In the Corner with Dan Hughes

Jun 21, 2010

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.
