Starring Brian Donlevy as Steve Mitchell, Dangerous Assignment is a product of the Cold War, with mystery and intrigue cropping up across the globe. Mitchell, an agent for an unnamed U.S. goverment agency, is dispatched to some exotic, faraway place at the beginning of each episode.
Mitchell's narration is done in first person, present tense, adding an unusual twist for this type of show. But the plot is always good (USA and Freedom) against unspeakable evil (Communism and the Iron Curtain).
If you like Dangerous Assignment, be sure to check out The Man Called X. It is cut from the same mold.
