Lux Radio Theater 47-05-05 (570) The Egg and I

The Egg and I, first published in 1945, is a humorous memoir by American author Betty MacDonald about her adventures and travails as a young wife on a chicken farm on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington state. It was a blockbuster success as a novel, and was adapted into a movie and short-lived TV series, starring Patricia Kirkland, with Nancy Carroll as her mother (Carroll was Kirkland's real mother). The movie, starring Fred MacMurray and Claudette Colbert, was the inspiration for a series of ten Ma and Pa Kettle movies starring Marjorie Main and Percy Kilbride.

Lux Radio Theater aired a radio version on May 5, 1947 starring the original cast from the movie.
