Pick Your Richard Hannay

Submitted for your listening pleasure is the Lux Radio TheaterÂ’s version of The 39 Steps with Robert Montgomery, Ida Lupino, Isabel Jewell, and Gene Lockhart. It aired on December 13, 1937. Unlike some radio broadcasts, this one is pretty clear and close to an hour long.

Update: I pulled the link to the file - just leave me a comment if interested

Also...at the end of the broadcast, Bob asks for your input on his next movie. Drop a card or a note to MGM, Bob, or the Lux Radio Theater with your choice:

1.) A light comedy
2.) A story with a social problem

I'll be sure to send my recommendation out in tomorrow's mail ;0)

There's also Orson Welles' rendition of Richard Hannay when his Mercury Theatre did their version of 'The 39 Steps' - must say, all three did a great job as Richard Hannay - I love this story so much :D

I will have to look for that one. Orson is thee radio man himself!

Posting these radio shows is brilliant! Montgomery was terrific in the 39 Steps—he had a marvelous voice for the radio. Thanks so much for making these shows available!
