Overlooked Films: RICHARD DIAMOND, PRIVATE DETECTIVE in "Custody"



Here's the second episode of this series, originally broadcast in July 1957, when the show still retained some of its noir roots. The title "Call Mr. D" was used when the show went into syndication. The dialogue and narration sounds true to the earlier radio show, but while Dick Powell's delivery  made the lines funny, David Janssen sounds serious.

Did not know about this series. I was a little young for it then but looks like fun.

Nice little episode with no violence. I hadn't seen any of this series, being out of the country, but I enjoyed this.

I especially enjoyed the scenes with the Connies.
