THEATER ROYAL, vol. 8 - British & Irish Classics II
LAURENCE OLIVIER, JOHN GIELGUD

Sir Laurence Olivier stars in four dramatic adaptations of classic tales, first broadcast in the UK in 1952-3, and favorites with American radio listeners. Gielgud takes the lead in Beerbohm's black comedy "The Happy Hypocrite - A Fairy Tale for TIred Men" of 1897. Wilde's works date from the 1887-1891, accompanied by the more recent Greene story from 1954.
