Old Time Radio: PHILO VANCE "The Poetic Murder Case" (Aug 1948)

Erudite amateur sleuth Philo Vance, created by mystery writer S. S. Van Dine, originally appeared in twelve novels published in the 1920s and 1930s. In his heyday, the metropolitan detective was also portrayed in films (by William Powell and Basil Rathbone, among others) and on the radio. In fact there were three different Philo Vance radio drama series—"The Poetic Murder Case" comes from the third series (1948-50), which starred Jackson Beck as the title detective, and Joan Alexander as his girl Friday, Ellen Deering.
