Richard Diamond Private Detective (1957) - B&W - 30 min

This is a classic detective show, made in 1957. Richard Diamond Private Detective was originally written by Blake Edwards and starred Dick Powell as the cool private eye on a radio show. When the TV medium came along... Powell decided he was too busy, so he recruited a young actor named David Meyer, who later changed his name to Janssen at Powell's suggestion. Diamond was an ex OSS officer, who later decides to become a private eye. The show is remembered for a character named Sam, a hot secretary. We never saw her face - just her legs. Mary Tyler Moore was the first Sam, until she revealed her role and did a hosiery ad for TV guide, and they promptly fired her. She was replaced by Roxane Brooks. To this day, people still argue about who was their favorite Sam. Complete with original TV commericals!

Judith Braun as the ambitious newspaper reporter looking for the photo that proves her story of corruption between a political boss and the mob. She lies to Diamond, but as he admits, he's a sucker for a damsel in distress. But perhaps the saddest moment comes when they roll that incredible 1957 over the cliff. Also you gotta love the Kool Shake commercial!
