A "richly nostalgic" (Leonard Maltin) and star-studded portrait of the 1940s, Woody Allen’s "Radio Days" weaves together a young boy’s comical memories with zany stories from the golden age of radio, to create a delightful tapestry of heartwarming and hilarious vignettes.
Expertly rendered and "densely packed with vivid detail" (The New York Times), Radio Days is "one of the loveliest eulogies a filmmaker has ever given to any bygone era" (L.A. Weekly)! Gripped by wild radio stories about bloody wars and beautiful celebrities, 10-year-old Joe Needleman longs for adventure and dreams of the day he’ll see enemy spies, German subs - or even his sexy grade-school teacher wearing a smile (and little else).
But while Joe’s life is filled with fantasies about radio voices, the real people behind the voices have fantasies of their own. And as stars rise, careers fall and a nation hurtles toward the future, only one thing is absolutely certain: the days of radio may finally fade...but the magic of Joe’s memories will always endure.
