Rocky Jordan
starred Jack Moyles (pictured) playing an American running The Cafe Tambourine in Cairo, Egypt.  His attempts to avoid trouble were always in vain, placing him in the middle of a new mystery/adventure every week. 

The episodes were executed via typical noir-style narration, but the departure from the usual hard-boiled detective character, as well as careful attention to authentic sound effects, music and other details, gave the series a fresh and exotic feel which made it a favorite with fans.

There were several runs of the show, beginning under the name A Man Named Jordan, beginning in 1945 and continuing as late as 1957.  George Raft played the title role in some later-version episodes.
