A 15-minute daily adventure serial featuring Rocky Jordan, proprietor of the Cafe Tambourine in Istanbul. Rocky was a soldier of fortune who was rough rather than elegant. He was played by Jack Moyles. The show was off the air for several years and then reappeared in 1949-1950 as "Rocky Jordan," a 30-minute program heard only on a CBS regional network. The show appeared again on the national network in 1951-1952, with George Raft in the title role.
