Bob Bailey on screen

3 actors who played radio detectivesOutside of radio, Bob Bailey of Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar fame did appear in movies occasionally. A somewhat obscure film from 1944 called The Eve of St. Mark in which Bailey portrays Cpl. Tate. He can be seen in this video clip which I’ve joined together with another from earlier in the film. His voice is distinctive and you should recognize him.

I am also including a still shot from the same film in which actors who portrayed radio detectives also appeared in the film. Can you find them? In the foreground right is Harry Morgan who was on Dragnet, to his right is Bailey who was Johnny Dollar, and in the rear slightly left of center is Vincent Price, who was the Saint.

Click below to view the film clip. Bailey is the poker player on the left and later the guy shouting orders.
