    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.

    Bogart is Slate Shannon, a hotelier who owns a boat he calls “Bold Venture” and Bacall as Sailor Duval, is his love interest/foil who joins him on adventures of rescue, intrigue, and crime fighting set against the colorful backdrop that is Cuba, as they become detectives for hire. The repartee between Bogie and Bacall is witty and biting as they turn some tongue-in-cheek dialogue into sparkling chemistry that far transcends the script.

    "Love and Freindship"* is a juvenile story by Jane Austen, dated 1790, when Austen was 14 years old. "Love and Freindship" (the misspelling is one of many in the story) is clearly a parody of romantic novels Austen read as a child. This is clear even from the subtitle, “Deceived in Freindship and Betrayed in Love”, which neatly undercuts the title. *Misspelling intentional by Jane Austen.

    Duffy's Tavern, an American radio situation comedy which ran for 10 years, often featured top-name stage and film guest stars but always hooked those around the misadventures, get-rich-quick-scheming, and romantic missteps of the title establishment's malaprop-prone, metaphor-mixing manager, Archie, played by the writer/actor who co-created the show, Ed Gardner. In the show's familiar opening, "When Irish Eyes Are Smiling," either solo on an old-sounding piano or by a larger orchestra, was interrupted by the ring of a telephone....
