In the Corner with Dan Hughes

Feb 28, 2011

This crime drama was on the air for five years, from 1949 to 1954.  Detective Danny Clover was a Manhattan native who knew his neighborhood, and his people. 

Larry Thor starred as Danny Clover, and the producer and director was the legendary Elliott Lewis, who was also an excellent actor equally at home in comedy (he was Remley on the Phil Harris-Alice Fay Show) and drama (he played the captain of the Scarlett Queen and often appeared in shows like Suspense).

Listen carefully and you'll hear the distinct voice of Howard McNear (Andy Griffith's Floyd the Barber) in this episode.

From May 12, 1950, this is The Marcia Dean Murder Case.
