The title hero was described in the introduction by announcer Art Gilmore with these words: "Before the war, Frank Race worked as an attorney, but he traded his law books for the cloak-and-dagger of the OSS. When the war was over, his former life was over too....adventure became his business!" Starring "Chandu The Magician" Star Tom Collins. Tom Collins, having recently completed his leading role as Chandu in the 1948 run of Chandu The Magician, returned to One Man's Family after The Adventures of Frank Race and almost got a bid to portray his Nick Lacey character from One Man's Family for the Television version of the series in 1949.
