Old radio, blasting Leonidas WitherallWalter Hampden, "a great and versatile actor," stars as Leonidas Wintherall, a brainy sleuth that can sniff out any murderer in record time. A dead-ringer for William Shakespeare (some like to call Mr. Wintherall "Bill"), Leonidas leads a double-life as the proprietor of a school for boys in a New England town and author of Ltn. Hazeltime thriller stories. Walter HampdenLike his character Ltn. Hazeltime, Leonidas often finds himself in "strange, unexpected situations" involving murder. The story usually begins with just that, a murder, and Leonidas will make an announcement like, "There'll be no tea this afternoon. There has been a murder!" while all the ladies scatter from the building to leave him sleuthing.
