The Baziloff Paper AKA: The Kuriloff Papers (Aired June 17, 1951)
Mr. Moto is small in stature but strong and an expert in judo. He was the title character of a series of books, beginning with No Hero (1935; British title: Mr Moto Takes a Hand, reprint title: Your Turn, Mr. Moto), and of eight films between 1937 and 1939, in which he was portrayed by Peter Lorre. With the beginning of World War II, Mr. Moto fell out of favor with Americans, and no new books or movies about him appeared between 1942 and 1957. A dedicated and cold-blooded spy for Imperial Japan, Moto is not a conventional hero. He does not look for opportunities to commit violence but has no problem with killing people who obstruct his plans, and he would not hesitate to take his own life if necessary. But he is a master of concealing his true nature while under cover, and usually appears dull, naive, utterly harmless. He does not try to correct the bigoted attitudes of Westerners toward him and other Asians, and is not above encouraging such condescension. It often works to his advantage, leading Westerners to ignore or underestimate him. THIS EPISODE: June 17, 1951. NBC network. "The Baziloff Paper" AKA: The Karilov Papers. Sustaining. Mr. Moto heads for mainland China to recover a secret formula that enables scientists to turn one gallon of gasoline into two. Foreign intrigue has Mr. Moto on his toes. James Monks, Fred Collins (annonuncer), Harry W. Junkin (writer), Ross Martin, Connie Lembcke, Carol Irwin (producer), Bernard Grant, John P. Marquand (creator). 28:43.

The Nameless Day (Aired November 9, 1964)
Theater Five was ABC's attempt to revive radio drama during the early 1960s. The series name was derived from its time slot, 5:00 PM. Running Monday through Friday, it was an anthology of short stories, each about 20 minutes long. News programs and commercials filled out the full 30 minutes. There was a good bit of science fiction and some of the plots seem to have been taken from the daily newspaper. Fred Foy, of The Lone Ranger fame, was an ABC staff announcer in the early 60s, who, among other duties, did Theater Five. THIS EPISODE: November 9, 1964. ABC network. "The Nameless Day". Commercials deleted. A man finds a watch inscribed to him, but dated ten years before his birth! Alexander Vlas-Daczenco (composer), Connie Lembcke, Ed Blainey (sound technician), Edward A. Byron (executive producer), Evie Juster, Fred Foy (announcer), George Petrie, Glenn Osser (conductor), Guy Sorel, Ivor Francis, Jack C. Wilson (script editor), Marty Folia (audio engineer), Richard McCracken (writer), Warren Somerville (director). 21:03. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

The Exile (Aired January 19, 1949)
Screen Director's Playhouse is a popular radio and television anthology series which brought leading Hollywood actors to the NBC microphones beginning in 1949. The radio program broadcast adaptations of films, and original directors of the films were sometimes involved in the productions, although their participation was usually limited to introducing the radio adaptations, and a brief "curtain call" with the cast and host at the end of the program. The series later had a brief run on television, focusing on original teleplays and several adaptations of famous short stories (such as Robert Louis Stevenson's "Markheim"). The radio version ran for 122 episodes and aired on NBC from January 9, 1949 to September 28, 1951 under several different titles: NBC Theater, Screen Director's Guild Assignment, Screen Director's Assignment and, as of July 1, 1949, Screen Director's Playhouse. THIS EPISODE: January 19, 1949. NBC network. "The Exile". Sustaining. A dress rehearsal recording with no music.

The Gambler (04-05-51) (Aired April 5, 1951)
The series ran two seasons, and was revived in 1949 as a syndicated program, now called The Adventures of Maisie. Included in the repertory cast were Hans Conreid (later on Life with Liugi), Sheldon Leonard, Joan Banks, Elvia Allman, Bea Benadaret, and Sandra Gould. The radio show continued in the tried and true Maisie tradition of one part adventure of the emotional kind, one part romance, and one part laughs. To the end Maisie was the single girl, as this allowed her to get involved in continuing adventures of many kinds. These radio adventures of a liberated American "dame" from Brooklyn were tailored to post-WWII, and featured Maisie making her way (and having her way, most of the time) on both sides of the Atlantic. THIS EPISODE: April 5, 1951. "The Gambler" - Program #60. MGM syndication. Commercials added locally. Maisie becomes the Las Vegas good luck charm of an Indian gambler/gangster (named "Nick The Creek!"). The program has also been identified as program #72. The date above is the date of first broadcast on WMGM, New York City. Ann Sothern, Arthur Q. Bryan, Hans Conried, Harry Zimmerman (composer, conductor), Jack McCoy (announcer), Joan Banks, John L. Green (writer), Peter Leeds, William Conrad. 28:01. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

John Carthage (Aired March 2, 1948)
The production didn't stint on talent, as hinted above. No less than Ivan Ditmars provided the music direction and in addition to Herb Lytton as 'Fate', the varying casts included Lurene Tuttle, Larry Dobkin, Hal Sawyer, Gloria Blondell, Frank Albertson, Jerry Hausner, Howard McNear, Peter Leeds, Ken Peters, Daws Butler and William Johnstone. All in all a superb well of talent from which to draw each week. While a bit difficult to document, the production remains quite collectable and the perspective of the presentation is also unique for the era--or since for that matter. THIS EPISODE: March 2, 1948. Program #12. Finley syndication. "John Carthage". Commercials added locally. Book 22, page 475. A doctor is about to die. "Fate" writes the final entry in the doctor's elegant mountain lodge.

First Attact On Haiti Fails (Aired June 19, 1953)
The name Hornblower was probably derived from the American film producer Arthur Hornblow, Jr., with whom C. S. Forester had been working prior to writing the first Hornblower novel. Forester's original inspiration was an old copy of the Naval Chronicle, which described the effective dates of the Treaty of Ghent. Because of the time required to communicate around the world, it was possible for two countries to still be at war in one part of the world after a peace was obtained months before in another. The burdens that this placed on captains far from home led him to a character struggling with the stresses of a "man alone". At the same time, Forester wrote the body of the works carefully to avoid entanglements with real world history, so Hornblower is always off on another mission when a great naval victory occurs during the Napoleonic Wars. Broadcast 1952; Transcribed in England for the BBC; aired in U.S. on CBS, then again on ABC in 1954 and Mutual in 1957. Starring Michael Redgrave as Horatio Hornblower. THIS EPISODE: June 19, 1953. Program #49. "First Attact On Haiti Fails" - Radio Luxembourg, Towers Of London syndication. Commercials added locally. A plan by Hornblower to attack a Spanish fort on Haiti...by land and from the rear! Michael Redgrave, C. S. Forester (creator), Sidney Torch (composer, conductor), Harry Alan Towers (producer, director), Philo Higby (writer). 20:56. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

The Informer (Aired May 25, 1946)
Each adaptation is finely produced and directed by Dee Engelbach, with music composed and conducted by Leith Stevens. Frank Wilson wrote the movie adaptations. John Dunning in his book,"On the Air, The Encyclopedia of Old Time Radio,"tells us why such a fine production lasted less than a year: "The House of Squibb, a drug firm, footed a stiff bill: up to $5,000 for the stars and $1,600 a week to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for use of the title. The production had all the class of a Lux or Screen Guild show…But the tariff took its toll, and after 39 weeks the series was scrapped." THIS EPISODE: May 25, 1946. Program #343. "The Informer" - CBS network origination, AFRS rebroadcast. A quality upgrade rebroadcast. AFRS program name: "Armed Forces Radio Theater." The program may be dated May 15, 1946. Victor McLaglen, Margo Graham, Wallace Ford, J. M. Kerrigan. 29:44. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

The Insomnia Caper (Aired October 24, 1948)
The Adventures of Sam Spade was a radio series based loosely on the private detective character Sam Spade, created by writer Dashiell Hammett for The Maltese Falcon. The show ran for 13 episodes on ABC in 1946, for 157 episodes on CBS in 1946-1949, and finally for 51 episodes on NBC in 1949-1951. The series starred Howard Duff (and later, Steve Dunne) as Sam Spade and Lurene Tuttle as his secretary Effie, and took a considerably more tongue-in-cheek approach to the character than the novel or movie. The series was largely overseen by producer/director William Spier. In 1947, scriptwriters Jason James and Bob Tallman received an Edgar Award for Best Radio Drama from the Mystery Writers of America. THIS EPISODE: October 24, 1948. CBS network origination, AFRS rebroadcast. "The Insomnia Caper". All Sam wants to do is get a good night's sleep, but the red-head next door just won't leave him alone! Howard Duff, Dashiell Hammett (creator), Lurene Tuttle. 26:51. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.
