Editorial Reviews

Public Prosecutor was a ground breaking television series -- the first series ever to be filmed as opposed to broadcast live. Twenty-six 20 minute episodes were shot in 1947-48 but were pulled from NBC's schedule when the fledgling network opted for half-hour series instead. It starred suave, dapper John Howard as Prosecutor Stephen Allen and gorgeous Anne Gwynne as his secretary.

Actor John Howard is probably best remembered as the titular character in the popular Bulldog Drummond series of films, first playing the role in 1937's Bulldog Drummond Returns. That same year he appeared in the towering Frank Capra classic Lost Horizon as Ronald Colman's brother who desperately wants to leave Shangri-La. He had an important role in another 1940 classic, The Philadelphia Story playing Katherine Hepburn's fiance George Kittredge. Gorgeous Anne Gwynne ran screaming from Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi and Lon Chaney, Jr. during her busy career. She is best remembered for her roles in Flash Gordon Conquers The Universe (1940), The Black Cat (1941), Dick Tracy Meets Gruesome (1947) and House Of Frankenstein (1944).

THE CASE THE DEAD MAN'S VOICE: A murdered mystery writer leaves a tape recording in which he taunts the police from beyond the grave, challenging them to uncover the identity of his killer.

THE CASE OF THE SHATTERED MIRROR: The spray of bullets that missed their mark is the only clue Prosecutor Allen has to work with, as he investigates the murder of a songwriter.

THE CASE OF THE THOUSAND TERRORS: Allen is skeptical when an heiress claims that someone is out to kill her and believes the woman is omitting important information.

THE CASE OF THE INNOCENT LION: A lion tamer appears to have been mauled to death, but Allen discovers a six-inch stab wound in the man's back.

A little on the corny side, but watchable. It's like a whodunit and that is very interesting. I'm not to crazy about the actor talking to the camera.
