Radio review - Lux - "Algiers" (1941) **
Charles Boyer and Hedy Lamaar were never more perfectly cast as a doomed criminal and the beautiful girl who loves him. They're all attractive and doomed and ya ya ya. I wasn't wild about it, probably because I'd only recently listened to the Orson Welles version - not that it was so much better, but I suppose there's only so much exotic romantic tosh I can take.
