The 1950s in America was a period of both prosperity and paranoia, of families and fear. Even though victorious in World War II, American society still saw criminals in every shadow, villains around the corner, all laying in wait to disrupt the American way of life. Movies, television, books, and entertainment of all sorts capitalized on this anxiety, turning out tales of foreign infiltrators, nefarious plots to overthrow America, and the broad shouldered barrel chested heroes who stood up for the United States. Radio was no different and one of the best examples of this type of program was Dangerous Assignment. Debuting in 1950 on NBC, Dangerous Assignment featured tough guy actor Brian Donlevy as Steve Mitchell, a troubleshooting agent of some sort, no real title or number is identified, for an unnamed agency established to protect the country and prevent unrest and turmoil from abroad. Given orders each week by The Commissioner, Mitchell embarked on globe hopping adventures in each episode, usually posing as a foreign correspondent working a lead on some possible threat to America or even the entire world. Wading into the fray in stereotypical United States tough guy hard boiled style, Mitchell would uncover the plot, deal with the villains, and leave the world safe once again for democracy, all within thirty minutes.
