Box 13 premiered in 1947 and was about the escapades of newspaperman-turned-mystery novelist Dan Holliday, played by film star Alan Ladd. To seek out new ideas for his fiction, Holliday ran a classified ad in the Star-Times newspaper where he formerly worked: "Adventure wanted, will go anywhere, do anything -- write Box 13, Star-Times." The stories followed Holliday's adventures when he responded to the letters sent to him by such people as a psycho killer and various victims.
