British actor Ben Wright's natural voice made him a perfect fit for characters like Sherlock Holmes and Scotland Yard men, but his affinity for accents and dialects allowed him to play all sorts of parts - sometimes even multiple characters in the same radio episode. We'll hear him as a wounded man on the run in a radio adaptation of the classic film Odd Man Out (originally aired on CBS on December 30, 1954) and as a detective investigating a murder in a coal mine in "The Cave-In" (originally aired on CBS on July 5, 1955). Plus, Wright shows off his versatility by playing two roles in "The Englishman" from Have Gun, Will Travel (originally aired on CBS on January 11, 1959).
