These hour-long radio programs were performed live before studio audiences. It became the most popular dramatic anthology series on radio, broadcast for more than 20 years and continued on television as the Lux Video Theater through most of the 1950s.
Cecil B. DeMille took over as the host on June 1, 1936, continuing until January 22, 1945. On several occasions, usually when he was out of town, he was temporarily replaced by various celebrities, including Leslie Howard and Edward Arnold.
Many of leading names in stage and film appeared in the series, most in the roles they made famous on the screen, including Abbott and Costello, Lauren Bacall, Lucille Ball, Ingrid Bergman, Humphrey Bogart, John Wayne and many more.
Our newest version now has player which is more stable with continuous playback option!
This app is a Treasure!!!!! Wow I wasn’t expecting to have access to just about every great drama I loved at the movies…
Enjoyable. Thanks Nicely done. Easy to use. Would have given 5 stars if app had continuous or shuffle play like your suspense app.
Fab Radio!!! Thank goodness for OTR radio!! And Lux Theater is one of the best. There is nothing on TV today to even warrant turning the thing on any more. What IS surprising is that radio programming from 30 to 50 years ago is so much better than just about anything on the aptly named “idiot box”!!! So I say Hooray for Radio!
Revised I love the Lux Theater shows but almost always they shut off about halfway through. I get a message that there is no data. Is this a common problem. Is there a resolution? I contacted customer support and received a quick response. They suggested “swiping” the title of the program to use the timeline view and to check the Internet connection. That seems to alleviate the problem.
