The Lux Radio Theatre was one of the most prestigious and longest running shows from Radio’s Golden Age. It featured the greatest stars in Hollywood appearing in hour-long radio adaptations of their biggest motion pictures. Cecil B. DeMille was the host (from 1936-1945) for a lavish production of what was to become a veritable checklist of many of Hollywood’s best films from the mid-1930s through the mid-1950s. The stars of the movie usually appeared in their audio counterparts, although sometimes contracts or schedules meant that another actor took the part. The productions were broadcast live, with a full orchestra, in front of a large studio audience. Sponsored by Lever Brothers, the makers of Lux Soap, The Lux Radio Theatre came to radio in 1934 and lasted until 1955 for a total of 926 hour-long broadcasts. It transitioned to TV in 30-minute weekly installments in 1950 with James Mason as host. 10/11/37 "Stella Dallas" w/ Barbara Stanwyck, John Boles and Anne Shirley 10/6/47 "Undercurrent" w/ Katharine Hepburn and Robert Taylor 11/22/48 "The Big Clock" w/ Ray Milland and Maureen O’Sullivan 4/18/49 "The Treasure of the Sierra Madre" w/ Humphrey Bogart and Walter Huston 9/10/51 "Fancy Pants" w/ Bob Hope and Lucille Ball 12/3/51 "Strangers on a Train" w/ Ray Milland, Frank Lovejoy and Ruth Roman
