In the Corner with Dan Hughes

Jul 30, 2013

Some radio shows were so popular that the rival networks ran imitations. 

The Adventures of the Abbotts was in a way a copy show.  It was about a sophisticated married couple who solved mysteries, a la Nick and Nora Charles, and Mr. and Mrs. North.

But this particular copy was pretty much as good as (and sometimes better than) the originals.  The Abbotts began as a series of novels by Frances Crane.

This episode, The Fabulous Emerald Necklace, first aired on April 3, 1955.
