THEATER ROYAL, vol. 1 American Classics I
LAURENCE OLIVIER

Sir Laurence Olivier stars in four classic tales, first broadcast in the UK in 1952-3, and favorites with American radio listeners. HG Wells' "The Country of the Blind" was first published in 1904 in the Strand magazine; Olivier plays the hapless and confused Nunez. "Bartleby" by Herman Melville first appeared in 1853; then we have two tales of the California gold rush written by Bret Harte in the 1860s, all brought to life in vintage 1950s style.
