Adventure wanted: will go anywhere, do anything- Box 13

Dan Holiday, newspaper reporter turned fiction writer, puts an ad in his old paper in search of story ideas.  His ad states he's looking for
adventure.  The reply come to the newspaper's Box 13 and always brings trouble for Dan Holiday. Box 13 was a syndicated series, heard
Sunday evenings on the Mutual network.  Alan Ladd played the part of Dan Holiday, Sylvia Picker played Suzzy and Edmund MacDonald
plays police lieutenant King. There were many writers who co-wrote Box 13, but Ladd was the main writer. Box 13 was the product of
Alan Ladd and Richard Sandpile, two owners of the famous Mayfair Restaurant in Los Angeles during World War II. Mr. Lad's ambition
to get on radio in his own series was thwarted in part because he was under contract to Paramount. Paramount did not allow him to
appear on radio, except occasionally for guest shots such as Lucky Jordan on the Screen Guild Program. At the end of the war, Ladd and
Sandpile sold the Mayfair Restaurant and formed Mayfair Productions.  The two mainstay shows of Mayfair were Box 13 and
The Unexpected starring Hollywood stars such as Lorene Tattle and Marsha Hunt. Sandpile and Ladd parted company but shows like The
Unexpected, Box 13, and The Damon Runyon Theatre remain as May fare's legacy.
