Here are twelve exciting episodes of international intrigue from the golden age of radio.

“Wherever there is mystery, adventure, intrigue, in all the strange and dangerous places in the world, there you will find the man called X!”

Debonair British actor Herbert Marshall stars as FBI secret agent Ken Thurston, “the man who crosses the ocean as readily as you and I cross town; he is the man who fights today’s war in his unique fashion, so that tomorrow’s peace will make the world a neighborhood for all of us.” Leon Belasco plays Mr. X’s comedic sidekick, Pagan Zeldchmidt, who always turns up in remote parts of the world to assist Thurston.

The Man Called X debuted over CBS radio on July 10, 1944, moved to NBC in 1950, and continued through May 20, 1952. In 1956 Ziv Television adapted The Man Called X as a thirty-nine-episode syndicated series starring Barry Sullivan as Ken Thurston.

About the Narrators

Herbert Marshall (1890–1966) began his acting career on stage, working in London before the film era. Thanks to his mellow baritone voice, he easily made the transition from silent film to radio and sound movies. His versatility brought him roles in comedy and drama, playing everything from romantic lead to military officer, priest, and doctor—with varying degrees of villainy. By the 1950s, he lent his voice to some early sci-fi classics like Riders to the Stars, Gog, and The Fly, as well as early television playhouse programs and such series as 77 Sunset Strip.

Leon Belasco (1902–1988) was a Russian-born actor, known for his roles in Can-Can (1960), My Sister Eileen (1960), and Abbott and Costello in the Foreign Legion (1950).
