Lux Radio Theater

The Lux Radio Theater aired from 1934-55. Occasionally adapting plays, the series' focus for most of its run was in adapting feature films to radio, often with members of the original cast recreating their parts. Many of these broadcasts still exist; because Lux was a popular and influential program, I think this list is an interesting snapshot of what was considered worthy of adaptation (and by omission, what was not).
