The Star Of Savoy (Aired June 23, 1946)
The gimmick in Rogue's Gallery was the presence of an alter ego, "Eugor," who arrived in the middle of the show to give Rogue enough information for his final deduction. Eugor was a state of mind, achieved when Rogue was knocked unconcious. Eugor would appear cackling like the host of Hermit's Cave and imparted some vital information the hero had overlooked. Rogue would then awaken with a vague idea of what to do next. Rogue's Gallery also starred different actors as Rogue, in later incarnations of the series, but Richard Powell was the most popular. This series preceded Richard Powell's most famous series, Richard Diamond, Private Detective. Rogue trailed lovely blondes and protected witnesses in the new tough guy persona of Dick Powell. This was the transition series for Powell in his quest to be recognized as an actor rather than a singer. THIS EPISODE: June 23, 1946. NBC network. "The Star Of Savoy". Sponsored by: Fitch's Shampoo, Fitch's Hair Tonic. The first show of the series on NBC. This might be a rehearsal recording or unedited tape. A man with a bullet in him comes to Rogue's office to die. Who shot Charles McDonald...and why? The reason is a very, very valuable diamond! The system cue is not heard. The script was previously used on "Rogue's Gallery" on June 24, 1945. Dick Powell, Jim Doyle (announcer), Ray Buffum (writer), Dee Englebach (producer, director), Leith Stevens (composer, conductor), Peter Leeds. 29:46. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.
