EPISODE DESCRIPTION
The King In Yellow (Aired July 8, 1947)
Dashiell Hammett introduced the new genre, and Sam Spade, in 1930 in his novel The Maltese Falcon. A few years later Raymond Chandler came along and perfected the type, with his detective, Philip Marlowe. Chandler introduced Marlowe in his first novel, The Big Sleep, and Philip Marlowe continued to solve crimes in six subsequent Chandler novels. Chandler had previously published a number of short stories featuring other detectives; however, Marlowe proved so popular that when the stories were later republished the author often switched the detectives to Philip Marlowe. Chandler's style was unique. His sparse style was full of wonderfully sharp similies and rich descriptive narration. THIS EPISODE: July 8, 1947. NBC network. "The King In Yellow". Sponsored by: Pepsodent, Trim (hair tonic with olive oil!). A trumpet player named King Leopoldi is being blackmailed. King dies and more murders follow. The program is referred to as "The Pepsodent Program." Sounds like Gerald Mohr (who would later play the lead) is in the cast. Van Heflin, Raymond Chandler (creator, writer), Milton Geiger (adaptor), Gerald Mohr, Wendell Niles (announcer), Lyn Murray (composer, conductor). 29:43. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.
