The Flowers That Smelled Of Murder (Aired November 1, 1948)
Let George Do It was a radio drama series produced by Owen and Pauline Vinson from 1946 to 1954. It starred Bob Bailey as detective-for-hire George Valentine (with Olan Soule stepping into the role in 1954). Clients came to Valentine's office after reading a newspaper carrying his classified ad: "Personal notice: Danger's my stock in trade. If the job's too tough for you to handle, you've got a job for me. George Valentine. "The few earliest episodes were more sitcom than private eye shows, with a studio audience providing scattered laughter at the not-so-funny scripts. Soon the audience was banished, and George went from stumbling comedic hero to tough guy private eye, while the music became suspenseful.
November 1, 1948. Mutual-Don Lee network. "The Flowers That Smelled Of Murder". Sponsored by: Standard Oil, Chevron. A co-ed suspects that her professor of botany is about to be murdered. Having Jeff Chandler play a naive a bashful biology teacher talking with George Valentine's pretty assistant (whose name is Miss Brooks!) is such a coincidence that there must be some connection with the CBS comedy series "Our Miss Brooks," which went on the air only three and a half months previously. Bob Bailey, Frances Robinson, Wally Maher, Lurene Tuttle, Jeff Chandler, Tommy Cook, Theodore Von Eltz, Fay Baker, Herbert Rawlinson, Don Clark (director), Bud Hiestand (announcer), Eddie Dunstedter (composer, conductor), David Victor (writer), Herbert Little Jr. (writer). 29:50.
