ABOUT THIS OLD TIME RADIO SHOW:
All text on OTRCAT.com are ©2014 OTRCAT INC - All Rights Reserved. Reproduction is prohibited.

Espionage thriller drama (1952 - 54)

Dana AndrewsI was a Communist for the FBIBased on the book by real-life undercover agent, Matt Cvetic, I Was a Communist for the FBI was a dramatization of Cvetics life during the time he infiltrated the Communist Party of the United States of America (CPUSA). In real life, Cvetic lost everything he loved--his wife, children, parents, friends--except for his country and love for that country is what kept him going.

I Was A Communist for the FBIThe old time radio show stars Dana Andrews in the lead role and paints a picture of a man constantly under stress, constantly tested in his loyalty and devotion to the party. While the radio drama was just that, a drama, the stories of Cvetic constantly walking a fine line between discovery by the Communists and doing his job as best he could to gather information and throw up road blocks to their activity in the United States.

Cvetic lived in constant fear for nine years from 1941 to 1950 while he was a party member knowing that if he was discovered, he would pay with his life. His recruitment by the FBI was something out of a spy movie. After failing to gain entry into the US Army in 1941 because he was too short, he received a mysterious phone call. He met his handler exactly once and never met him again though submitted over 50,000 pages of reports.
