Episode 7, I Was A Communist For The FBI


Leading man Dana Andrews stars in the syndicated series that chronicles the stylized adventures of FBI undercover man Matt Cvetic. Cvetic worked for the FBI as a Communist Party mole in the 40s, before being fired for erratic behavior. He sold his story to¬†The Saturday Evening Post, and then to Hollywood. Radio actor Frank Lovejoy starred in the film version, which became a cult classic. Taking advantage of the red hysteria of the early 50s, the IWACFTF radio series debuted in 1952 with Andrews as star. Seventy eight episodes were produced between ’52 and ’54.
