Duration: 4 hours 43 minutes
International crime. Lushly depicted settings. Shady, interesting characters. And Orson Welles leading the pack as the amoral anti-hero. All of this and more makes The Lives of Harry Lime one of the richest, most intriguing programs ever produced in Radio's heyday. As played by Welles, Lime is a rogue, a scoundrel, and an opportunist. He is also a fascinating character that listeners have always found undeniably attractive - an anti-hero whose life, in some ways, bears a close resemblance to that of Welles himself. The Lives of Harry Lime, Volume 4 is the perfect closing chapter for a classic program that deserves exactly what it gave listeners, the best of everything.
