In the Corner with Dan Hughes


Mar 21, 2011

Casey, Crime Photographer ran from 1943 to 1950, then again in 1954-55, on the CBS radio network. 

Jack Casey took crime pictures for the Morning Express, and his adventures turned him into a reluctant detective. 

Staats Cotsworth, who played Casey for most of the show's run, started in radio in 1937 as an actor in the soap opera Pepper Young's Family, and he was still going strong in 1974, when he appeared often on the CBS Mystery Theater.  He also appeared in guest roles on various television shows in the 1950s and 1960s. 

This episode, Acquitted, about a policeman with a temper that often gets him into trouble, first aired on July 3, 1947.
