The Big Hand

There are surprisingly many radio series which have passed into total obscurity -- no recordings; no fans; no information about them aside from program listings in the newspaper. The Big Hand is one such series. The Workshop acquired a handful of original scripts from this 1951 ABC series which seems to have escaped general notice. It's a thriller in the mold of "Escape" -- yarns about men that might have appeared in the pages of the show's sponsor, Saga Magazine. Solid enough for the 37 episodes which the series apparently lasted, but soon forgotten.
