Thanksgiving OTR: Sam Spade — Terrified Turkey Caper
This time around, we’ve got that tough-talking, hardboiled detective Sam Spade delivering some Thanksgiving-themed fun. What says “happy holidays” more than a crime-solving detective? Not much, I’d wager.
Spade, of course, was a character devised by Dashiell Hammett and was portrayed by everyone from Humphrey Bogart (in the movies) to Howard Duff (on the radio). This particular old time radio episode stars Stephen Dunne in the title roll — a bit unusual since Duff made Sam Spade famous on the radio, but OK.
As always, this episode is brought to you by our friends at OTRCat.com. If your looking to fill out that old time radio collection with some episodes available for mere cents on the dollar, turn to The Cat.
