A wonderful series of shows, featuring The Rogues., 23 November 2001
Author: Peter22060 from United States

The Dick Powell Theatre was released on video cassette in 1985 by RKO Home Video. The best feature in the series is a murder mystery entitled, "Who Killed Julie Greer"? The cast includes Dick Powell, Nick Adams, Ralph Bellamy, Lloyd Bridges, Jack Carson, Carolyn Jones, Mickey Rooney, Ronald Reagan and Kay Thompson. Powell stars as Inspector Burke, later portrayed in a separate series by Gene Barry. The Rogues featured stories with David Niven, Charles Boyer and Gig Young alternating as the male lead. Robert Coote and Gladys Cooper were supporting players.

The series also featured the comedian Milton Berle in a rare dramatic appearance... a hard luck professional card dealer in: DOYLE AGAINST THE HOUSE.

The tapes were recorded in black and white and ran 52 minutes.
