It was cancelled on October 15, 1956. Phillips H. Lord (1902-1975) was an American entertainer who is best known as the radio broadcaster of Gang Busters (1935-1957). Initially titled G-Men, the radio show dramatized closed FBI criminal cases and was the inspiration for the phrase “came on like Gang Busters”, referring to the program's introduction sequence which included loud noises like a police officer's whistle and gunfire. Gang Busters later became a recurring televised series in the 1940s and 1950s. Lord also appeared on the big screen himself in Way Back Home (1931) and Obeah (1935). His other radio work includes Mr. District Attorney (1939-1952), which was also turned into a television series. Tape stain along left edge. Folding creases. Three pinholes through signature (still legible). Quarter-inch tear in top right corner.
