Richard Diamond, Private Eye Old Time Radio Program

Richard Diamond, Private Detective

30 Minute Detective Mystery episodes

Richard Diamond was Dick Powellís highly-successful attempt to distance himself from his earlier image as a baby-faced crooner. After his appearance in Murder My Sweet as the hardboiled gumshoe Phillip Marlowe, he consolidated his success with Richard Diamond, a sophisticated blend of lightheartedness and hard-hitting action.

Richard Diamond premiered in 1949, and featured Virginia Gregg as Diamondís girlfriend Helen Asher, and Wilms Herbert playing dual roles as Asherís long-suffering butler, Francis, and the perennially-dense desk sergeant, Otis. Ed Begley played Walt Levinson, the police detective whose character served as a foil to Diamondís deceptively carefree demeanor, which masked a cunning mind honed by his OSS training.

Blake Edwards, of Pink Panther fame, was a writer, and sometime director, of a number of Richard Diamond episodes.

The show went off the air in 1952, but was later revived for a time as a television series starring David Janssen, the original Fugitive.
