True Stories of Real Crime!
Every thrilling episode of Gang Busters (based on the highly-acclaimed radio program by Phillips H. Lord) features a dramatization of a local, state or federal law-enment case from across the country. Each show is gritty in its realistic depiction of crime and ends with a bulletin for a wanted person of the era. This ground-breaking series is an early predecessor to America's Most Wanted.
