Vintage Radio: Mystery

Cloak and Dagger

Cloak and Dagger was a mystery series broadcast briefly in 1950 from May to October on NBC. The show was buried with a group of other mediocre mystery shows during the summer of 1950. It never had a sponsor and did not receive much critical attention. However, Cloak and Dagger was a surprising delight with its unpredictable plots and outstanding acting. The series was written by Winifred Wolfe and Jack Gordon and produced by Louis G. Cowan.

Cloak and Dagger came on the air during the WWII. The stories revolve around the wartime activities of the Office of Strategic Services - the OSS. With secret spy operations and dangerous undercover missions behind the enemy lines, each 30-minute episode unfolds in a tense and intriguing narrative.

The main actor, Raymond Edward Johnson, opens the show with a question reflective of its time, "Are you willing to undertake a dangerous mission for the United States, knowing in advance you may never return alive?"
