January 19: Happy Birthday, Patricia Highsmith
In 1951, Lux Radio Theater presented an adaptation of Stangers on a Train, starring Ruth Roman and Ray Milland.
Highsmith walked a tightrope between literary and crime fiction. The themes of lesbianism in her work are part of what lend her work its literary tint. As one can see, her work was widely adapted, not just into old time radio shows but also movies.
