My mother LOVED that show. The phrase, "Now that's a good looking man!" comes to mind from that period whenever I see anything to do with Mike Connors, and I was pretty young during the series run. Somethings you just don't/can't forget, no matter how hard you try.

Brings back memories alright…

How about Craig Steven as Peter Gunn, a Private Investigator who was considered a sophisticated hipster and a dapper dresser who loved Cool Jazz.

Another contemporary was Dick Powell who starred as Richard Diamond, Private Detective, a radio series from 1949 to 1953, a light-hearted detective who often ended the episodes singing to his girlfriend. David Janssen later starred in the television adaptation from 1957 to 1960.

And how many remember Brian Keith as Mike Hammer in a television pilot… but not picked up by any networks…

Later there was Darren McGavin and then Stacy Keach, who most people remember from the television series, played Mike Hammer in an unapologetically masculine style with little concern for political correctness…

Well Peggy and Tim... It appears that a few of the Boo-Birds (Judging by the Judgments) don't seem to like our little topic about Detective shows.

LOL... guess they don't have any taste for the classic noir tradition of Gumshoes like we do... oh well, their loss.

Da nada amigo, tis nothing, some of us seasoned senior citizens also like to spice up the cooking pot of thoughts postured by those who have an assumed stance or exaggerated pose or attitude towards what we tend to cook up here on Topix.[and no... I will not translate for those who do not understand... FOFLMAO] However, maybe WTCSRET will in his own way... getem' James... LOL

Peggy, Tim, and Clueless... Have a great weekend (even though it's supposed to rain again!)

And if you read on, I believe the answer to your other question is Jack Webb (Dragnet).
