Adventures by Morse (OTRR Certified)


ADVENTURES BY MORSE - From January 16, 1939 to January 26, 1952, stories from the pen of Carlton E. Morse graced the airwaves. The main ones remembered are One Man's Family, I Love A Mystery, and Adventures by Morse. Adventures by Morse related the escapades of Captain Bart Friday and Skip Turner, two San Francisco private investigators. Friday was a no-nonsense type, raised in the California. Turner was quite a bit the lady's man, complete with a laconic Southern accent. Their occasional work for U.S. Military Intelligence takes them around the globe. The series consisted of eight serials that ran from October 26, 1944 to October 18, 1945. The first serial, "City of the Dead", consisted of ten episodes. The second serial was done in three episodes. The remainder of the series lternated between ten and three 30-minute episodes. The adventures cover the world as well as the world of adventure. They take place on a South Pacific island, South America, Cambodia, and South Carolina plus other locations. They deal with murder, espionage, Nazi secret bases, kidnappers, voodoo and even snake worshippers. If you're looking for adventure, you'll find it here.

  1. About "The city of the Dead"..............
    I really liked the story but the young couple were the worst!! she is intolerable and he acts like her guardian or something ?.....anyway, they suck.
    Which is too bad because it's a good mystery, I thought.

  2. Is there a cast list anywhere for this show? I recognize some of the other voice actors from other shows but cannot find out who they are. I know, specifically, that the same actor who plays Dr Howard Carter in The Cobra King Strikes Back is also the voice actor in a Suspense episode, called The Visitor (1944) with Eddie Bracken, whose character's name is Mack Burrell.

    1. See I thought the doctor was played by Harry Morgan of Dragnet and MASH fame. Trying to find an actors list, but to no avail.
