Wherever there's a scheme afoot, radio's fabulous freelance insurance investigator is on the job to stop it! Bob Bailey stars as Johnny Dollar, picking up the ringing telephone to take on cases of double indemnity and double cross, foul weather and foul play.
Bailey is the definitive Dollar - the character's wry sense of humor fits the actor like a tailor-made suit. He's a man of keen analytical skills and good nature, a man who can use his fists in a tight spot without being an obnoxious "tough guy."

Definitive Johnny Dollar. Well written, superbly acted
I love the series, Johnny Dollar. It is one of my favorites! And Bob Bailey is the best person to ever play Dollar. He was very talented. I fell in love with him!
