Publisher's summary

This radio dramatization of the classic movie, featuring the original stars, aired on December 2, 1946.

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.

Great musical

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes - it was so enjoyable and wonderful to hear Judy Garland singing. It was a delightful presentation with full sound effects.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Esther and Tootie as they played their characters so well. Especially Tootie as the younger sister and the antics she got up to.

What about Judy Garland and Margaret O'Brien ’s performance did you like?

When Esther was comforting Tootie when they thought they were moving to New York. They were so believable.

Any additional comments?

I even enjoyed the ads as they were something new to me even though we have Lux Flakes in Aust I was unaware there had been a shortage during this period. The information about the returning Service Personnel from WW2 was also interesting. I love these little snippets of information. I am now looking forward to listening to more of these productions.

They don’t make it like they used to

You definitely don’t make these like they used to radio broadcast scenes or something very special from Hollywood with the regional cast of the movies for telling the story. It’s nice just to sit back and relax and enjoy the Audible versions I’m old Time radio.

👏 Classic 📻 Dramatization

I liked hearing this radio dramatization as compared to the movie.

There were a few stumbling of acting lines, but I enjoyed that too! Even the commercials and actor comments after the show were entertaining.

There were some acting scenes that I felt could have been a little better, so as to make the scenes a little more lively.

Overall I greatly enjoyed the radio experience!
