In the Corner with Dan Hughes


Dec 2, 2014

Top Secret was an espionage series that ran on NBC in the summer and part of the fall of 1950.  It never had a steady time slot, and it was often preempted, so it didn't really get the chance it deserved to become a regular prime time thriller series.

Ilona Massey ("the new Dietrich") starred as a female spy.  She was born in Budapest, and her heavy accent was natural.  Massey appeared in several movies in the 1940s.

This episode, The Case of the Tattooed Pigeon, first aired on August 13, 1950.
