Moonlite Theatre presents a radio adaptation of Agatha Christie’s detective novel The ABC Murders. Over the years there have been several adaptations of Agatha Christie’s novel for both radio and television. This one was written by Robert Tallman and William Spear in 1943 for Columbia Broadcasting Service’s weekly broadcast of its regular suspense series The Man in Black,– a series of half hour suspenseful mystery stories. In order to meet the limitation of a 30 minute broadcast, the writers dropped the character of Belgian Detective Hercule Poirot and instead featured the character of Alexander Bonaparte Cust, a mild-mannered individual whose initials were ABC and about whom revolved a series of savage murders all neatly and alphabetically arranged. ABC was stamped upon all his belongings, those being his rightful initials. And ABC was stamped too, upon the large railway timetable he always carried. But there was nothing so odd about that detail since in those days, no traveler in the British Isles would dream of planning a journey without consulting this famous railway schedule, the ABC.
