Summary

He's tall. He's tough. He's the king of the hardboiled private eyes, and he's stalking the rain-swept streets of postwar Los Angeles. He's Philip Marlowe, here with 20 thrill-a-minute episodes produced and directed by Norman Macdonnell.

Tough-voiced Gerald Mohr plays Raymond Chandler's Marlowe as a man who has been burned by the world a little too often for his own good. He finds mysteries among valuables and the violent, facing down false witnesses and frame-ups. And on one stormy winter night, his past catches up with him.

Episodes include: "The Indian Giver" 08-13-49; "The Eager Witness" 08-27-49; "The Open Window" 10-08-49; "The Birds on the Wing" 11-26-49; "The Kid on the Corner" 12-03-49; "The Covered Bridge" 01-14-50; "The Bid for Freedom" 01-21-50; "The Long Arm" 02-07-50; "The Grim Echo" 02-14-50; "The Monkey's Uncle" 03-07-50; "The Vital Statistic" 03-14-50; "The Man on the Roof" 04-04-50; "The Angry Eagle" 04-18-50; "Cloak of Kamehameha" 05-16-50; "Face to Forget" 06-14-50; "The Pelican's Roost" 06-28-50; "The Girl From Pitchfork Corners" 07-05-50; "The Collector's Item" 08-25-50; "The Soft Spot" 09-01-50; "The Final Payment" 09-15-50.

To old and poor production values

This is just to old a production. Endless recaps of the show you are listening to. Promotions for other programs slotted in. Simplistic stories. One of my worst Audible purchases.
