Radio Goodness During the Golden Age of Cinema

Cary Grant reprises his classic role in a shortened script version of the film and an insight into the radio of the time with added commercials and a celebrity endorsement by the man of the hour. If you enjoyed the film this is a nice touch. If you havent seen the film, watch that, the script was originally designed for a star from the golden age of cinema and its limited without the classic visual gags and Grant's slick acrobatics and facial expressions. I listened to it while renovating an old house. I loved it.
