The Miss Universe Contest Murder (Aired July 27, 1954)
Peter Chambers, the dashing playboy private eye, came from the pen of Henry Kane. The output of his writing career included over 60 novels, including about 30 featuring Peter Chambers. In an interest- ing twist, Mr. Kane became the writer, director and producer for the radio series based on his characters. Crime & Peter Chambers aired in 1954 on NBC stations, running from April to September, 1954. A total of 23 30-minute shows were broad- cast of which 21 are in circulation, according to Jay Hickerson's "Ultimate Guide" (see References section below). The part of Peter Chambers was played Dane Clark. Clark previously acted tough guy parts in a number of movies, starting in 1942. He made a fairly convincing detective. Bill Zuckert played Lt. Parker in the series.
