A rich and evil woman and her paramour frame a harmless drunk for the murder of a cabbie.

M. Peters

A fabulously wealthy woman plots to murder her husband with the help of her husband’s assistant. When a cab driver intervenes he too is killed. A local bum is picked up for the crime being in possession of the cabby’s ring. Police investigate and discover much of their evidence missing.

Victor Woods

An interesting story, but not the best. There are too many coincidences at the end for it to sit well with me.

Alec

A poor recording but a good story with a fun twist at the end!

I rate this episode ★★★★☆ for GOOD. Sam Dann wrote a suitable detective story. Suspenseful plot points, good-natured protagonists, and greedy antagonists. But the Finale was so-so. No scandalous revelation, nor murderous revenge. And the only "Pharaoh’s Daughter" story that we have ever heard, was from the Book of Exodus when she found Moses in the Nile River. This Drama-Mystery should be titled “Pry & Probe.” In our Host’s Prologue, E.G. Marshall’s topic of discussion is death and how people are able to get around it. In ACT-1, introduce a few characters and use the Spider & Fly as a metaphor. In ACT-2, our last hero in this story has an ache of doubt. In ACT-3, the last detective on the case always went by the book. But more importantly, after the climax, our Host narrates on conflicting interests. In his Epilogue, E.G. Marshall concludes that some people feel it’s their privilege to rule everyone and how judicially they do it. Food for thought narrations. Sound effects of traffic noise, cab engine running, tires screech, howling wind, silencer, doors, dialing rotary phone, background noise at police stations, jail bars, dial payphone with coins, massive gunfire, background noise at taxicab garage, car engine stuttering, and file cabinet were perfectly helpful in the crime drama! Music tracks were highly supportive, building up the suspense in every turn. And the cast was excellent: Jack Grimes (as Eddie Judson and Jerry), Ian Martin (as Arthur K. Drake and Lieutenant Davis), Joan Shay (as Lenore Drake and Molly Gorton), Nat Polen (as Frank Hopkins and Dispatcher), and Jordan Charney (as Joseph Paulson and Sergeant Albert Gomez). Joan Shay as the controlling, yet vile widow was one of her best roles. All 5 of these performers played their double roles spectacularly. For those that enjoy detective stories with a dose of action, but with a lot of conflict, check this episode out. Until next time…pleasant dreams. =0)
