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

A much better series than "City of Angels" with Wayne Rogers. Top notch direction, top notch scripts and top notch acting and not to mention it was a Quinn Martin Production! Which meant QUALITY all the way. But, too bad it didn't last long because according to QM it was just to expensive to produce. I would definitely agree that Robert Forster was channeling John Garfield. it's too bad these aren't out on DVD. Luckily, I own the paperback novelization of the pilot episode, so, if that is the only way to enjoy this excellent series,is by reading the book, I'm going to do it right now. I have an idea for the DVD, why not put Banyon and The Manhunter together on one DVD?
