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!

I greatly appreciate your audio editing efforts to create virtually noise free programs in all your old time radio programs.  While some listeners are oblivious to the noise, I greatly appreciate and applaud your efforts.  Thank you.

5 of 5 Dangerous Assignment, Volume 4 October 10, 2018
Reviewer: Donald C from Hudson, FL United States  
Really nice sound. A couple had some slight distortions but generally very good!  Written description shows these as 30 minute programs. They aren't. During this part of1952 the shows had a run time of 25 minutes.  These time out nicely at around 24 minutes. The one exception with the 52/11/18 show - Munich. It is dated incorrectly. It is actually 1950-11-18.

Also mis-dated  1952-12-24 New Guinea is actually 1953-01-07 New Guinea   AND

1952-12-31 London should be 1953-01-14 London
