Nightbeat

This is one of our favorite shows
not only because the episodes are
well written and superbly acted, but
also 'cause they provide a positive
view of the fourth estate, something
that is hard to find in this day and age.

While not fitting the normal definition
of a hard-boiled detective, newspaper
reporter Randy Stone explores the darker
side of the big city by night looking
for humanity in all the wrong places.

Lovejoy, who played tough guys in most
of his films, has just the right level
caring and callousness to pull of this
challenging role.

Series Description:

NIGHTBEAT was a 1950 NBC adventure series in which Frank Lovejoy
played the part of Randy Stone, top reporter for "The Chicago Star"
newspaper.  Randy's Nightbeat assignment sent him to the streets of
Chicago looking for human interest stories and any chance of exposing
criminals.  Randy's ability to "get involved" created a half-hour of
intriguing drama always closing with Stone's crisp call, "Copy boy!".

NIGHTBEAT was produced and directed by Warren Lewis.  Supporting
roles were portrayed by Lorain Tuttle, Joan Banks, Herb Butterfield
and Peter Leeds.  The series was unsponsored, except for brief times
by Wheaties and Pabst.

As mentioned in Mr. Dunning's "On The Air", (see "References"),
NIGHTBEAT was "a superior series that focused as much on people as
predicament".  The stories were varied, covering crimes and human
interest, but were always dramatic.  Quality radio, not to be missed.


Log Comments:

The log shows 2 auditions, 2 series, 5 special shows and shows for
which the broadcast dates are not known.  Four of the special shows
were re-broadcasts of shows on different days, possible to develop
interest in the new series.  These shows are identified with "Sn"
(n = number) in the "Num" column.  Jay Hickerson's "Ultimate Guide"
(see "References") indicates there were 111 shows, while Jerry
Haendiges's log says 112.  This may be due to counting the special
of 03-04-51.  I count this one as "S5", the fifth special and list
111 possible series shows.

Many catalogs had differing titles.  The most common is used first.
Others are listed below the main title, preceded by "Alt:".
