Inner Sanctum Mystery – Hunter From Beyond

What if you wanted to get your man at all costs.  Even if it means waiting 100,000 years?  Tonight’s Inner Sanctum Mystery comes from September 7th, 1941.  It is titled “Hunter From Beyond”.  Unfortunately, I don’t want to pull your chain here, a lot of these recordings are lost forever into the void of space.  Others we only have fleeting glimpses of.  This particular episode would have been fantastic to hear.  Unfortunately, like archaeologists we have to share in the frustration of mystery.  Only about 5 minutes of this episode are known to exist and we have it here.  To me, it’s a privilege to even be able to listen to these great historic recordings and gives me great pleasure in knowing that we saved as much as we could from our very important cultural history.

Inner Sanctum Mystery, also known as Inner Sanctum, a popular old-time radio program that aired from January 7, 1941, to October 5, 1952, was created by producer Himan Brown and was based on the imprint given to the mystery novels of Simon & Schuster.

A total of 527 episodes were produced, but a majority are presumed to be lost. Less than 200 are known to exist today. A number of the episodes that exist are edited versions that were rebroadcast on Armed Forces Radio Service (AFRS) as part of Mystery Playhouse hosted by Peter Lorre. These episodes edited out the commercials as well as the original introductions and postscripts by Raymond Johnson. They were replaced with an introduction by Peter Lorre.

Play Time:  About 5 Minutes.
