Storyline

Miles Banyon was a tough but honest private detective operating out of Los Angeles during the '30s. For $20 a day plus expenses, Banyon would take almost any case, ranging from missing persons to theft to murder. Since his office was located in the same building as Peggy Revere's secretarial school, Banyon found himself with a different pretty receptionist almost every week. His police contact was Sgt. McNeil. Written by Marty McKee <mmckee@soltec.net>

A Nice Period Piece. Good Nostalgia!
11 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved this series when it was running during 1972-73. My father was also a big fan because it was set in the late 1930s when he had been in college. We used to get together and watch it as a weekly ritual. Although the show captured the flavor of the period in look and dialog for the most part, my father would always spot the occasional historical inaccuracies. He should have been the technical consultant! Anyway,Robert Forster was excellent as the "new" John Garfield and a good supporting cast and good guest stars always made it fun to watch. A made-for-TV movie that aired in 1971 (an obvious pilot) also starred Forster along with Jose Ferrer, Darren McGavin and Hermoine Gingold and is also worth watching. I would love to see the shows again after all these years. Too bad they were never really re-run.
