The Adventures of Frank Race - Pgm 3

January 16th, 2009

We continue our weekly visit to Tom Collins in "The Adventures of Frank Race", a program recorded and first syndicated in 1949, from a near-complete run of the series in my collection.

In this week's exciting episode, Race encounters a woman in Istanbul who is being pursued by killers and is mixed up with some smugglers.  It's program 3 in the series, "The Istanbul Adventure".  Dames!  Bullets!  Fisticuffs!  Now that's the stuff to get a post-War male audience on the edge of their seats.

The show was transferred from an original set of Bruce Eells and Associates vinyl transcriptions, matrix numbers U-137477 and U-137478-N.

Oh, and be sure to check out the labels of these discs as we progress through the series.  You can see rubber stamps and notations from the different stations that ran the series from this set of discs all the way through 1957.

    It’s funny how popular dramatizations of insurance investigation apparently were! And what a window into the world of black market goods in Europe after the war…
