Richard Diamond, Private Detective was a radio show starring Dick Powell which aired from 1949 to 1953, first on NBC, then ABC and finally on CBS.

The television series was produced by Powell's company, Four Star Television, and that series ran for 3 years from 1957 to 1960. On TV, David Janssen played the hard boiled private eye and his secretary renamed “Sam”, was only ever shown on camera from the waist down, most assurardidly to display her beautiful legs. It was later leared that the legs belonged to Mary Tyler Moore. THIS EPISODE: June 28, 1953. CBS network. "The Rifle Case". Sponsored by: Rexall. Gustav Hayden, a German gunmaker, hires Diamond to protect his newly invented gun. This is a network, sponsored version.

Rocket Racket (Aired March 23, 1954)
Frank Sinatra seemed very comfortable in the role of Rocco Fortunato--'Rocky Fortune'--and the scripts that George Lefferts and Ernest Kinoy wrote for Sinatra made for some fascinating adventures. The role was clearly written specifically for him, and more importantly for the more 'adult' persona his agents and publicity reps were trying to portray of him at this point in his career. He'd already done the teen and 20-something idol gig, and he had been expressing more of an interest in dramatic work. Perhaps Sinatra's managers were simply hedging their bets. Sinatra's greatest initial dramatic role in From Here To Eternity was released October 19, 1953, just weeks after Rocky Fortune began its 26-week run on NBC. As we all know now, From Here to Eternity was a box-office smash, propelling Sinatra into a whole new career in Film. Show Notes From The Digital Deli. THIS EPISODE: March 23, 1954. NBC network. "Rocket Racket". Sustaining. Rocky gets a job that pays $10,000 to ride a rocket to the moon! This is a network version. Frank Sinatra, Howard Culver, Don Diamond, George Lefferts (writer), Andrew C. Love (director), Dan Riss, Edith Terry, William Oyler. 23:46. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

Old Man Graham's Wife (Aired June 4, 1946)
Boston Blackie first appeared in crime stories published in The American Magazine and Redbook written by former confidence man Jack Boyle (whose stories were originally published under the byline "6006" (his prison number).

"But withal, one of the most entertaining men in the world, and so far as his dealings with me went, a square shooter ... He wrote, I should say, the best crook stories that were ever put on paper." Boston Blackie was portrayed in silent films by Bert Lytell, Lionel Barrymore, David Powell, William Russell, Forest Stanley and Raymond Glenn before Chester Morris made the role his own in 14 Columbia films and in a 1944 NBC summer replacement series (with Richard Lane reprising his screen role as Inspector Farraday).
