Storyline

A hosted horror and thriller movie show with Allen Harvey and later Art Hern as "Drana Badour the Swami" who presented movies on WBKB-4, Chicago, Illinois from 23 January 1950 till 24 August 1953. The strange mystic spoke in an eerie voice and wore the appropriate attire and turban. The show's macabre theme music would play as the time grew nearer for the film to begin. Captivated television viewers would then be lured into Drana Badour's crystal ball where the week's mystery or horror thriller would start. Written by Paul Gerard Kennedy
