has secrets of national importance. I was disappointed because it lacks Hitchcock's usual eerie flair, but it is still entertaining.

    (This is one of eight stories you will receive if you purchase Alfred Hitchcock's Radio Movie Collection. This review is an abbreviated version of the one I wrote for the first book I heard, Shadow of a Doubt).

    PERFORMANCE - Great multi-voice performance by professional actors and actresses, with music and sound effects.

    OVERALL - Recommended for all listeners, but mainly because of the awesome performance.

    "A little cheesy...but a piece of history!"

    It is amazing to think that this is 70 years old. The recording is crystal clear. So long as you approach this with a view to the fact that you are stepping back in time and experiencing radio as it was in 1937 you will enjoy it. The dramatisation is excellent but the Lux (Soap) advertisements are laboured by todays standards. I will buy more in this series.
