Part 1 of the Adventures of Philip Marlowe series.

Description
							Gerald Mohr stars as Raymond Chandler's hard-boiled gumshoe in 'The Adventures of Philip Marlowe', a series based on one of the most popular sleuths in the history of crime fiction. First aired in 1947 with Van Heflin in the title  role, Chandler disliked the initial incarnation, dubbing it 'totally flat'. However, in the 1948 revival, Chandler admitted satisfaction, remarking that  Mohr's voice 'packed personality'.  Mohr indeed made the role of Marlowe his own, portraying a brash and forceful tough guy who could let fly with the  occasional wisecrack. The scripts were equally tough, focusing on hard-hitting  action while also showcasing many of the distinguished actors and actresses  from Hollywood's Radio Row, including Lawrence Dobkin, Jeff Corey, Betty Lou  Gerson, and Harry Bartell.
