Boston Blackie, Vol. 1

The Classic Radio Collection
By Hollywood 360 & Frederick Ziv
Narrated by Richard Kollmar, Maurice Tarplin & Jan Miner / 5 hours 25 minutes

Created by author Jack Boyle, Boston Blackie was a mastersafecracker and hardened criminal who served time in a California prison.Rehabilitated, he decided to use his knowledge of the underworld to fight crimeas an amateur detective. Known as “an enemy to those who make him an enemy, friendto those who have no friend,” Boston Blackie’s exploits were adapted to film,radio, and television. Chester Morris, who had played Boston Blackie in aseries of B movies for Columbia, originated the character on radio in 1944. By1945 Richard Kollmar had taken over the title role in a radio series syndicatedby Frederic W. Ziv. Over two hundred radio episodes were produced between 1944and 1950. While investigating the cases, Blackie would invariably encounterharebrained Police Inspector Faraday (Maurice Tarplin) and always solve thecrime before Faraday could. The initial friction between Blackie and Faraday gave way as the series continued and Faraday came to recognize Blackie’s talents, occasionally even requesting his assistance. Blackie datedMary Wesley (Jan Miner), and for the first half of the series,his best pal Shorty (Tony Barrett) was on hand. Boston Blackie transitioned to television in 1951.

Episodes include “The Brandon Murder,” “The CondonRansom,” “The Baseball Player Murder,” “The Stolen Car Ring,” “The FrancesFielding Murder,” “The Winthrope Jewelry Company Thefts,” “The Paul BlaineMurder,” “Mike Harlan Escapes from Prison,” “The Old Man Graham Murder,” “TheCase of the Disappearing Plane,” “The Masked Gang Protection Racket,” and “MarySteals a Stolen Diamond Necklace.”
