One of the reasons
I listen to Old Time Radio is that I get to hear my favorite stars
voices, and sometimes in the radio version of their most famous movies.
So, at Classic Movie Favorites I thought I'd add a section so you
too could enjoy the favorite classic stars in these radio performances.
The following is a selection of the
Old Time Radio programs available at this site:
The Halls of Ivy: Ronald Colman did
lots of radio in the 1940's and 1950's. He is best known for his
own radio program that began in the early 1950's, The Halls of
Ivy. I love this program because it features both Ronald, as Dr.
Todd Hunter Hall, the President of Ivy College, and his wife Benita
Colman as Mrs. Hall. I have a portion of my Colman site devoted
to this program and I upload new episodes weekly. Click

A Tale of Two Cities: The film is
my favorite Ronald Colman film. This broadcast from the Lux Radio
Theater broadcast January 12, 1942, hosted by Cecil
B. Demille is certainly worthy for any Colman or Dickens fan. Click
here to listen.
The War of the Worlds: This is probably the most
famous radio program ever since it scared the whole country into
thinking we were being attacked by Martians, broadcast on October
31, 1938. This production done by Welles, Mercury Theater is truly
a must for anyone interested in old time radio or Orson Welles. Click
