Movie actor Alan Ladd played Dan Holiday, an ex-newspaper reporter who wrote mystery novels.
To find ideas for his stories, he ran a classified ad: "Adventure wanted, will go anywhere, do anything. Write Box 13, Star-Times."
Each episode began with the reading of a letter responding to this ad, and Halliday was off on another adventure.
The series ran in 1948 and 1949, and Ladd himself was co-writer of some of the scripts.
This episode, Suicide or Murder, aired on November 7, 1948.
