COCKTAIL TIME

by | Read by Frederick Davidson

Humor • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1958

This adventure of the suave, but loopy, Frederick Altamont Cornwallis Twistleton, fifth Earl of Ickenham, is hilarious and well done. The portrayals of Ickenham’s hapless relatives as they’re enmeshed in his nets of imposture and misdirection are classics of their kind. Popular British narrator Frederick Davidson’s male characters are well drawn, from the irascible to the befuddled, and the protagonist Ickenham is presented as properly debonair. But, he fails to distinguish the young women characters, all of whom have the same breathy, fatuously treacly voices. Immensely enjoyable listening.
