"The Ruby of Karaval" (November 21, 1937)

The Ruby of Caraval
Hello Pulp Friends,

After the Black Beetle parenthesis (no worries, BB will be back with way more), we go back to the classic Old Time Radio show as promised. And we go back to the Shadow! :)

In this week's episode, titled "The Ruby of Karaval", we deal with a ruby that carries a 500 year old curse.

The ruby was stolen centuries ago from the gates of Karaval and ends up in modern times (well, the '30s) in the mansion of Hugo Savar, actor and collector. A notorious crook (Moonlight Joe, gotta love those names) forces a make-up artist to change Joe's face into Hugo's and sneaks in Hugo's house to steal the ruby. But things get complicated when Lamont and Margo show up in the same house and people start to die. Is it the curse of the ruby or something else?

Enjoy the show and have a great (pulp) Sunday!
