    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. The show 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.

    Philip Marlow

    Not thought provoking. Stereotype plots but good listening when doing the ironing. A good example of this genre.
