The character of Jack "Flashgun" Casey was first penned by former newspaper and advertising executive, George Harmon Coxe, Jr. in the March 1934 issue of Black Mask, the legendary Pulp Magazine. Casey was a cameraman who took photographs that accompanied reporter's newspaper stories. His keen eye for detailed served him well at solving the crimes he was assigned to photograph. "Flashgun" Casey was an instant success with the Black Mask readers and soon made the leap to the silver screen and to radio. Jim Backus (TV's Thurston Howell the Third) was radio's first Casey, but was replaced early on by Staats Cotsworth. Casey, was aided in his amateur detecting by his fellow reporter Ann Williams (Jan Miner, best known as Madge, the spokeswoman for Palmolive) who, like Casey, worked for The Morning Express. When not at work, they frequented The Blue Note Cafe, a late night lounge where bartender, Ethelbert, provided both a sounding board and levity for Casey and Ann as they awaited their next call to a crime scene. Casey, Crime Photographer ran on radio from 1943 until 1955, sponsored for most of its run by Anchor Hocking Glass, and made the transition to TV with Richard Carlyle and later, Darren McGavin in the title role. 7/3/47 Acquitted 7/10/47 Lady Killer 7/31/47 Bright New Stars 8/7/47 Death in Lover's Lane 9/4/47 Loaded Dice 12/4/47 The Serpent Goddess 1/15/48 The Miracle 1/29/48 The Piggy Bank Robbery 2/12/48 Key Witness 4/13/50 The Disappearance of Mr. Dizzel 6/15/50 Unlucky Numbers 1/20/54 Source of Information
