Babylon Revisited

Broadcast: 13th November 1949
Added: Feb 01 2011

From the NBC Theater in Hollywood and hour long drama based on the F. Scott Fitzgerald short story Babylon Revisited.

Written in 1930 and published in 1931 Babylon Revisited is one of the finest of Scott Fitzgerald’s short stories. It arises in a very real sense out of his own summing up of a period of years, which was the most important in his own life. The story takes place in the early 1930’s but its motivation is in the lives led by its characters and particularly by its protagonist Charlie Wales during the 1920’s.
