The Bail Bond Caper (Aired June 27, 1948)
His characterization has influenced film noir ever since. Spade was played by Ricardo Cortez in the pre-Code first film version (1931). Despite being a critical and commercial success, an attempt to re-release the film in 1936 was denied approval by the Production Code Office due to the film's "lewd" content. Since Warner Bros. could not re-release the film, a second version was made. In Satan Met a Lady (1936), a light comedy, the central character was renamed Ted Shane and was played by Warren William. The film was a notable flop. On the radio, Sam Spade was played by Bogart in a 1943 Screen Guild Theater production and a 1946 Academy Award Theater production. He was also played by Edward G. Robinson in a 1943 Lux Radio Theater production. THIS EPISODE: June 27, 1948. CBS network. "The Bail-Bond Caper". Sponsored by: Wildroot Cream-Oil.
