Craig Rice’s crafty criminal lawyer John J. Malone, a wisecracking counsellor at law, sprang from the pages of mystery novels to radio in The Amazing Mr. Malone. Malone takes tough cases in Chicago, where he does his own leg work to clear his wrongfully accused clients. He’s more of a Paul Drake than a Perry Mason in the way he tackles his cases. We’ll hear George Petrie star as Malone in “Hard Work Never Killed Anyone,” originally aired on NBC on June 1, 1951.
