The Man Called X was an international espionage
thriller that aired from July, 1944 to May, 1952. Herbert Marshall
played Ken Thurston, secret agent, who traveled the world taking
on dangerous cases, frequently involving beautiful—and mysterious—women
in a variety of exotic locales. The announcer in early episodes
described Thurston as " . . . the man who crosses the ocean
as readily as you and I cross town. He is the man who travels today
as you and I will travel tomorrow. 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 us all."
The fortunate casting of gifted British actor Herbert
Marshall, whose impressive career spanned almost four decades, provided
high-quality, sophisticated shows. Marshall effortlessly played
Thurston as a suave man-of-the-world, reminiscent of Cary Grant
or David Niven, and a precursor to James Bond. The role of Pagan
Zeldschmidt, Thurston’s somewhat shady sidekick, was played by Russian-born
Leon Belasco, whose resume was almost as impressive as Marshall’s.
