Cloak and Dagger was an NBC radio series, a foreign intrigue adventure adapted from the book Cloak and Dagger by Corey Ford.[1]

A syndicated transcription package produced by the Louis G. Cowan agency, Cloak and Dagger was broadcast from May 7 to October 22, 1950, with a cast that included Raymond Edward Johnson, Everett Sloane and Jackson Beck.[2] Scriptwriter Wyllis Cooper directed the series with research support provided by Percy Hoskins, British journalist, crime reporter and author.


Stories on Cloak and Dagger "came right out of Washington files" of the Office of Strategic Services.[1] A 1950 newspaper article commented, "The stories dramatized each week are true, and yet as fantastic as any fiction writer might be able to dream up."[1]
