Publisher's Summary

Just as in Volume 1 of this series, this Audio Archive presentation of The Adventures of Sam Spade, Detective Vol 2, contains two complete, 30 minute, Sam Spade radio shows, plus special commentary. Each episode is introduced by old radio aficionado and collector Bill Mills, who shares interesting behind-the-scenes anecdotes and informative facts about the program and its stars. Howard Duff stars as writer Dashiell Hammett's famous detective, Sam Spade.

In this edition are two shows that feature several of the frequently heard voice actors that supported the stories and populated the world of Sam Spade with entertaining characters. Included are bios of Laureen Tuttle, Joe Kearns, Alan Reed, and Hans Conried.

Celebrated for its light-hearted approach and breezy banter, the Spade series was a popular hit.

This is misrepresented

Terrible not the radio show itself,, it's just talk about the show, who was in it
Very disappointed

Howard Duff is no Humphrey Bogart

It may have been popular at the time, but it doesn't age well.

The plot is confusing, Spade's logic escapes me and his relationship with Effie is atrocious. I really didn't like the character.
