THE MAGNIFICENT MONTAGUE


Monty Woolley, the actor, writer, radio and movie star, is probably best known as the star of “The Man Who Came to Dinner.” But he also headlined his own radio comedy, “The Magnificent Montague.” He played Edwin Montague, once the leading light of the legitimate theatre, now reduced to acting in a radio melodrama. In these two episodes Montague goes to Hollywood. He’s supposed to star in a film version of “Macbeth,” but neither Tinseltown nor he are ready for each other.
