Photo of the Dead is a good-quality Casey program. Cole likes stories that have a touch of the supernatural, and this one is a little switch in that it's a scammer they're trying to catch. Psychic phenomena (and scams) were a big deal in the early 20th Century, and even captured Arthur Conan Doyle's interests as he investigated spirituality. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]  

ADC’s continuity notes...
Casey has known old "Dad" Phelan for years. And when -Phelan comes to Casey at his office, the lensman is completely sympathetic because he knows Phelan is still mourning for his wife,·who·died several. years ago. Phelan tells Casey that he has become interested in spiritualism, through a woman who has introduced him to a medium named Swami Theda Narsi. Narsi has produoed a "spirit photograph" of Phelan’s dead wife. The old man is happy about the photo, but wants Casey to advise him about its authenticity. Casey believes the photo has been faked, but in order not to disillusion Phelan, Casey tells him it is genuine. Casey plans to visit Narsi and denounce him for exploiting Phelan's grief. Before he can go, Casey is given an unexpected out-of-town assignment. When Casey returns to town, he finds that "Dad” Phelan has been found·dead in his gas-filled room. A bank-book shows $20 remaining from a $6,000 account. Casey is convinced that Phelan has been driven to suicide by the Swami. There is no concrete evidence·of Narsi's double-dealing, so the police are powerless·to act. But Casey, with Ann's valuable help, devises a scheme which leads to the solution of the case.

“Swami” is a term that originates with Hinduism, but the word is broadly used to describe spiritual advisors and even business experts.

This plotline of a fleecing psychic is not new, and seems to play out the same way, no matter what series or -- ahem -- medium it is performed in. All of us have seen dramas, comedies, and other television and movie presentations that include it.

Houdini became the bane of psychics and fortune tellers. This website relates some of his more prominent exploits in this regard. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

12:55 Burke the city editor finally gets a speaking part. He supplies the background story from his family as the foundation of the scheme to catch the Swami. Ann gets to go undercover, so no one can say where she is. This seems to drive Casey a little crazy. This is a big step for the character of Ann in her career and also in terms of the character development in the series. The character is much more than window dressing.

21:50 $10,000 is what Ann gives Swami as part of the trap. Cole likes big numbers: this is almost $120,000 in today’s value. It’s the newspaper’s money!

25:00 Are we supposed to believe the fight scene? Radio fight scenes always seem so hokey, with the participants announcing their punches or pains, and justifying their actions, and claiming victory. Some are more believeable than others; this doesn't seem to be one of them.

27:25 Casey asks to go out for a walk with Ann, and seems a little nervous about doing it. Ethelbert seems befuddled, and says “so long, Ethelbert” but stops before he can finish once he realizes he’s just repeating what Casey and Ann just said. It’s not a flub. His sister Edna’s quote is “Absence makes the brain grow dumber and a walk on a nice night may be dangerous business for an unmarried bachelor.” Could something real between Casey and Ann be developing here? Or will Cole tease us so we keep listening?

Friday 2/7 is a big day for Mrs G as she will have various imaging and tests and we hope to learn the date for the surgery. We've been doing lots of reading and lots of errands as we prepare. And... Ol' Greybelt has been getting laundry lessons!! Smile

Bright New Star is a rather pedestrian entry in the Casey series that involves jealousy in the casting of a play as an old star fades and a new one emerges, and the perils of fraud and getting involved with the wrong people.

ADC's continuity notes...
The title is "Bright New Stars" in the notes, which implies the notes are prepared before broadcast, where the title is in the singular.
A beautiful but unknown young actress, Allyson Stevens, draws Casey and Ann Williams into a thrilling murder mystery. Miss Stevens has drawn rave notices from theatrical critics in the out of town try-outs of a new musical comedy produced by an old-time Broadway impresario, Hartley Owens. Owens, both as a publicity stunt and because of Allyson Stevens' importance to his show, insures the life of the bright new star for $250,000. On the evening before the plays opening, Casey and Ann interview Owens at the theatre. where they meet Bernice Rolfe, a well-established star who has been relegated to the second lead by Allyson’s magnificent performance. They also meet Murray Solano, a racketeer and admirer of Allyson and who plainly has been used by the ambitious girl as one stepping stone in her career. And now that her success is assured, she is anxious to get rid of him. The next evening, a few hours before the scheduled opening of the play, Allyson is found dead in her hotel suite. Several members of the cast of the new play, including Bernice Rolfe and Solano have neighboring suites to Allyson’s and are implicated. Judging by his past criminal record, his motive and opportunity  for the brutal murder, suspicion falls on Solano who disappears. Acting fast in a thrilling climax, Casey and Ann discover the murderer in an eerie and mysteriously exciting solution to the case.

The $250,000 insurance is $3 million in 2020 terms.
SRO is an acronym for "standing room only."

17:00 Ethelbert tells Joe that Colonel Bernstein, another character with no spoken lines, wants another mint julep. The bar is out of mint but Joe says he will get it. Ethelbert complains to Casey that Joe lets things go behind the bar. Casey and Ann are a bit in disbelief as they know Ethelbert is not the most organized, either.

20:00 Ethelbert is full of information from the bartenders grapevine. It turns out that gangsters Big Jim Maxon and Heinie Troutman owned shares. Owens sold 140% of the show!

22:49 We know there’s a gun when Logan says “gimme that gun” once Owens shows while Logan attempts to handcuff him.

Roger DeKoven played Hartley Owens. DeKoven had a very good career on Broadway and a gig on the TV soap Days of Our Lives, as well as numerous television and movie roles. He was also in many episodes of CBSRMT. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
He was listed in Red Channels but signed various documents that got him out from under the worst of it.

The most famous incident of selling “watered stock” in a play that is expected to fail is The Producers. Newspaper searches did not yield any particular news item that may have inspired Cole. The Producers was inspired by Mel Brooks experience with generally failed producer Benjamin J. Kutcher who would get money from elderly widows and spinsters to finance awful plays and productions. Brooks had also noticed that producers of failed productions still seemed to live well. That's not the case in this Casey episode: the lesson learned here is if you're going to commit stock fraud, don't take money from gangsters.

Another treatment of gangsters and Broadway is Woody Allen's Bullets over Broadway
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Allen's film was inspired by a sketch of the same name while he was a writer for Caesar's Hour in September 1955.

Gangsters and actresses and funding of plays was part of Mae West's life
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
and also a 1929 film Broadway [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Cole drew from a common real-life plotline that would have been very familiar to listeners. West's financier was gangster Owney Madden (who owned the famous Cotton Club), and perhaps the name of Hartley Owens in this episode was partly derived as "Owney" and "Owens" are similar.

Death in Lovers Lane begins with a mention of the anniversary of Anchor-Hocking's sponsorship. Their support changed and enriched the series... but the sponsorship would not have a second anniversary. It would end less than eight months later when A-H did not realize the bump up in sales they expected for the amount of money they were paying.

There were 432 episodes, with many repeats that have yet to be detected. The A-H run is the most intact, with 54 surviving episodes, representing 62% of that part of the run. The Philip Morris run survives mainly as AFRS recordings, with 22% surviving, represented by 15 episodes. Between the Toni run and the two sustaining runs, only 11 episodes survive, meaning more than 97% of the episodes of those periods are missing. That is disappointing, but the A-H episodes are the prime cut of the series, and we are lucky to have them. (The following data are subject to revision, but are accurate based on what is known at this moment).

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

ADC continuity notes...

A series of murders has been committed in Lovers Lane. They have all followed the same pattern: a man and woman, in a parked car, have been found robbed and dead,  and near them a card imprinted "I.M. Death". The police send out two detectives, a man and a woman, to pose as lovers in a parked car in lonely Lovers Lane. They are approached by a man who says he is a policeman and asks for money or be will turn them in. The real detective draws a gun, and the imposter does the same. In the ensuing exchange of shots, the real detective is wounded and the imposter escapes. The police arrive, comb the surrounding woods for the poser, believing he must be the wanted murderer, and finally find him dead. Near him is a card – "I.M. Death." Casey and Ann arrive to take part in the all-out hunt tor the murderer. They round up the people living in the vicinity of the murders. There's Old Eph, a hermit. Eph hates the world which he has renounced… A professor, Clarence Butterworth - an amateur detective and teacher of psychology -- and a Mrs. Norman Julian who has been unhappily married and might be extremely bitter about young lovers. After a series of exciting complications, Casey gets to the bottom of things and traps the real murderer.

"Eph" is pronounced "eef" in the program.

9:20 Butterworth says he teaches psychology at “Sylvester Normal.” “Normal” is barely used any more to describe schools and colleges, but the idea was to convey societal norms to those being trained to become high school teachers. The term dates back to the 1600s. Strangely, “Sylvester normal” is a concept in matrix algebra, named after 1800s mathematician James Joseph Sylvester.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

14:22 Police believe that Eph says “I’m Death,” making him a suspect, but it sounds like he’s really saying “I’m deaf.” The problem is that he has a gun and starts shooting, which obviously increases suspicion that he is the killer.

17:35 Eph says he has nitroglycerin, which, under the right conditions, is a contact explosive. Nitro has since been replaced by more stable alternatives that are easier to handle and manage. The bottle did not explode when he threw it (it could have landed safely in some dust or plant growth, but it also could have been cold in the cave; nitro has a very high freezing point)

21:22 Casey stops in Lovers Lane with Ann. Butterworth does not realize it’s them and approaches them as the killer does. He is clearly mad, saying that you can’t understand a killer’s mind, unless you become a killer, too.

23:00 Casey threatens Butterworth with the tiny bottle of nitro and he faints. Casey doesn’t believe it’s nitro because it didn’t explode when Eph threw it.

24:30 Sirens are in the distance and it’s Logan and other cops. They’re relieved to find Casey and Ann,  and Logan tells them that the bottle was real nitroglycerin!

27:15 It turns out that Butterworth fainted because he recognized it as real nitroglycerin and not fake. Ethelbert faints and falls to the floor at the mere idea of it… and Casey calls for Walter’s help.

The theme of amateur criminology appears again, later in the series. Ethelbert studies the topic in Scene of the Crime, one of the funnier episodes of Casey.

The idea of studying criminology by living a criminal’s life was the basis of the 1937 play and successful 1938 movie The Amazing Dr. Clitterhouse, so the idea was part of the culture and easy for Cole to tap into and get the audience to accept.

It was a popular radio play. There are productions of Clitterhouse in circulation from AFRS Frontline Theater, Best Plays, Studio One, and Texaco Star Theater. A Theater Guild version is missing.

At the opening of The Chivalrous Gunman broadcast, Casey asks if Tony had meetings at the United Nations. The UN was in its early formation, and meetings were in progress at Lake Success, NY, a village on Long Island. Lake Success was the temporary home of the UN from 1946-1951, and is an easy train ride from Manhattan’s Penn Station on the Long Island Railroad. It's right next to Garden City. Is Casey’s city New York or Boston? In this episode, it’s New York. What will it be next time?

ADC continuity notes...
Scene opens in the office of the J.J.Titus Co., whose business is private loans. It’s long after working hours. There are three men busily engaged at the door of a massive safe. Suddenly, a door opens and a girl walks in - she’s the office stenographer, Miss Birch. She recognizes. two or the men as employees of the firm. The men grab the money and the girl and flee. They intend to do away with the girl but Ed (the fellow elected to do the job) suddenly has a change of character and very gallantly releases the girl. This angers the other fellows. An argument and shooting follows which results in the death of the two fellows. Ed warns the girl not to talk to to the police about what has happened - and he disappears. Logan and Casey are assigned to the case. They find the girl and try to get some info. from her as to the identity of the killer but she won t talk. They bring in several suspects but she refuses to recognize any of them. Casey has a feeling that she is more deeply involved than what appears on the surface... and that she is protecting the killer. With this in mind, Casey concocts a scheme that makes the girl break down and identify the killer and also confess her love for the gunman.

This episode has a particularly violent beginning, with a young woman being taken to be killed because she stumbles on the crime, and one of the criminals shooting his two comrades. While Casey episodes report violent acts, this may be one of the more violent openings. One of the killed criminals, Riker, did live long enough to report what happened.

3:07 What a mild explosion to open a safe, an office safe that is described as "massive" in the continuity notes. Shouldn’t there be a noise with the door being “blown clean off”? We should hear the door fall to the floor at least.

7:10 Cole gives us a new word treat in the presence of a firearm: “You have a gat in your mitt, huh, Gus?”

13:00 A new bar patron is introduced, Mr. Ebersole. Ethelbert is talking to him about baseball, and is interrupted by Casey and Ann arriving. Casey asks who he is, but Ethelbert never explains. Ethelbert says the season will end in a big surprise. He’s wrong: the Yankees and Dodgers were leading their leagues at the time of the broadcast and met in the World Series, with the Yankees winning in 7. Both teams had big leads in August 1947, and basically played just well enough to maintain them. Some of their competitors finished the season strongly, but it wasn't enough to catch up. World Series [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

In the Blue Note discussion, Casey thinks that Miss Birch and Ed were in cahoots to create a situation where Ed could kill the other two criminals.

19:00 Once more, Logan creates a meeting where criminals and suspects can meet in hopes that someone will flinch and reveal the solution to the crime. This one is with Birch and another criminal – she does not recognize him, at least according to what we hear, but Ann and Logan dialogue indicates she clenched her fist, showing nervousness, even though it did not show in her voice. Casey watched Neil instead and that he was relieved to see Birch and that she pretended not to recognize him. Their voices were cold, but their demeanor showed something else to the keen eyes of Ann and Casey.

20:23 Casey explains about his knowledge of women by saying “I read about them in books.” Cole is setting up the episode’s closing light moment with this line.

When Casey and Logan set up their next scheme to trap Birch, they plan to use jealousy as the catalyst. The phrase “green-eyed monster” is used, a metaphor for jealousy. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
It is from Shakespeare’s Othello, Act III, Scene 3:
O, beware, my lord, of jealousy!
It is the green-eyed monster which doth mock
The meat it feeds on.

This was a time when many high-school grads would know such a line and the broader general public would be aware of such a phrase, even though only about 10% of the public had some level of college education at the time of the broadcast (today it's more than doubled for grads and partial college in the population).

Birch is held as a witness for a long time, something that would not be possible for this long according to the story. They try to make Birch jealous of Neil, whom they suspect is Ed, by placing her in a cell that has a sightline to the visitors room of the jail. It turns out that it works. Birch breaks down when she is told that the regular blonde visitor of Neil is his wife from Minneapolis. Birch exclaims that Neil is Ed and that he had promised to marry her!

26:50 At the Blue Note, it’s explained that it wasn’t Neil’s wife but a policewoman pretending to be that.

27:44 Casey asks Ann how she knows so much about men. She emphatically states “NOT from reading books.” Ethelbert chuckles and stops and then says “...huh?” as he is surprised not so much by what Ann says, but the way she says it. Ethelbert was not in the scene where Casey made his comment earlier. Casey is street-wise about crime, but Cole makes us understand that Ann is much wiser about romance than Casey is.

There is a moment in the episode where Ann makes comments about not knowing exactly why men are attracted to blonde women… yet in the Casey comic book Ann is always drawn as a blonde!

Medical news... we're all set for surgery on Wednesday 2/12. The time has not been revealed yet. The pre-surgical evaluation went well, and it is expected that the "face down" recovery weeks may be shorter. We're in a good place, Duke University Medical Center, for the procedure. Today, I am being trained for the subtleties of laundry. As for meals during recovery, I hope Mrs. Greybelt likes grilled cheese... a lot Smile  We will be homebound for a while but neighbors and an occasional visit of Greybelt the Younger will give me breaks for errands and breaks to Mrs GB just to have some different company. Being in NC the weather is variable enough to have some very warm days where Mrs GB will be able to go into the screened porch for some fresh air. The problem with the hole in the macula will be solved, but we will have no idea what kind of vision will result for many, many months as the eye heals slowly and the new vision settles in. It's interesting in that this surgery is not really a repair, but one that creates conditions inside the eye for it to heal itself by removing certain minute layers of the macula. Tissues and nerves are encouraged to rejoin in new ways. A gas bubble is inserted in the eye to keep the affected area inside the eye dry. Over time, as the gas bubble dissipates, the macula is healing. The doctor confirmed that the problem usually appears suddenly, and that we were not imagining that. She went from 20/20 to 20/70 in that eye plus severe distortion in less than 3 weeks. Thanks so very much for your prayers before surgery and for its recovery period.  And know that we have special gratitude to all of the Cobaltians and we do the same for you when you face these challenges.

Busman's Holiday is an odd recording because Staats Cotsworth does not appear. It is likely Cotsworth was sick, because they delayed the performance of a new script, Loaded Dice, in favor of a script pulled from the files from two years prior. 1945-01-02 Casey, Press Photographer, "Engagement Ring" was re-worked for Cotsworth's absence and re-titled "Busman's Holiday." This version was expanded Capt. Logan's part to cover Casey's dialogue as well as some of his own, and added a new police character for other of Logan's lines. A recording of the 1945 version do not exist, nor does a script. This altered 1947 version was inserted in the schedule after the newspapers had been notified that Loaded Dice would be performed. This was all last minute.

The show sounds strange... it's not a particularly compelling script to begin with... but Cole did a heroic patch job in adjusting for Cotsworth's absence. Why waste a new script to deal with such a contingency when you can re-work an old one that might be better suited to the task? Loaded Dice would be postponed for two weeks, to 1947-09-04. Finally, in this episode, after so many weeks, Bernard Lenrow gets on-air credit as Capt. Logan... they had no choice! In next week's program, he resumes his uncredited performances and returns to well-paid obscurity. Hope he enjoyed his week of radio glory.

I checked various news sources including Variety and Billboard to find some reference to the cause of Cotsworth's absence or to mark his return. There was nothing in the currently available resources. We know that Cotsworth was away visiting family in Pennsylvania. Perhaps he returned sick or he had trouble getting back to New York, or extended the vacation.

There are no continuity notes for this 1947 episode, but these are notes for 1945's Engagement Ring...
A waitress friend of Ann's is disappointed in the ring her fiance gave her because she thinks it is junk, although actually it is part of a very valuable stolen collection of old jewelry. Clifford, the boy friend, has taken it from his cousin Bernie as part payment for money Bernie took from him. When they go to Bernie's room they find the rest of the collection has been stolen. It has been taken by the real thief who came across the court hand over hand by means of a clothes line attached to the shutters.

Compared to the 1945 broadcast, Clifford's name was changed to "Harold" and Cousin Bernie was changed to "Cousin Louie."

Logan is at the Blue Note to start the show. Casey is away, and is said to be on vacation, fishing. Logan asks if Ann would spend the day with him... including going to the beach!

3:00 Ethelbert asks Walter to bring up lemons. No lines for Walter this week.

3:05 This is strange... there is no transitional music to indicate that any time has passed or that the location has changed. Logan says it's around four o'clock and he's hungry, and they may want to go back to the Blue Note. Ann suggests that they should go to Rodney's, where Casey and Ann get lunch now and then. (Does Ethelbert know that they do this? He might be heartbroken!)

9:20 Logan asks Ann if she would join him on a "busman's holiday." Ann says, yes, and that the beach is out.

11:00 Logan is talking to Captain Mallory... the character is clearly played by Ralph Bell, who is uncredited. Bell was a constant presence on CBSRMT which is how so many collectors got to know him best. If it's a New York program, it's likely that Bell was on it at some time. It is likely that Mallory's lines were originally intended for the Logan character. Since Logan's getting all of Casey's lines in this character juggling act, they needed to have some new character play the law enforcement buffoon. Mallory was likely invented for this purpose. We don't know if this was a character that Cole used in other scripts or not. We'll never know for certain unless the 1945 script or a recording of it surfaces.

and guess what... back at 7:00 Bell doubles as an unhappy Rodney's customer!

19:58 Most of the story has Logan getting re-written lines originally intended for Casey. This particular section of the story seems to have Ann getting some Casey's lines so that Logan does not dominate the scene.

"Busman's holiday" is a mainly British idiom referring to a vacation where you do the same kind of work that you do in your job, for pay. A "busman" is a "bus driver" in US terminology. Prior to air travel, buses would take people to their vacation destinations and on tours. For long trips, the driver would stay overnight with the group, too. In that sense, the bus driver enjoyed their stay and the sightseeing as well, almost as if they were on vacation themselves. For this episode, Logan and Ann have time off, but get caught up in the story and end up solving a case. The term has fallen out of use, but the current word "workcation" has not really replaced it. This new word is getting work done while at a different place of your choosing, with work as the primary objective. The "busman" has no choice about the location of the supposed vacation but literally goes along for the ride.

Clotheslines are practically obsolete nowadays, with so many households having dryers. The idea of running clotheslines between buildings is practically unknown now. The execution of the crime using a clothesline as written would not be possible today, so Cole would need to employ a different method. I doubt it was really possible in 1947, too, as most of these were too flimsy to support a person's weight, especially if they were moving. I could find no news stories involving a clothesline for burglary that might have inspired Cole in this regard. The newspapers from this period, however, had an amazing number of stories about clothing pilfered from clotheslines reported to the police.

There are no newspaper clippings for the 1945 or the 1947 performances.

This is a news clipping showing that Loaded Dice was originally scheduled. CBS public relations did not have time to get word out about the change in script to newspapers. This makes me believe Cotsworth was unexpectedly ill.

According to Billboard, the average weekly talent cost for Casey under A-H was $8,000, or about $96,000 in today's US dollars. That was more than the cost of Suspense under Roma Wines! Casey was often getting better ratings than Suspense. The ratings for Suspense would vary depending on the guest star. But Casey had a consistent cast, so its ratings tended to be in a narrower range.

If you downloaded the recording of Busman's Holiday, please note that I have revised the post to included another recording, this additional one processed to reduce background hum and rumble. I think it's better.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Hide-Out is not one of the series better entries, but is still an entertaining listen. Copies in circulation have disc scratch, rumble, and other noise. For that reason, there are two copies being posted, one of which has been processed to minimize these problems. There may be some small audio defects created in the effort to deal with the larger issues.

The title is intended to be hyphenated and not two separate words per Cole's notes.

Cotsworth is back from his one-week hiatus.

The episode relies on Casey's knowledge of local criminals and their associates.

ADC continuity notes...
Luke Davis, a notorious robber and killer is hiding out -- and the hiding place is costing him a pretty penny. Resentment towards the hide-out proprietor leads Luke Davis to commit murder. Then he and his moll, Doris, are forced to take refuge on short notice. Luke knows his way around so he anticipates no trouble and he has none at first. Casey covers the murder or the first hide-out proprietor. Evidence at the scene indicates the calling, of the proprietor and the identify of his murderer, But the dead man, known as Creepy Bliss, is only small fry in the hide-out business. It is obviously directed by somebody who is a big operator. Casey talks to "Barney" Rubin, operator of Barney's Bar. Barney, who has always helped the police and newspaper people, promises to help. His assistance is great indeed. Casey finds Luke Davis and his moll. And he finds the big operator of the hide-out racket. But the search is difficult and excitingly dangerous and Casey and Ann get themselves into several tight spots before they crack the case.

4:16 "Creepy" asks for $1,000 a week for use of the hide-out. That's not much for someone who stole $100,000, but it's still a lot of money. The 2020 adjusted prices are $12,000 and $1.2 million!

9:25 Capt. Logan says to Casey "That comedy, Casey, is strictly Joe Miller." He's referring to Casey making a bad joke. Joe Miller was a joke-teller, an early 1700s English actor. "Joe Miller's Jest Book" was published in 1739. The Wikipedia entry can be found at [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
with some additional background at [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] The book can be read online at [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] CBS Radio Workshop did a whole show about it on 1956-11-04 [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

16:00 Ethelbert reports something an acquaintance told him about one of Davis' habits. This is yet another case where Ethelbert's grapevine gives Casey an insight. In this case, it leads to Barney's Bar... and the realization that Barney is not as helpful a citizen as they thought, and is playing the police just as much as he is playing the criminals he is helping to hide. Casey figures a way to have Barney tip his hand and catch the Davises in the process.

25:50 Casey immobilizes Davis... and because it's radio... he supplies his own fight commentary. Radio is known for being a theater of the mind, but this kind of commentary during altercations and "you've got a gun" are weak points of the medium... but there are far more strong points which earn our deep affection for the medium and the era.

27:06  Grace says "good night" to Ethelbert, and he's not paying attention... but then he realizes it's Grace and he perks up. She leaves, forgetting her umbrella, Ethelbert calls to her, but she keeps walking. A few seconds later, she returns, drenched, and Ethelbert tells Walter to get the mop. Walter has no lines... again...

Loaded Dice is a poorly executed episode from a production standpoint. The performance sounds a lot like people standing around  a microphone presenting a script that is very pedestrian, with nothing compelling to draw the listener into the story. What makes it all the more disappointing is that they had an extra couple of weeks to work the kinks out of the script and the technical aspects of production since it was postponed for Cotsworth's absence two weeks prior. One of the reasons for the problem is the show's use of a new performance and audio capture technique, detailed in a CBS press release.

ADC continuity notes...
Casey receives a phone call from Steve Drake, a professional gambler. Drake is greatly perturbed and in response to his urgent request, Casey goes to his apartment. There, on the floor of his living room, Drake points to a blood-stained knife which he says he discovered after being awakened suddenly by a sound he thinks was made by the close of his apartment door. They enter the adjoining apartment where they find the body of its tenant, Foster Blassett, a wealthy playboy, slumped in front of his door. He has been stabbed to death. Drake and Blassett not been on good terms, and the former sees a frame-up in the circumstances - a viewpoint that is not shared by the police whom Casey quickly calls in. Drake is charged with murder and even Casey is half-convinced that the gambler brought him into the case to establish an appearance of innocence that is not warranted by the apparent facts. The police search Blassett's apartment and find loaded dice. At first, the dice seem to link Drake even more securely to the murder. But Casey takes the trouble to learn that Blassett has won rather heavily in a dice game run by another gambler - not Drake. Following an exciting danger-packed trail of loaded dice, Casey finds the real killer.

1:56 The phone call filter does not seem to be working correctly when Drake calls Casey. Did someone flip the wrong switch on the control board?

7:37 Casey kids Logan that he's been on hold for a half hour when it's just been minutes. They're used to razzing each other and probably miss it if they can't do it.

16:40 The lab reports to Logan that the dice were loaded! They're a really bad set because they are too consistent in delivering the desired numbers, making them easily detectable.

"Stickman" is one of the key people in a craps game. Casey thinks the bad loaded dice could only work if the "stickman" was in on the scheme. Learn about it all at the Wikipedia page [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

22:28 Doesn't Everett walk just a little too calmly into the room where Parker was just murdered in front of Casey, Logan, and Ann? The scene and the identification of the solution just doesn't work.

The issues with this broadcast could be the production team struggling with a new technique of capturing the audio. If you've ever wondered why some Casey shows sound "echo-y" or like they're being done in a theater, this is why. Loaded Dice may be the first episode where it is used as it has some of these characteristics... and the opening phone call to Casey from Drake may be the first tip-off that something is quite different. Eventually, they seem to get it right, and the Casey program starts having a unique sound, but I don't think the technique was broadly adopted. Below is a November 1947 press release that reports a timeline that would include this broadcast.

Graveyard Gertie used a script from 1946-02-25 with the same name. It's a fun script with a sympathetic character who endears herself to Casey and Ann but meets an unfortunate end. Somehow, she gets the last word on the case in an amusing way through her peculiar "companion." There are no continuity notes for this 1947 broadcast. It is quite interesting how much detail is in the notes for the new scripts under A-H sponsorship and how brief the notes are for the time it was a sustained program.

ADC continuity notes from the 1946 broadcast, errors included...
Casey and Ann make the acquaintance of an old woman known as Graveyard Gertie, who is a vaudeville performer and lives alone near the cemetary with only a stuffed snake named Roger as a companion. Later the old woman disappears and a live snake is found in the box with the stuffed one. One of the gravediggers had murdered her for her money and confesses when he is bitten by the live snake which he thinks is poisonous.

0:30 Ethelbert says he never got past the "Fourth Reader." He's referring to McGuffey's Eclectic Fourth Reader, a common and foundational textbook for grammar school students. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

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

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

10:39 Convinced that Gertie has a dead body in the trunk, both Casey and Ann are shocked when "Roger" the stuffed snake powered by a spring pops out of the trunk. The snake, when living, was part of Gertie's act, but when it died, she had it stuffed.

Everyone loves the old spring-loaded snake in the can trick. It was invented just over 30 years prior to the broadcast. None of us can remember a time when there wasn't a spring-loaded snake can, and it's become one of the most ubiquitous tricks in kids magic tricks kits.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

14:26 Gertie is missing and all of the cabinets are open, and "Roger's" head is sticking out of the trunk. Someone was looking for what Gertie was hiding. Casey's certain Gertie has been murdered.

17:58 A cough from the audience! It happens during an inopportune time when Casey and Ann are discussing in the quiet of Gertie's home. Cotsworth was staunchly against audiences in dramatic broadcasts like Casey.

20:00 Two major ethnicities of New York ... or is it Boston ... of Italian and Irish are portrayed. This had to be part of an actor's skill at that time, and is frowned upon today.

22:20 Casey's plan of relating that Gertie's money is hidden in the trunk works... and Joe is the culprit. It is funny that Logan is with Casey and Ann after protesting so much that this wasn't a murder case.

24:20 Joe confesses thinking his snake bite was from a poisonous copperhead. Casey admits that he and Logan put a non-poisonous snake in the box and rigged some nails to make it feel there was a bite to anyone putting their hand in the box. They said they got the snake from the zoo. Under current rules about handling animals, no zoo would agree to lending out one of their collection under this circumstance.

27:35 Casey reveals that Gertie really only had $10 to her name ($120 in today's dollars) and that he and Ann inherited "Roger" and his trunk. Ethelbert asks what they plan to do with it. At that very moment (27:46) a delivery man asks for Ethelbert Gibson to sign for delivery of the trunk to the Blue Note. Casey and Ann leave Ethelbert befuddled as to what he should do with such a thing, and the closing music begins. John Gibson played Ethelbert from the beginning, and was the longest running actor in the Casey series on both radio and television. This was the first time in any of the recordings that Ethelbert's last name was used, and he is not mentioned in any of the other broadcasts that exist either (but we are listening to each of the shows again to be sure!). We have yet to have a recording that mentions Casey's first name, Jack, but it is mentioned in newspaper clippings.

Gertie was played by Abby Lewis. She was known for being able to play much older women in theatrical productions as well as on the radio.
