Listen to Lux Radio Theater: Secret of the Incas
In December 1954, Charlton Heston and Nicole Maurey reprised their roles in a Lux Radio Theater version of the B-movie classic Secret of the Incas.
Heston’s character, Harry Steele, a roguish bush pilot and profiteering explorer, is believed by many to have been the inspiration for Indiana Jones.
This, and a full catalog of Lux Theater old time radio shows, can be found on the Public Domain Internet Archive. This hard-boiled noir radio version is more kitsch than the film. It’s a lot of fun.
For all sorts of information about the film, visit James Byrne’s Secret of the Incas fan page. It’s chock full of articles, reviews, trivia and memorabilia, as well as James’ travel log of his personal journey to Cusco in 2007, “Blazing the Harry Steele Trail.”
