Philip Marlowe Old Time Radio Program

Philip Marlowe

"Get this and get it straight. Crime is a sucker’s road, and those who travel it wind up in the gutter, the prison, or an early grave."

The character of Philip Marlowe was created by Raymond Chandler. His first appearance was in the novel "The Big Sleep" published in 1939. Followed by such other titles as: "Farewell, My Lovely", "The High Window", "The Lady in the Lake", and four other books. Marlowe was another of the rough, hardboiled, tough as nails private detectives. He smokes, he drinks, he makes a mean cup of coffee….without a filter. In short, he’s tough, Chuck Norris tough.

Marlowe’s first appearance on the radio was on the Lux Radio Theater’s production of "Murder, My Sweet" in 1945. Dick Powell played the lead for the Lux show. "The Adventures of Philip Marlowe" premiered in 1947 as a summertime replacement for the Bob Hope Show, starring Van Heflin as Marlowe. It did well enough to become a regular series in 1948, as "The New Adventures of Philip Marlowe", this time Gerald Mohr played the lead. The New Adventures were directed by Norman Macdonnell, who was able to bring some of the actors and crew that he worked with on the high quality "Escape" program. The combination of Chandler’s character, the acting of Mohr, and Macdonnell’s quality direction make this an excellent example of the tough guy detective genre. The show lasted from 1947 to 1951.
