SECRET AGENT X-9 on BBC Radio: Episode 4 "You're the Top" (1994) The End!

Yep, this is our thrilling conclusion. Did the BBC adapt any other Hammett stuff? I suppose I should find out. Hammett lasted less than a year and a half on the strip, and was reportedly canned for missing deadlines. He was no doubt happy about it, though. The Thin Man movie was such a hit that it put him in high demand, and studios were throwing big bucks at him. He did write screen treatments for the second and third flicks in the series, but unfortunately not much else.
