The Lux Radio Theater: “The Canterville Ghost”

I like to start off the new year with these adaptations by “The Lux Radio Theater” of light, amusing tales. “The Canterville Ghost” was a short story written by Oscar Wilde in 1887. Over the years, there have been numerous adaptations. The latest version just aired in the U.K. on the BBC and starred Anthony Head of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” as the title character. I assume this will be coming to American television soon. So, in anticipation, here is the 1945 rendition, which features a lot of World War II-era material.
