Adventures by Morse was a syndicated adventure series produced, written and directed by Carlton
E. Morse in the mid-1940s, shortly after NBC canceled his I Love a Mystery series. In total, Morse produced 52 episodes of
Adventures by Morse, each 30 minutes long. Captain Bart Friday was a globe-trotting San Francisco-based private investigator,
portrayed during the series by Elliott Lewis, David Ellis and Russell Thorson. Friday's sidekick from Texas, Skip Turner,
was played mostly by Jack Edwards and occasionally by Barton Yarborough. The tales covered such areas as espionage, kidnapping
and murder, along with secret Nazi bases, snake worshipers and voodoo.
