|Plot||:||+ The Lux Radio Theatre. October 1, 1951. "All About Eve". Sponsored by: Lux. A story about a stage-struck understudy who makes it to the top with ruthless ambition. The story was produced again on The Lux Radio Theatre on November 23, 1954. + In his introduction the producer William Keighley says, When I was directing plays on the New York stage I had a first hand opportunity to watch the frantic struggle of young actresses to attain stardom in the theatre, but none that I knew at least used the tactics of the young woman in our play tonight, All About Eve.

The inhabitants of this planet looked across space with instruments of intelligence of which we have scarcely dreamed, searching for another world to which they could migrate. Their nearest world was giant Jupiter where the atmospheric pressure is thousands of pounds to the square inch, they could not go there. Nor to Saturn nor to Pluto, planets encased in eternal ice. They could not go to Neptune or Uranus twin worlds in eternal night and surrounded by un breathable atmospheres of methane gas. They could not go to Mercury; its temperature is that of molten lead. Of all the worlds the intelligences on Mars could see and study, only our own warm earth was green with vegetation, ripe with water and possessed a cloudy atmosphere eloquent with fertility. It did not occur to mankind that a swift fate may be hanging over us and that it would come with the time of our nearest approach to the orbit to Mars that it would begin or over the mountains North East of California on a pleasant summer evening…|
