Theater of Romance - Old Time Radio

Theater of Romance

"My name is Romance..."

Radio dramas were plays, operettas, and other types of performances, usually seen in stage or movie theaters, that were adapted especially for radio. he radio drama brought these dazzling presentations into the home, costing the listeners only the initial price of their radios for a front row seat in the theater of imagination.

What makes Theater of Romance more elegant than the archetypal radio drama of the same era was the number of brilliant Hollywood celebrities that performed on the show. Between 1943-1952, the revolving cast included luminaries Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., Henry Fonda, and Errol Flynn. Against a backdrop of sentimental music, performers acted out famous movie scripts, such as "Daddy Long Legs", "Stage Door," "Casablanca," "It Happened One Night, " "Goodbye Mr. Chips, " "Stage Door," and "Dark Victory."
