Alan Ladd on the microphone.
All-time favorite Mystery-adventure
(1948-49)

"Adventure wanted--
will go anywhere--
do anything--
Box 13.
"

Alan Ladd publicity still.Box 13Alan Ladd plays Dan Holiday, retired newspaper man turned fiction writer and adventurer extraordinaire. To gain ideas for his books, he places an ad in the paper "Adventure wanted – will go anywhere, do anything – Box 13."

Needless to say, Box 13 becomes jammed with adventures galore, from psycho killer letters to birds carrying secret messages beneath their wings. Mr. Holiday always had more adventure than he had originally sought, because those who responded to his ad never revealed all of their glorious, unusual, and sometimes creepy details until they met in person and the adventure had already begun.

Suzy (played by Silvia Picker), Holiday's scattery secretary, adds touches of humor to this mystery-adventure seat-clinching program.Box 13 was produced by Mayfair Productions, a company run by Alan Ladd and Richard Sandville. The name came from Mayfair Restaurant, which Alan and Richard owned during WWII. Mayfair Productions also produced the hair-raising show, The Unexpected. In addition to producing Box 13, Alan Ladd also wrote most of the Box 13 shows.
