Dangerous Assignment
Volume 5

“A modern day soldier of fortune finds mystery and intrigue in lands strange and romantic on Dangerous Assignment!”
This ad copy for NBC’s globe hopping adventure of intrigue and espionage captured the essence of Dangerous Assignment perfectly. Each week, Steve Mitchell was summoned to the office of the unnamed agency he worked for by his superior, the Commissioner. There, details of a plot that normally meant harm and death might come to the United States were revealed and Steve would be off on another action packed trip to uncover the plot, rout out the villains, and keep America safe for another week.
Dangerous Assignment is an excellent example of pulpy Post World War II action, especially with its focus on Mitchell. Played by Brian Donlevy in a two fisted, head on style, Mitchell is the sort of hero America looked for in entertainment in the 1950s. Devoutly patriotic, ready to defend the United States at the drop of a hat, and prepared to stand against any menace, mostly foreign, that might endanger the lives of honest Americans. Definitely not the only character to rise out of the paranoia and concern of Americans about Communists and other foreign threats throughout the 1950s, Steve Mitchell is wonderfully conceived in that mold and played to the hilt by Donlevy.
Dangerous Assignment, Volume 5 from Radio Archives features episodes of this classic series restored to sparkling audio quality and full of intrigue, suspense, and humor, making every episode a fun listen for any fan!
Dangerous Assignment, Volume 5 is six hours, twelve shows of great fun.

5 of 5 "Just skip it!" May 25, 2022
Reviewer: Richard McLeod from RIVERSIDE, CA United States  
Brian Donlevy is excellent starring in the role of Government Agent Steve Mitchell and uses the phrase "Just skip it" in most every episode.

The stories are quick paced, well written and with a very good musical score.  One of the better action adventure programs from the Golden age of radio.

The Radio Archives Staff are to be commended for their excellent work in the restoration of the original transcription discs back to a level of sound and tonal quality that just may be better than when the program was first broadcast.

5 of 5 Dangerous Assignment, Volume 5 January 8, 2019
Reviewer: Don Ca from Hudson, FL United States  
Donlevy, by his own admission, was not one of Hollywood's great actors.  Nonetheless, once you get into it you're hooked.
