Frank Race is a cultured and sophisticated investigator who, in his world travels, encounters equal measures of crime, espionage, violence, and attractive but suspicious women. A dashing combination of Johnny Dollar and James Bond, Race began his professional career as a successful attorney but, after a stint with the OSS during World War II, he found his former profession to be far too dull and predictable. Adventure had become his goal - and it quickly became his business. Heard today, 'The Adventures of Frank Race' remains engrossing, action-packed entertainment reminiscent of shows like 'The Man Called X' and 'Counterspy' - cold war-era series that say as much about the paranoia of the post-war world as they do about their audiences' love of action and suspense.
