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>

Low, LOW Budget early TV
2 May 2009 | by (Tecumseh ok) – See all my reviews

Yeah, this was REAL low budget stuff. The entire musical score was some apprentice on a Hammond Organ. The sets were made of cardboard and the acting was just as stiff. Watching this gives you a chance to see just how desperate the post-war generation was for at-home entertainment. the best part of the episodes I saw were the Kaiser-Frazier auto commercials. I guess I'll add this so the school-marms at this site will give me credit for 10 lines. Have I made it yet? No, not yet. So let's try a few more words here. There, I think that does it. No? Maybe this will be enough. Good lord, how many more words do these folks want? Someone needs to send them to effective writing classes.
