Lux Radio Theatre - Volume 1 Publisher's Summary
The Lux Radio Theatre was radio's most important dramatic hour, commanding the top Hollywood stars, the biggest budgets - the best writing, directing, and sound effects. Cecil B. DeMille, the longtime host, was often shown in publicity photographs as overseeing every aspect of each broadcast, but the reality is that the shows real directors - Tony Stanford, Frank Woodruff, Fred MacKaye and Earl Ebi - did all of the heavy lifting from week to week, including keeping the star's egos in check and making sure everything went off without a hitch.
