Publisher's Summary

This radio dramatization of the classic musical features Judy Garland re-creating the role for which she received an honorary Academy Award. It aired on Dec. 25, 1950, a dozen years after the movie was released.

The Lux Radio Theatre was one of radio's most popular series attracting Hollywood's top stars and boasting a lavish budget. The Lux Radio Theatre began in 1934 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.

Like sitting with my grandma listing to the radio

Growing up in the TV era made me wonder what it would be like to sit and "watch" the radio. This made me feel like I was right there doing that.
