5/13/2012 Sound Affects: A Radio Playground


Feature Presentation - The Lux Radio Theater broadcast radio adaptations of popular films during the 1940s and 50s. This is a special 90-minute live broadcast of the old movie serial, The Adventures of Luke Skywalker, performed for troop morale at a base in California in 1944. It features an all star cast including Mickey Rooney as Luke, Humphrey Bogart as Han Solo, Katherine Hepburn as Princess Leia, Jimmy Stewart as Obi-Wan and many more. We will play excerpts from the broadcast, and comment on the production, the cast, and how it was done.

You can find out more at: http://www.luxtheater.com/show.html. Hosted by Cecil B. DeMille. Produced by Shawn Crosby, Michael Reed and Colleen Crosby.
(Of course, this is only a parody, so don't take it all seriously. And incidentally, it's not available anywhere else.)
