I'm just catching up on listening to the final few episodes. I just listed to 50-06-15 345 Unlucky Numbers, and the story sounded very familiar. The story is almost identical to an episode of the Big Story 07-21-48 about a lottery racket. Same writer, and some of the dialogue in the Casey episode was almost identical to the dialogue in the Big Story episode.

You are absolutely right!

This is the writing credit for The Big Story of 1948-07-21:

Here's the script...

When I was listening and doing the write-up, the reason I mentioned that "numbers" was called "lottery" in the South was because of the research we did on The Big Story last year.  

But I didn't make more of a connection than that! So thank you very very much!

And now we understand why there was credit for both Gail and Harry for the Casey episode. Gail wrote The Big Story episode, and Harry's part of the collaboration was Casey-izing it!

It is fascinating to have the script in front of you as you're listening to the Casey recording.

Gail and Harry each contributed scripts to The Big Story. After Harry's death, Gail contributed scripts to The Big Story television series.

This chart shows some of the changes Harry made to the script:

The ending is much different and is newly written. The epilogue at the Blue Note has some similarities to the Big Story script.

This is an interesting side story about a Toni-era program that is missing. It's You are the Killer broadcast on March 3, 1949. It's the only Casey that I have found that is drawn from a real life news story.

These are the ADC continuity notes for the episode:

This is the CBS press release:

These are clips for the episode:

This was one of those situations where I stumbled on the entire story by accident. I've even forgotten the specifics of what I was originally searching for!

This is the clip that sent me exploring... the photographer mentioned is Pat Candido of the New York Daily News.

1949-02-27 Sioux City IA Journal

Pat tells the story to Popular Photography magazine.

This is the news story behind it. A crazed man shoots a priest hearing confessions. The priest is shot in the leg and survives. Cole changes the story to a judge and makes some other adjustments.

This is some of the original NYDN coverage.

ONE LAST TIME
for a while at least... I promise!

A newly revised version of the Casey log is at
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Thanks to some help of fellow OTRR members at the groups.io site, a correction was made to a couple of entries. The process of hunting down those errors led me to review all of the CBS press releases I have which brought some other curious items to focus, and those have been corrected as well.

This was all tedious work and it felt really really good to be done and have many of those issues settled!

There may be some other resources that can help with clarification and verification, but those are likely many weeks away from being available with various closures and hours limitations of libraries and other institutions.

I still believe there are many more repeated scripts to be identified. Of the 67 Philip Morris broadcasts, only 30 were new scripts, and that does not include "Thunderbolt" which takes large portions of plot and dialogue of "Gentle Strangler" but not the script in its entirety.

This is a link to the PDF version of the spreadsheet.

This file should be considered as a "snapshot" of the information as of the morning of April 16, 2020

THANK you again so very much for your help!

You are an inspiration, greybelt. I need to get hypnotized by my research as soon as possible. Thanks for an invaluable resource.

For some reason, none of my searches of data bases came up with a review of Flashgun Casey though I had heard there was one.

Thanks to a helpful friend in OTRdom, this is a review from Variety that gives some details about the cast.

1943-07-14 Variety
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I'm still having a lot of trouble finding a source that details when Herman Chittison joined the cast. I can find lots of information about the gigs he was doing around the country, but not about Casey.

Thanks for all your great research, greybelt. Do you have all the Casey reviews from Variety? I think they reviewed the show just about every year.

I can't find any other Variety reviews of the radio program beyond this one, but I can of the some of the TV attempts and the TV series.

I have the Billboard review of the first Anchor-Hocking episode (1946-08-08), and the first Toni episode.

I can't find any others. I tried looking in Variety and Billboard again for a Casey, Press Photographer review to see if that mentions Chittison. None came up.
