THEATRE ROYAL VOL. 7 Classics from Britain I

by | Read by Ralph Richardson, Margaret Lockwood

Poetry & Drama • 1.5 hrs. • Audio Program • © 2016

Sir Ralph Richardson may no longer be a household name, but just one listen to these Heritage Media 1950s BBC Radio performances will convince listeners why he was one of the most dominant and beloved voices of mid-twentieth-century stage, film, and radio. With a charming and gentlemanly presence, he easily finds the warmth, clarity, and humor in a number of short selections from English literature's thickest eighteenth-century offerings: Laurence Stern's SENTIMENTAL JOURNEY and William Makepeace Thackeray's VANITY FAIR. In the latter he shares the microphone with the incomparable Margaret Lockwood--another wonderful voice from the golden age of British film and radio. These "pop-and-hiss" recordings offer a great way to experience how these broadcasts were originally heard more than 60 years ago. B.P. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2016]
