Background

Countless volumes of prose, praise, nostalgic musing and sardonic observations have been written over New York City's Theatre District and Broadway's famous--and equally infamous--"Great White Way." Midtown Manhattan's Great White Way encompasses New York's Theatre District, anchored by Broadway between 42nd and 53rd Streets.

The New York Edison Company first illuminated just over a mile of Broadway in 1880. Employing brush-arc lamps, Broadway became the first electrically lighted section of city streets in the United States. It was the New York Evening Telegram that first annointed the area with it's February 3rd 1902 headline, "Found on the Great White Way." Throughout the next century and beyond, scriveners around the world made 'The Great White Way' synonymous with Broadway's Theatre District.

Thirty-something journalist and documentarian Peter Lyon [born Robert Crawford Lyon], himself a denizen of the Theatre District, had written about The Great White Way for over a decade by the time he'd considered penning radio scripts--let alone for a series based upon Crime in the Theatre District.

The romance, adventure, high drama and crime that surrounded Broadway were fertile soil indeed for many of the popular writers, novelists and newspapermen of the era. Damon Runyon is still fondly remembered for his vivid depictions of the eccentric 'guys and dolls' of Broadway. Many of the detective fiction writers of the era found great promise in the often cruel eccentricities surrounding Broadway and its denizens. And who can forget the colorful Nero Wolfe as penned by Rex Stout. And of course we had Leslie Charteris and The Saint . . . and we'd have to include S.S. Van Dine's brilliant Philo Vance; and Nick and Nora Charles from the pen of Dashiell Hammett. But of course the list goes on and on. Nor did it come as a surprise to anyone of the era that these and many other 'gentleman detectives,' 'Mr. and Mrs. detectives,' and other brilliant private--and public--sleuths found their way into the popular culture of The Golden Age of Radio era.

Radio sleuths of all stripes and from all regions of both the U.S. and beyond found a home in American Radio of the 1920s to 1960s. They were naturals for radio. Their popularity--as well as the success of the networks and sponsors who brought them to the air--was amply rewarded by adoring audiences.

Gritty Crime programming also found its way into popular culture from the mid-1940s on. And as the crime dramas got grittier, Radio and Television networks were forced to even further differentiate their fare for the era's increasingly critical audiences. Dragnet and Line-Up, for example, brought yet another level of realism and grit to Radio's crime dramas. As the 1950s approached, Radio networks found themselves scrambling for ever more unique crime, detective and mystery programming.

Casey Crime Photographer in its various permutations over the years spawned Night Beat. Night Beat upped the 'prose' ante even further, offering a new generation of 'adult crime drama' full of far more sensitive themes, plots and more contemporary crime situations and human-interest stories.

CBS brings Broadway Is My Beat to Radio

Against that historical backdrop, on February 27th 1949, CBS launched its Broadway Is My Beat series--sustained--over the entire CBS Network. Given the 5:30 p.m., Sunday timeslot formerly occupied by its Strike It Rich radio-giveaway program, CBS equipped the new series with some of the finest talent in its New York stable. Peter Lyon wrote the scripts, John Dietz both produced and directed the new series, and veteran Stage and Film actor Anthony Ross got the title role of Detective Lieutenant Danny Clover, the head of the mythical 'Broadway Special Detail' of Midtown Manahattan's Detective Division.

From the June 1949 issue of Radio's Best magazine:

Veteran Stage actor Anthony Ross shares the CBS mike with handsome young John Forsythe during a New York broadcast of Broadway Is My Beat
Veteran Stage actor Anthony Ross shares the CBS mike with handsome young John Forsythe during a New York broadcast of Broadway Is My Beat.

THIS ONE catalogues itself most easily as a whodunit.  But it's both more and less than that.  The gore doesn't quite spill over, and the mysterious tangles are not complicated; these are the facts that may reduce the program's battling average when judged strictly in the whodunit league.  But it is more than that, too, because of its swift, glib, super-sophisticated tone.
     The principal character here is a detective who covers New York's main stem, in the Times Square area.  His lingo is the talk of Lindy's and Toots Shor's and the gossip columnists.  He is familiar with every Broadway spot and personality.  And that familiarity helps the flatfoot get his man, every time.
     It's not unpleasant listening for those who care for that kind of fare on a Sabbath afternoon.  The writer is Peter Lyon, one of the best documentary men in the scripting business.  If you wonder why a documentarist should be writing this kind of stuff--maybe it's only because even good writers must eat.  Anyway, he does a good job, and seems to take it seriously.  I do, too, in a different way.  I'd rather see CBS employing a man like Lyon the way he should be used.  But this is a review of a specific show, not an editorial.  So here's a plus mark for "Broadway's My Beat."


Writer Peter Lyon's florid narratives uttered by Detective Lieutenant Danny Glover often bordered on poetry. Reminiscent of Alonzo Deen Cole and his Casey Crime Photographer scripts, the trend of prosaic, lyrical metaphor also found its way into radio's Night Beat series of 1950-1952. Given that all three series overlapped for several years, avid crime and detective drama listeners of the era found themselves immersed in quasi-prose throughout the first half of 1950s. These protagonists' lyrical observations about the underbelly of their respective milieux were in stark contrast to Dragnet and The Line-Up and their far grittier crime narratives of the era.

The detective as narrator found its way into Radio with the popularity of film noir of the 1940s and 1950s. So much so that throughout the late 1940s and most of the 1950s, the more 'adult' western, crime and detective dramas over radio often featured similar narratives by their protagonists. Indeed many of these same radio programs found their way to popular Television as well--a trend that continued well into the 1960s.

Broadway Is My Beat was produced, recorded and broadcast out of New York for its first season. When CBS moved the production to its CBS-KNX studios in Hollywood for its second season and beyond, it left most of its production team behind:

  • Announcer/actor Larry Thor replaced Anthony Ross as Danny Clover
  • Gordon T. Hughes replaced John Dietz as producer-director
  • Lud Gluskin replaced Robert Stringer as composer-conductor
  • Morton Fine and David Friedkin replaced Peter Lyon as writers

To the production's great credit, the format and style of Broadway Is My Beat remained essentially untouched with its move to the West Coast. Indeed, Morton Fine and David Friedkin, arguably one the finest scenarist teams in Radio and Television history, continued Peter Lyon's effusive and poetic observations about life and crime in Manhattan's Theatre District. Whether out of an homage to Peter Lyon or simply rising to the challenge of a unique narrative style, Fine and Friedkin provided a seamless transtion between the New York and Hollywood productions of Broadway Is My Beat.

This was, after all, what made Broadway Is My Beat such a successful, predominately sustaining, production for almost five years and over two hundred episodes. As one season followed the other, punctuated by a few Summer fill-ins and stops and starts, Fine and Friedkin's scripts became both more lyrical and more convoluted; pleasingly so for detective and crime genre radio fans of the era. Indeed, by the series' third full season, Broadway Is My Beat had become one of the more compelling and challenging crime dramas of 1951-1952; this in a wide field of competing detective, crime and mystery dramas. 1952's Who's Who in Radio and Television published 'snapshots' of the 1951-1952 crime fare in under it's "Eyes and Molls" feature:

While not entirely comprehensive, the magazine's list was fairly representative of Broadway Is My Beat and it's early 1950s competition. Other competition was The Man Called X, Casey Crime Photographer, Charlie Wild Private Eye, Mister Moto, and Dangerous Assignment, among several others. It's also worth noting that though many of Broadway Is My Beat's competition starred some of Film's greatest stars, Larry Thor and his ensemble of West Coast Radio's finest voice talent remained competitive in spite of the absence of 'big name stars.'

It goes without saying that the credit for Broadway Is My Beat's success was shared equally by Fine and Friedkin, director Elliott Lewis, lead actor Larry Thor and his fine fellow actors, brilliantly scored by Alexander Courage and some of West Coast Radio's finest sound technicians.

The denizens of both Broadway and Manhattan's 16th Precinct provided no end of compelling fodder for Broadway Is My Beat. And apparently Manhattan's 16th Precinct continues to serve in that capacity to this day. For it's Manhattan's 16th Precinct that has served for fourteen seasons as the setting for NBC's popular Law and Order: Special Victims Unit television series of today.

OTRisms:

We understand that there endures a great deal of hand-wringing and effusive debate over the actual series name of this canon. Is it "Broadway Is My Beat" or is it "Broadway's My Beat"? And while it continues to bewilder us that 'OTR World' would continue this gnashing of teeth over the canon's title, we'd simply offer the following:

  • All of the official, original transcription labeling for this canon employs the title, "Broadway Is My Beat"--both the CBS-KNX labeling and the Armed Forces Radio & Television Service labeling.
  • From the very first CBS teasers of the canon to The Billboard and other trade publications, the CBS Network employed "Broadway Is My Beat" as the proposed--and ultimate--series name of the canon.
  • CBS cross-promotional announcements in other CBS canons of the era promoted the series as "Broadway Is My Beat."
  • CBS' own press releases regarding the canon referred to the series as "Broadway Is My Beat."
  • The Lux Hour of Romance and Mystery run of the series referred to its 'mystery portion' of the hour as "Broadway Is My Beat."

Now call us pedantic, but if CBS Network, CBS-KNX Radio, Radio Recorders of Hollywood, The Billboard, Broadcasting Magazine and the Armed Forces Radio and Television Service ALL deemed the series' name to be "Broadway Is My Beat," then who are we to doubt the originators' intent?

Here's a perhaps irreverant--but heartfelt--suggestion for 'OTR World': Would it not make far more sense to spend at least as much time ACTUALLY LISTENING TO MORE THAN THREE MINUTES OF THE CANON to get title names, performers, synopses, character names and AFRTS versus CBS Network renditions correctly identified, as on arguing about this canon's title? Is that too extreme? Have we--yet again--overstepped our bounds?

The titles in current circulation for Broadway Is My Beat are almost entirely apocryphal. There were less than a handful of announced titles for the series. And as we've come to observe over the past five years of documenting over 560 radio canons of the era, a great number of the circulating apocryphal titles
range between wildly inaccurate and simply inattentive. Most of these titles--erroneous or otherwise--have been in circulation for as long as 40 years. In the case of scripts by Morton Fine and David Friedkin, the traditional 'OTR' malpractice of simply listening to the first two to five minutes of a broadcast to assign it an apocryphal title does both great script writers a great disservice. But such is the continuing state of 'OTR World.' In 'OTR World' one simply can't make book, podcast, cassette or CD money fast enough by bothering with trivialities like actually listening to what one claims 'vast expertise' in. Far better to just keep cheating, making it up as you go and throwing historical accuracy out the window. "Ka-Ching, Ka-Ching, Ka-Ching." That's what matters. And so it goes . . .

'OTR' being 'OTR,' virtually none of the circulating AFRTS or AFRTS-FEN Rebroadcast exemplars are accurately--or honestly--credited. Indeed, many dealers and groups have gone to great lengths to adulterate circulating AFRTS exemplars to give them the appearance of commercial broadcasts. We've corrected this long-standing malpractice and oversight further below. As it turns out, well over a third of the circulating exemplars are from AFRTS transcriptions.

From the October 28th edition of the Lowell Sun:

Anthony Ross, Actor, Dead at 46;
Portrayed Professor in Bus Stop

Broadway Performer Since ’32
Had Role in ‘Country Girl’
Film and Many TV Dramas

Anthony Ross, stage actor, died Tuesday night in his sleep at his home, 506 East Eighty-ninth Street, apparently of a coronary thrombosis, a few hours after playing his featured role, in “Bus Stop" at the Music Box Theatre. His age was 46.

Long recognized as a competent craftsman, Mr. Ross was often considered an impressive actor by critics who had followed his adventures through more than thirty plays as well as a number of Hollywood films and television dramas.

When the comedy “Bus Stop" opened last March, Brooks Atkinson wrote in The New York Times:
"In the part of the tipsy professor, Anthony Ross gives his richest performance-—sardonically witty, pathetically self-critical, always fluent in the stream of expression." A few days later Mr. Atkinson observed further. "There is a mad brilliance about his conversation. He is learned, cultivated, and damned. In Anthony Ross’ skillful acting he [the boozy professor] is funny and pathetic, at the same time--the grand manner tempered with self-deprecating irony."

Other successes enjoyed by Mr. Ross were "Arsenic and Old Lace," 1941; "Winged Vict0ry," 1943; "The Glass Menagerie," 1945, and "Season in the Sun," 1950. Mr. Ross played the part of the heartless producer in “The Country Girl," probably his outstanding film role.

He made his debut on Broadway in 1932, appearing in “Whistling in the Dark." Thereafter he persevered- through seven years of variable fortune, mostly bad. But in 1940, Mr. Ross appeared wlth Maurice Evans in "King Richard 11" and “Twelfth Night." During World War II he left the theatre for military intelligence work, save for a hitch on tour with "This Is the Army."

Ten years ago luck really ran his way. He walked right out of the Army into a featured role--that of The Gentleman Caller in “The Glass Menagerie." In 1946, he married the former assistant stage manager of that production, Mary Jean Copeland.

Mr. Ross was born in New York. He graduated from Brown University and studied at the Sorbonne in Paris and the University of Nancy, France. An
accomplished linguist, he played the piano and, in his earlier days, was devoted to long canoe trips and cross-country hitch-hiking expeditions.

Members of the cast of "Bus Stop" and others associated with him reported that Mr. Ross had seemed to be in good health Tuesday night.

Surviving are his widow and a son, Stephen. Mr. Ross, who changed his name legally, was son of Charles M. Rosenthal and the late Mrs. Cora S. Rosenthal.
