RARA-AVIS: The Spanish Prisoner con

There was talk a few days ago about Gruber's book THE SPANISH PRISONER. Last night I listened to an episode of "The Adventures of Sam Spade" from 9 Maych 1951, one of the last season, with Steve Dunne as Spade. It's
"The Spanish Prisoner Caper" and involves the same con. Spade solves that, and a counterfeiting ring, by sheer coincidence and luck, even getting Effie to look in his "Con games, obsolete" file. The Spade of the radio show has little relation to the book Spade, but nevertheless they're enjoyable shows.
