Good start to an unfortunately short lived series
5 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Mike Longstreet is blinded and his wife killed by a bomb hidden in a champagne bottle. He goes to a luxurious sanitarium run by Dr. Dan Stockman for rehabilitation and training. Understandably, he becomes obsessed with finding who killed his wife and rightly assumes he was the real target. His boss Duke Paige tells Mike about a major jewel robbery and that other similar robberies occurred in other cities. In a very clever bit of detective work, Mike figures out the gimmick used by the thieves to gain access to the jewels. With assistance of his Braille teacher, Nikki Bell, Mike decides to continue his career as investigator for the Great Pacific Insurance Company. Particularly noteworthy in the cast is Jeannette Nolan as Mike's mother and John McIntyre as Dr. Stockman. Baynard Kendrick is acknowledged in the credits as the creator of the characters. Kendrick's blind detective Duncan Maclain (first appearing in the late 1930s) was portrayed by Edward Arnold in two wonderful movies. But the first famous blind detective was the English Max Carrados who was featured in a number of highly popular short stories written by Ernest Bramah starting in 1914.
