Trivia

This was the fifth of Warner Brothers' formulaic detective series. It was proceeded by 77 Sunset Strip (1958), Bourbon Street Beat (1959), Hawaiian Eye (1959), and Surfside Six (1960). By changing the time period to the 1920s, it was able to cash in on the interest in that period, generated by the success of the Desilu produced series The Untouchables (1959). See more »

Comments Regarding The Roaring 20's Television Show
23 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I too fondly remember the Roaring 20's and had a serious pre-teen crush on Dorothy Provine for many years. As far as I know, the series is not available on video disc or tape. So far the only way I have found to obtain copies (few and far between)of this great series was from sellers on Ebay, who had videotaped the series from re-runs in their local area. It appears that the tapes I purchased were 4th or 5th generation tapes and thus the quality was not as great as I would have liked, but nevertheless, all the copies I purchased, except one, were watchable, and brought back some great memories. Compared to the TV standards of today, these old series are somewhat lacking in story lines and excitement, but Miss Provine's singing is just as entertaining today as it was in the 1960's. That being said, if this great old series did become available for purchase, I would probably be first in line at the checkout counter.
