Audio: Lux Radio Theater — “The Thin Man”

With a remake of “The Thin Man” in the news, we thought the time was ripe to share this little gem from our archives:  The Lux Radio Theater’s adaptation of “The Thin Man” with William Powell and Myrna Loy.

This was a special phenomena of old time radio.  Lux would offer condensed versions of hit movies, sometimes when they were still playing in theaters, with as much of the original cast as they could gather.  It was like radio’s version of the network tv premiere.  And who do we have to thank for this genius idea?  Cecil B. Demille and Lux soap.

So just say, “Ready when you are, C.B!”  Hit play.  And enjoy the show!

  1. Great -thanks for this. It’s like a sort of Readers’ Digest for the ear with beautifully quaint accents.
