"Witness to Drama of Violence and Death"

This is not one that we can figure out it seems... there are numerous stories of violence and death in Vegas among residents and visitors over the decades that could have fit the plotline, but it could not be narrowed down.

Our hero reporter also had a spotty career newspaper-wise, but was very active in Las Vegas, serving on many panels and boards and even running for office. Our luck tracking things down is always better if the reporters just stayed put, the newspaper made a big deal about their Big Story recognition, and when digital archives of the paper are available. Sometimes the script has some clues, but these were too generic for this one. Oh well.

Here are the newspaper clippings for the episode...

The next one up has a lot of detail, and then I've gone back to the audition episode (posted earlier, and was used as episode 5) for background, and also on "Corn Cob Killer" which was posted at the beginning of this thread. And then we're all done until more The Big Story episodes are found. Sorry it's coming to a close -- it's been fun and a great challenge!

This audition program of Feature Assignment was originally posted at the beginning of the thread
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Thanks to mjnunes84 for finding this recording and getting this thread rolling... It's worth going back to the original post to get the additional details he supplied.

The audition script was revised and became episode 5 of The Big Story. Here is the cover page:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

The story now has a name, and is no longer the "Majczek Case" as it was in the audition. Aside from fictionalizing the name of the person or true case name, there are other stylistic changes. The audition was a selling tool to attract sponsorship. During the golden age, sponsors and their agencies would always play a role in placing their corporate image and products in the best light possible. This makes the audition a springboard for a new series that becomes shaped with sponsor collaboration.

The full script of program 5 is at [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and it's interesting to listen along to hear other changes were made for an overall more compelling and smoother production as well as sponsor-related tweaks.

There are news clippings early in the series where the original series name Feature Assignment got into press releases. That "feature assignment" phrase would be used in explanatory text in some press releases and shows up in early news items and ads after the name change to the more concise, and better The Big Story.

(Did the series name selection come about because of a horse with the name "Big Story" that was racing at the time? [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] Newspaper searches kept presenting stories about this horse winning a big race at Pimlico, raised by breeder Mrs. E. H. Augustus! The horse was nominated for the 1947 Kentucky Derby but was not selected. Maybe everyone thought the title sounded "familiar" but they just couldn't figure out why, or didn't want to admit to reading the Daily Racing Form for their creative inspiration. Believe it... or not!)

Here are clips for episode 5, the broadcast of the audition script revision and sponsored production of of April 30, 1947

1947-04-30 Des Moines IA Tribune
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

The original event was indeed the inspiration for Call Northside 777. It's interesting to see how the newspapers "covered up" that the shooting took place at a speakeasy! It might have been something "everybody knew" by "reading between the lines" but it was not explicitly stated in any of the news reports I found. It is mentioned in the Wikipedia page for the movie and other places now. The "witness" did not run a restaurant or a deli, she ran a speakeasy, and the police needed to show progress on this case because there were other unsolved murders in Chicago that past week. They threatened her with a bootlegging charge, and she changed her testimony, changing the lives of innocent people forever.

The trailer


The movie

I always liked the Screen Director's Playhouse version of the story [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Our reporter for the story is Jim McGuire of the Chicago Times. I can't find any details about him other than his association with this case, and that he won a Pulitzer Prize for it. But even on the Pulitzer site, I can't find his award. He did serve as an advisor to the movie. One of the sites I visited indicated that reporter McGuire was upset that the movie "whitewashed" the depth of the corruption of the Chicago police in this case.

INTERESTING NOTE: How much was the monetary award for a Pulitzer? $500! The same amount the reporter would get for The Big Story! That probably helped raise the prestige of being on the program.

But now, the real events...

Was it the police who wanted to get the case off the books to cover up the speakeasy that they allowed to operate? Is that what had them frame an innocent man?

Thread initiator mjnunes84 posted a missing episode "Corn Cob Killer" at the beginning of this thread

The hero reporter for this story was Harold Faller. Other than where he is occasionally mentioned in local stories, we can't find anything much about him.

And now.... the story of Holly Griffith
This may be one of the most bizarre situations where he kills three different people, gets life imprisonment for each, applies for parole and is regularly turned down, has people trying to get him released because he is a model prisoner who is totally reformed, until he is released for medical reasons out of mercy. Then he escapes their supervision, is recaptured, and dies in a prison hospital.

Thanks for all your outstanding research on this series, Greybelt. I also like the idea of turning the posts into an e-book, although I've been so busy lately, I can't commit to assist.

I also have a much greater appreciation of this series now. Hopefully more episodes will surface in the future.

How about this one? On a reel somewhere I have (or had) a show I listed as follows: "The Man in a Velvet Hat, John Reynolds, N.Y. Dispatch, AFRS #54 12/19/44?" Obviously the date is wrong, I can't find a New York Dispatch, only a York Dispatch, and John Reynolds was its publisher in 1988. I hope this show has been posted.

Can you send it to me offline and I can take a listen and see if I can place it in the series?

It's still on an uncatalogued reel which I can't find. I hope it's still here somewhere. If/when I find it I'll get it transferred and send it to you. I'm curious, too!

I think I figured it out -- it's a Molle episode

7333. The Molle Mystery Theatre. December 19, 1944. Program #54. NBC net origination, AFRS rebroadcast. "The Man In The Velvet Hat". A good murder-horror story a homicidal maniac killing at random. The story has a good surprise ending. AFRS program name: "Mystery Playhouse." Peter Lorre twice refers to the story as, "The Man In A Velvet Hat." A preview of the next program, "The Voice On The Wire" (from the Inner Sanctum program of November 29, 1944) is heard (see cat. #63174 for the complete broadcast). Peter Lorre (host), Jerome Prince (writer), Harold Prince (writer), Lesley Woods (preview), Karl Swenson (preview), Berry Kroeger (preview), Bernard Lenrow (as host "Geoffrey Barnes"). 31:04. Audio condition: Excellent. Complete.

That sure fits, Joe. Thanks! Now what on earth is the John Reynolds, NY Dispatch all about! I guess we'll never know.
