"Wherever there's mystery, intrigue, romance…in all the strange and dangerous places of the world…there you will find The Man Called X."
Wherever he goes, action follows! Suave, debonair secret agent Ken Thurston travels the world, dispatched anywhere America's interests might be threatened. This exciting espionage series was created by the enigmatic real-life intelligence operative Jay Richard Kennedy.
In his signature role, Herbert Marshall stars as Thurston, with former bandleader Leon Belasco as sidekick Pagan Zeldtschimdt. Veteran director Jack Johnstone gives the series his usual slick polish, and scripts by some of radio's top adventure writers give these exotic stories vigor and snap.
