The radio show Crime Does Not Pay is a perfect example of how radio shows often mirrored major studio productions. This radio show was based on the film series Crime Does Not Pay produced by Metro Goldwyn Mayer. The films began in 1935 yet weren’t mirrored by the radio show until 14 years later. During the same general time period, a comic book by the same name was popular with readers. During the late 40s and early 50s crime dramas were very popular – much like they are today.
