For a murder-mystery set in a radio studio, the film certainly had its share of personalities who themselves were radio actors. Bud Abbott
and Lou Costello
had been introduced to the nation on "The Kate Smith Hour", and (at the time this film), had their own highly successful radio show. William Bendix
(Detective Brannigan) was a bit player in radio at the time, but was to soon become famous for his radio show "The Life of Riley". Walter Tetley
(the busboy) was an accomplished child radio actor, playing various roles on different shows including "The Great Gildersleeve" and "The Phil Harris/Alice Faye Show". Finally, William Gargan
(Detective Moran) starred in his own radio show, "Barry Craig, Confidential Investigator". See more
