LUX RADIO THEATER: "The Man Who Came to Dinner"

“The Man Who Came to Dinner” was a 1939 Broadway comedy written by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart. It has since become a classic. When radio commentator and professional wit Sheridan Whiteside is visiting a prominent family in a small town in Ohio a few weeks before Christmas, he injures himself and is confined to their house for a month. He may be stuck but the show must go on. “Sherry,” as his friends call him, continues to run his business, see friends and associates, and drive his nice suburban hosts crazy. This one-hour adaptation stars Clifton Webb and Lucille Ball.
