Casey, Crime Photographer Old Time Radio Program

Casey, Crime Photographer
½ hour detective show

Casey, Crime Photographer has a long and varied past. He started out in a different medium and a different persona. The character of Casey, was first written by George Harmon Coxe in the pulp fiction magazine Black Mask in the 1930s, Coxe followed this up with a few novels. In these stories Flashgun Casey was a hardboiled, brass knuckles kind of investigator. Then he came to the radio as Flashgun Casey in 1943. Shortly after his radio debut he lost the ‘Flashgun’ and was just Casey. On radio the character was much more of a smart alec, cynical, wise-cracking detective, rather than the dark figure that the pulp portrayed. (More similar to Johnny Dollar than Sam Spade.) The radio show lasted on and off the air from 1943 to 1955 changing its name from Flashgun Casey, to Casey, Press Photographer, to Casey, Crime Photographer, then just Crime Photographer. The radio show made the transition to television in 1951, starring Darren McGavin.

The character of Casey was a photographer and reporter for The Morning Express. Casey’s hangout of choice was the Blue Note Café, where he could often be found with his girlfriend Annie Williams. Also at the Blue Note was the bartender, Ethelbert. Playing music at the café was Teddy Wilson, the jazz pianist with the Benny Goodman Trio. Rounding out the cast was the police inspector Logan, and can you guess, he provides the incompetent comedic relief. The role of Casey was played by Staats Cotsworth, his girlfriend was played by Lesley Woods, Jan Miner, and others. John Gibson played Ethelbert, and Jackson Beck was the police inspector.
