With Nathaniel Shilkret’s full concert orchestra providing a thrilling musical background.
Claude Rains (10 November 1889 – 30 May 1967) was an English stage and film actor whose career spanned 47 years. He was known for many roles in Hollywood films, among them the title role in The Invisible Man (1933), a corrupt senator in Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (1939), Mr. Dryden in Lawrence of Arabia (1962), and, perhaps his most notable performance, as Captain Renault in Casablanca (1942).
Rains made several audio recordings, narrating a few Bible stories for children on Capitol Records, and reciting Richard Strauss’s setting for narrator and piano of Tennyson’s poem Enoch Arden, with the piano solos played by Glenn Gould. This recording was made by Columbia Masterworks Records.
