Casey, Crime Photographer: Too Many Angels


Sam Spade is off this week, but will be back in action next Saturday. Filling in is the Black Mask-born creation of George Harmon Coxe, Flashgun Casey.  The story collection Flash Casey - Detective (and the character in general) was the subject of yesterday's Forgotten Books post, and can be reviewed right HERE.

The radio show, with several variations in title, ran from 1943 to 1950, then returned for a final season in '51-52. For most of the run, including this episode from Nov. 13, 1947, Casey was played by Staats Cotsworth. That's Staats on the cover of the comic book below, from Feb. 1950.
