Re: Casebook of Gregory Hood - actor identification

Gregory Hood is definitely Jackson Beck in this episode.

I know the voice of Taylor but do not recall his name.

Elliott Lewis had already come and gone as Gregory Hood in Hollywood.

The episode you speak about was done from New York.

Subject: [OldTimeRadioResearchers] Casebook of Gregory Hood - actor identification


Can anyone help identify the actors playing Gregory Hood and Sandy Taylor in the initial ABC episode? The information I have indicates that it should be Elliott Lewis (articles from then mention Jackson Beck replacing him three episodes after that, but that doesn't mean that's when it actually happened), but I have my doubts - and the cast credits aren't listed at the end. I have no information on who Sandy Taylor would be. Howard McNear was through at least June 1949, but even I can tell that's not him. :) 

Here's a link to the episode, "The Carnival of Death", from 10/15/1949:
