Synopses & Reviews
This fully dramatized remake of a lost archive drama stars Crawford Logan and Gerda Stevenson. Enlisted by Sir Graham Forbes of Scotland Yard to help track down the mysterious Dr. Belasco, Paul, and his wife Steve find clues in cigarette lighters and bodies in shrubberies, dance the night away in louche Latin American night clubs, meet sinister manservants and suspicious foreigners, and have their lives threatened at every turn. Good thing that Steve remembered to bring along her revolver as well as her ration book.
This BBC Radio production uses the original scripts, vintage sound effects, and much of the incidental music from the missing 1947 production. As far as possible, it is a technical and stylistic replica of how that production might have sounded, had its recording survived.
