Tom Conway portrayed Mark Saber from October 1951 to June 1954. Donald Gray, a native of South Africa, played the part from December 1955 through May 1960.[2] Nelson Case was the announcer.[3] Several of the episodes were combined and released as second feature films. The character originally appeared on the radio series ABC Mystery Theater. The debonair Saber wore pinstriped suits and sported a pencil-thin mustache. He tracked down criminals by his brilliant use of deduction as well as regular police methods. Saber always got the culprit he pursued. His assistant, the more traditional Sergeant Tim Moloney, was first played by James Burke. A succession of actors comprised the supporting cast

Sunday Night Theatre
Sunday Night Theatre was a long-running series of televised live television plays screened by BBC Television from early 1950 until 1959. The productions for the first five years or so of the run were re-staged live the following Thursday, partly because of technical limitations in this era, and the theatrical basis of early television drama. Some of the earliest collaborations between Rudolph Cartier and Nigel Neale were produced for this series, including Arrow to the Heart (1952, 1956) and Nineteen Eighty-Four (1954). The Sunday night drama slot was subsequently renamed The Sunday-Night Play which ran for four seasons between 1960 and 1963.[1] ITV transmitted its own unrelated run of Sunday Night Theatre between 1971 and 1974. Archive status[edit] The overwhelming majority of the run (1950–59) of 721 plays are missing from television archives; only 27 are believed to still exist[2] as Telerecordings. The Thursday 'repeat performance; of Nineteen Eighty-Four survives in this form
