Box 13

Box 13 was a popular mystery adventure series broadcast from 1948 to 1950. The film star Alan Ladd played the main character Dan Holiday, a newspaperman who became a mystery writer. Sylvia Picker starred as Holliday's featherbrained office assistant, Suzy, while Edmund MacDonald played police Lt. Kling. Vern Carstensen directed Box 13 for producer Richard Sanville who was also the show's announcer.
