Storyline

The first TV adaptation of the adventures of super sleuth Ellery Queen, broadcast live from Hollywood. Queen was a mystery writer who assisted his father, a detective with the New York Police Department, in solving murders. Queen's methods were arcane and intellectual rather than action oriented, and he always astounded his father by arriving at a correction solution by purely deductive reasoning. Written by Marg Baskin <marg@asd.raytheon.ca>

Ellery Queen by name only
19 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Let's first put aside the budgetary restraints of television in its infancy for a moment and focus on story instead. Granted, I have only seen one episode of the 1950s Ellery Queen series. The story itself is more than adequate, but hardly the hero of Frederick Dannay and Manfred Lee's creation, Without the complete cast of characters, and the novelty of letting the viewer decide who the killer was, this is at best a curio of early television before it found its own way. Even the two creators of Ellery Queen and his father the Inspector didn't truly see their creations come to life until the Jim Hutton/David Wayne series of the 1970s. Still, it was interesting to see a curio of the days of TV before I came into the world. And it is fascinating to read about how the demise of Dumont television came about.
