Radio review – TGA#5 - “Ah Wilderness” (1945) ***

A decent adaptation of Eugene O'Neil's only comedy, a fore-runner of the Hardy family series. Lots of aw shucks, supposedly hilarious drunken-ness, a wise paterfamilias, some serious subtext to do with sex (the 17year old is tempted to sleep with a hooker), romance, a happy ending. Much better than the Orson Welles version.
