on 4 October 2003
In the 1930s and 1940s it was not unusual that movies were sometimes performed by the same actors on the radio for the Lux Radio Theater. One of the classic examples of this peculiar art form is this radio adaptation of "Miracle on 34th Street," broadcast on the CBS network on December 20, 1948 as a nice little Christmas present to the listening audience (the film had come out during the summer of the previous year). Most of the movie cast is reunited (with Natalie Wood the obvious exception, especially since she appears on the CD cover), with Edmund Gwenn as Chris Kringle, Maureen O'Hara as Doris, John Payne as Fred, Marlene Ames as Susan, Joseph Kearns as Sawyer, and Willard Waterman as Macy. The radio version is just as charming as the classic holiday film, which is required viewing on Thanksgiving weekend as we gear up for the holiday season. The broadcast runs one hour, including the original commercials for Lux Toiler Soap (would I make this up?). Try listening to this while you are working on decorations or holiday cooking since it is a feast for the ears that does not you to the race to the set every time one of your favorite scenes comes along (the ending is especially good in this version).
