Trivia

The original radio show began portraying Japanese and German characters as villains after Pearl Harbor. The producer, Edward Byron, observed "If radio characters don't get into war work soon, listeners will demand to know why they haven't joined the marines". See more »

Mr. District Attorney...Champion of the People
21 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved the way the show began each week in front of that singular Los Angeles County Courthouse. The show's announcer would start off with this anthem: "Mr. District Attorney...Champion of the People...Defender of Truth...Guardian of our fundamental right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." Then the district attorney would respond: "And it shall be my duty as district attorney not only to prosecute to the limit of the law all persons accused of crimes perpetrated within this county, but to defend with equal vigor the rights and privileges of all its citizens."

This was another of the entertaining half-hour melodramas of the 1950's, such as Racket Squad, The Big Story, Harbor Command, Boston Blackie, etc. David Bryan, tall and blondish-gray, made an impressive D.A. who lived up to his creed.
