    Hollywood's beloved song and dance man, Dick Powell, turned gumshoe in this 1945-era detective yarn. At once a tough-talking detective working with police to solve tough murder cases and yet an affable crooner who ended nearly every episode singing to his girlfriend in his rich baritone voice. Whether murder or music, Dick Powell beguiled radio audiences through 100+ episodes before the show moved to television and the role was eventually taken over by David Janssen, later the star of The Fugitive.

    Rogue's Gallery was an old-time radio program starring Dick Powell as Richard Rogue, a private detective who trailed luscious blondes, protected witnesses, and did whatever else detectives do to make a living. What set this show apart from others in the genre was that midway through every episode, Rogue would invariably end up getting knocked out and spending his dream time in acerbic conversation on Cloud 8 with his subconscious self named Eugor - Rogue spelled backward.

    Combining Dick Powell's tough-guy image with his impressive way with a song, Richard Diamond, Private Detective featured a hard-boiled gumshoe who rarely took himself too seriously; he was simply an ex-cop who had decided to hang out his own shingle in the investigation business. He demonstrated a breezy insouciance to authority, generally concluded each case with a song sung to his sweetheart, and indulged himself with in-jokes, many referencing other radio detectives.

    Dick Powell established himself as a silver screen icon in the 1930s as the apple-cheeked crooning sensation in countless Depression-era musicals. But the 1940s found him playing every tough guy from Philip Marlowe to Richard Rogue...to Richard Diamond, private detective. Powell's portrayal of Diamond and his flawless chemistry with Virginia Gregg as the detective's socialite girlfriend, Helen Asher, brought the series' admiringly clever scripts to life.
