than most college graduates!
Favorite Story was a classic, well-loved "old time radio" anthology series that each week presented the best-loved piece of literature of a well-known public figure, dramatized by an all-star cast. These marvelous half-hour adaptations were introduced and hosted by Ronald Colman, the famous actor with a delightful, urbane British accent. Coleman also stars in several of these adaptations as well.
"What is your favorite story?"
... that was the question the show's producers posed to a dazzling array of movie stars, acclaimed artists, authors, composers and critics, renowned poets, scholars, humorists, explorers… everyone from Shirley Temple to Albert Einstein. And what stories did they choose? A marvelous array of classic short stories and "living books" -- from the heart-warming to the dramatic, from the humorous to the downright spine-tingling. Some (the short stories) are complete adaptations of the original story. Others (the novels) are well done condensations or episodes from the original work -- all neatly adapted in a fast-moving half hour of great dramatic radio that is suitable for the entire family.
