Old Time Radio at its best. Very good quality recording of a classic suspense story.
I'm not old enough to remember movies or drama on the radio, but these movies on the radio are such wonderful fun! I enjoy the ads for "Lux Toilette Soup" featuring various Hollywood starlets from the past. Quick, easy reads!
This must have been quite a difficult book to condense into an hour for the play. When I read the book, I found it a bit long and drawn out in places but the movie was excellent. This play obviously cuts to the chase. However I think if you had not already either seen the movie or read the book, the fact that the entire murder sequence is cut out of this play could sort of make you think, ?What just happened?? It jumps from Bruno telling Guy about his theory to commit the perfect murder, each man to do the other?s murder ?criss-cross? so there appears to be no motive to Bruno presenting Guy with his estranged wife?s glasses to prove he has killed her. So basically one minute it?s a suggestion, next scene, job done! However, it is still worth a listen and the parts are all well read!

A shorter version of the old black & white movie as shown on Sky.
I have a few of these from the Hollywood Lux Radio Theatre as I no longer watch television and can still enjoy an old movie classic.
These include the original film actors working in the radio studio with all of the original soundtracks so it is like listening to the movie but with no vision apart from what you remember about the films in your own head.
The three interludes about Lux Soaps etc. can be annoying, so I
stream those out.
