This story was originally done on the CBS radio series "Suspense" as "Cabin B-13" on March 16, 1943, starring Ralph Bellamy. It was so popular that the story was repeated on November 9, 1943 with a different cast, including Margo as the wife, Philip Dorn as the doctor, William Johnstone as the husband and Dennis Hoey as the ship's Captain. CBS later used the title "Cabin B-13" for a 1948 radio anthology series written by John Dickson Carr, the author of the original "Suspense" radio play. CBS presented the story once again on the TV version of 'Suspense" on March 29, 1949 with Charles Korvin & Eleanor Lynn. 1958 brought yet another version to TV as an episode of the 'Climax!" series that aired June 26th. It also turned up on the Canadian Broadcasting Corp (CBC) series "The Unforeseen" on April 22, 1959. The cable network USA aired a remake, titled "Treacherous Crossing," starring Lindsay Wagner, on April 8, 1992. See more »

After a whirlwind romance of only four weeks Ruth Stanton has married her dream man John Bowman and is about to set sail on a luxury liner for her honeymoon. Once aboard her husband promptly disappears after a visit to the purser's office. Ruth is distraught, only trouble is nobody has seen her husband, she has no id or ticket for the cruise and those aboard believe she is quite mad. She is befriended by the ships doctor Paul Manning, who is also unsure as to her state of mind, but he sets out to help her find her man. Ruth gets a telephone call from her missing man who tells her to trust no one and that they are both in danger from unknown sources, is he real or is she mad? Dangerous Crossing is one of the latest releases in the Fox Noir series, with b movie specialist Newman at the helm it's a pacey 76 mins and although its not, it plays much more like an espionage film, where nobody can be trusted aboard the fog bound liner. Jeanne Crain overacts a little as her character becomes ever more demented but in true Hollywood fashion its nothing that a classic slap in the face doesn't cure. If you're observant you will spot the clues as to the husbands disappearance early on, but I still found it a pleasant way to pass an afternoon.
