— A “Dangerous Assignment” old-time radio play aired on NBC on May 17, 1950
A Belly Dancer’s Perspective
Government agent, Steve Mitchel, goes to the Oasis Club to ask about Yusef and how he died. He expects the charming Sarita, a belly dancer, to know Yusef well. Yusef was captivated by her beauty, but to her, he was just one of many men who fell in love with her. She didn’t talk to him about his work because that kind of thing does not interest her. Sarita is really only interested in herself. She is very narcissistic about her own beauty, and doesn’t think a beautiful woman needs to be modest. Modesty, she says, is for the unlovely.
An Interesting Connection
She and her friend, Triflus, are able to recount the incident that ended in Yusef’s death. The details don’t seem to help Mitchel much in his investigation, but he is able to connect Triflus to the Five Star Oil Company that he is investigating.
Back at Headquarters, Mitchel meets with Haroon and finds out about the logistics of moving the oil from the oilfields to the coast. Somewhere between the oilfields and the Persian Gulf, the oil is being stolen. Mitchel is looking for a weak spot in the company’s record keeping and logistics.
