Peter Gunn: Does the name Lisa Nye mean anything to you?

Peter Gunn: Lieutenant, I'm continually amazed at your knowledge of the fine arts.
Lieutenant Jacoby: The public library is free. Comic books cost money.

Pete Meets Boston Blackie
22 October 2015 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Pretty good Gunn episode with an inventive plot. A sympathetic Pete hires out to little boy Sepi for what looks like about 50-cents. The kid wants our gumshoe to find who beat up his dad, but soon denies either he or his father need help. Plus, he lives not with his dad but with wealthy folks he calls Aunt and Uncle. So what's going on.

For old-time TV fans, the biggest draw may be seeing Boston Blackie's Kent Taylor (1951-53) as the uncle. He's his usual debonair, polished self, along with the familiar pencil-thin mustache. In fact, he appears an older version of Craig Stevens and might have gotten the Gunn role 10-years before. Also, catch usual bad girl June Vincent as the aunt, a good slick pairing with Taylor. Anyway the banter with Jacoby is again a snappy diversion, along with the usual noir shadings. Too bad the wrap-up takes all of about 10-seconds. It's like they were running out of film. All in all, a pretty good episode with a touch of nostalgia.
