"The Screen Guild Theater" broadcast a 30 minute radio adaptation of the movie on March 24, 1949 with David Niven, Teresa Wright and 'Jayne Meadows' reprising their film roles of General Roland Dane, Lark Ingoldsby and Selina Dane respectively. See more »
and superb acting in this wartime story. Jayne Meadows as the cold, manipulative sister is terrific as is Gigi Perreau in a small but very effective role as a child. David Niven is a delight and more intense than he usually is. Great yarn, good acting, delightful music and highly atmospheric. Glad I caught it.
