Movie star Alan Ladd played Dan Holiday, a former newspaperman turned mystery novelist and adventurer. To gain ideas for his books, Holiday placed an ad in the Star-Times newspaper: “Adventure wanted—will go anywhere, do anything—write Box 13, Star-Times.” It wasn’t long before his post office box became jammed with adventure offers galore. The stories follow his escapades when he responds to the letters.

Holiday always had more adventure than he had originally sought because those who responded to his ad never revealed all of their glorious, unusual, and sometimes sinister details until they met in person and the adventure had already begun. Holiday’s scatterbrained secretary, Suzy, played by Sylvia Picker, added touches of humor to this mystery-adventure and its nail-biting story lines.

Box 13 was produced by Mayfair Productions, a company run by Alan Ladd and Richard Sandville. In addition to producing Box 13, Ladd also wrote some of the scripts.

Included are these twelve exciting episodes:

“Hot Box” (26 Dec 48), “The Better Man” (2 Jan 1949), “The Professor and the Puzzle” (9 Jan 1949), “The Dowager and Dan Holiday” (16 Jan 1949), “Three to Die” (23 Jan 1949), “The Philanthropist” (30 Jan 1949), “Last Will and Nursery Rhyme” (6 Feb 1949), “Delinquent Dilemma” (13 Feb 1949), “One One Three Point Five” (20 Mar 1949), “Dan and the Wonderful Lamp” (27 Mar 1949), “Tempest in a Casserole” (3 Apr 1949), and “Mexican Maze” (10 Apr 1949).

About the Narrators

Alan Ladd (1913–1964) was an award-winning American actor and film and television producer. He found cinematic success in the 1940s and 1950s, particularly in Westerns and film noir. He is especially known for his role in the movie Shane. His awards include a Picturegoer Award for Best Actor in 1947 for the movie This Gun for Hire, and in 1953 he was named Most Popular Male Star by Photoplay magazine. He contributed as an actor or producer in more than a hundred films and television shows over the course of his career.

Sylvia Picker (1909–1981), born in New York City, was an actress known for her 1934 films Rival Romeo, Beau Bashful, and Social Splash. Picker’s most enduring role, however, was that of Alan Ladd’s ditzy secretary, Suzi, on the radio drama Box 13. Her first marriage was to screenwriter Grant Garrett.
