Crime Club - Death Deals A Diamond (07-17-47)  


Death Deals A Diamond (Aired July 17, 1947)
Crime Club's premiere presentation was adapted from a Doubleday Crime Club selection from 1935 titled, Death Blew Out the Match, by Kathleen Moore Knight, from her Elisha Macomber series. The second selection of the series was For The Hangman, by John Stephen Strange, first published as a 1934 Doubleday Crime Club selection. Mr. Smith's Hat, Crime Club's 9th episode was a Doubleday Crime Club selection from 1936, by Helen Kiernan Reilly, part of her Inspector McKee series. If you see a pattern developing here, it might appear that there was a tie-in between the Doubleday Crime Club and Mutual's Crime Club radio program. While there was never an explicit tie-in to the Doubleday Crime Club, it becomes clear that the selections employed throughout the series were predominately from the Doubleday Crime Club imprint canon. Crime Club's selections weren't all of 1930s vintage. Episode No. 10, Murder Goes Astray, was a 1943 selection of the Doubleday Crime Club, by Mary Violet Heberden. Nor were all of the Crime Club episodes from the Doubleday Crime Club canon. Several of the Crime Club scripts were original stories penned by Stedman Coles, the adapter and scriptwriter for the series. Show Notes From The Digital Deli. THIS EPISODE: July 17, 1947. Mutual network. "Death Deals A Diamond". Sustaining. A great diamond thief, just out of prison, is framed for another robbery. Stedman Coles (writer), Roger Bower (producer, director), Larry Haines, Charlotte Lawrence, Maurice Franklin, Reese Taylor, Joan Tompkins, King Calder. 29:18. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.
