Radio Days (1987)
October 22nd, Monday @ 7:30 p.m.
The truth that Woody Allen evokes in this comedy, Radio Days, is about growing up in the 1940s. Another truth is that glamour and celebrity meant something in those days. For millions of people living in ordinary homes in ordinary neighborhoods, the radio brought images of beings that lived in a shimmering world of penthouses and nightclubs, in dressing rooms and boudoirs. The hero of Radio Days is an ordinary person like that: an adolescent Jewish kid who grows up in Brooklyn in a house full of relatives and listens passionately to the radio. But the movie is not simply his story; it is also the story of 1940s.
