You Can't Take It With You
Here's a classic from the Golden Age of Hollywood that I've never seen and yet that means a lot to me. In 1991, I had the pleasure to appear in several small roles in a re-creation of the LUX RADIO THEATRE radio script adaptation of this movie. Our version starred radio's Henry Aldrich, Ezra Stone, in the Lionel Barrymore role and Bob Hastings in the James Stewart role. I played Donald Meek's role. My wife, Rene, played two roles including that of Spring Byington. The longest re-creation ever done at the Cincinnati Old-Time Radio and Nostalgia Convention, it was later written up under Ezra Stone's entry in WHO'S WHO IN AMERICA. At some point, I really DO need to catch this movie.
