Publisher's Summary

This radio dramatization of the classic movie, which also starred Cary Grant, originally aired on September 11, 1939.

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 love the oldies."

    This was very fun, entertaining. Too bad it is abbreviated. Although perfect for short fun.

    "The Awful Truth"

    Caudette Colbert and Cary Grant play a husband and wife who are headed for a divorce. Cary Grant has another woman who is ready to take Claudette's place, but Claudette does not want the divorce to happen. After a series of comedic events occur, Grant's character is not so sure that he wants a divorce either.
