Crossfire from “Suspense” Old Time Radio Program 1948

Crossfire – Suspense


"You know we have a law against carrying a gun. We have that law because a gun is dangerous. Well hate, Monty’s kind of hate, is like a gun. If you carry it around with you, it can go off and kill somebody." ~Captain Finley

A man is murdered which leads detective Captain Finley (Robert Young) to investigate three soldiers. The murder victim is Jewish which becomes relevant as the story progresses, since anti-Semitic motives may be involved. In the original novel the victim was a homosexual but in 1947 it was too much of a taboo, so the murder victim was changed to be Jewish. This story is as relevant today as it was in 1947, since hate, unfortunately can exist in an era.

Listen to "Crossfire".

Originally broadcast April 10, 1948.

This hour long presentation of "Crossfire" starred Robert Young, Robert Mitchum, Robert Ryan, Sam Levine, and George Cooper. A feature film Noir of Crossfire was produced by Adrain Scott for RKO in 1947 starring the same cast.

    I heard “Crossfire” on XM radio yesterday and at the end of the show the radio actors were named. I’m sure I heard that Bill Lally (my late father-in-law) played Floyd. Is that correct? I’d like my daughters to be able to hear the show but I wasn’t able to get it to play on your website.
