Rex Saunders has the classic sidekick Alex (played by Leon Janney) who is along for the action and to ask questions. Alex is a traveling companion and partner in crime...solving, that is. The weekly stories of "intrigue and adventure" are classic tales of thugs and questionable strangers, with Saunder's alert eyes and mind seeing ahead of the perfunctory Alex. These two are civilized and sophisticated, like The Saint.

Direction is done throughout by the veteran Himan Brown, best know for his work on Suspense. Edward Adamson stuck to basic stuff in writing these stories, but the characterizations are solid and enjoyable. Amzie Strickland, Barbara Weeks and Jean Ellen are several of the actors featured, and the great Jackson Beck (Cisco Kid, Hop Harrigan, Tom Corbett) is in on some.

More of this type of classic detective adventure? Bold Venture, The Saint, Dangerous Assignment and Boston Blackie are star vehicles like The Private Files of Rex Saunders. The best two (say many) are The Adventures of Philip Marlowe, and Sam Spade . But there are many more...
