Dangerous Assignment
Volume 4

"Yeah, danger is my assignment. I get sent to a lot of places I can’t even pronounce. They all spell the same thing, though - trouble."
In this opening line heard on various episodes, Steve Mitchell, special agent for an unnamed agency charged with protecting America from foreign threats, describes Dangerous Assignment perfectly. Focused on Mitchell's adventures around the world, Dangerous Assignment capitalized on the desire of Americans at the time for patriotic, stalwart heroes to stand up for them. Mitchell, as portrayed by Brian Donlevy definitely fits that bill.

A multitalented actor, Donlevy had a thirst in his own life for adventure and patriotism. At age 14, Donlevy lied about his age and joined the local Army National Guard in Wisconsin as they became a part of the expedition to capture Pancho Villa. Serving as a bugler then, he also later enlisted and fought in World War I in France.

Although he had some initial success in theater and silent films, Donlevy came to prominence as a player of tough guys and villains. Such roles in Barbary Coast, Destry Rides Again, and Beau Geste, assured Donlevy a career in Hollywood and led to other fantastic roles, including that of Steve Mitchell in Dangerous Assignment.
Brian Donlevy shines as Steve Mitchell in Dangerous Assignment, Volume 4. Hard boiled delivery and two fisted intensity make Mitchell a fun hero to follow and fight beside! Restored to sparkling audio quality, the episodes in this collection are a great example of 1950s radio adventure!

5 of 5 Film Noir of Radio............ November 23, 2017
Reviewer: Richard McLeod from RIVERSIDE, CA United States  
Brian Donlevy was as successful on radio as he has been earlier in motion pictures.  A recipient of an Academy Award Nomination for his performance in Beau Geste and well known to the motion picture audiences of the Golden Age of Hollywood, Brian Donlevy was well respected in the film industry and such respect continued into his radio work.  Each episode of "Dangerous Assignment" is well written and the delivery is perfect for each actor.  The stories are action packed with international political intrigue. If there is a film noir quality in radio as in film, "Dangerous Assignment" falls into such a category.

The Radio Archives staff has restored each of these radio programs back to their original sound and tonal quality.  I have never heard vintage radio programs restored to a higher quality than what is restored by this special group of people dedicated to the preservation of early and vintage radio.
