RICHARD DIAMOND – The Ed Church Case – 1958

Private Investigator: Richard Diamond was a series that ran for 77 episodes between 1957 and 1960. The lead was played by David Janssen.

In this episode Janssen is hired by newspaper owner, James Flavin, to find a missing reporter. The reporter, Roscoe Karns, was on a big case involving protection rackets in the New York bar scene. Flavin tells Janssen that Karns used to be a lush and he might just have started on the bottle again.

Janssen hits several bars and clubs looking for Karns. He picks up the trail of the reporter. This leads to the apartment of pretty young thing, Jil Jarmyn. There he finds Karn passed out in a drunken stupor. Also there is Jarmyn's squeeze, Vic Morrow.

Morrow tells Janssen they all met in a bar and came to the apartment later. Karns had too much eel juice and passed out. Morrow says he will put Karn's in a cab and send him home when he sobers up. Janssen agrees and heads off to tell Flavin about finding Karns.

Something though does not seem right to Janssen. Why would Karns fall off the wagon in the middle of a big story. He digs deeper and soon discovers that Karns had discovered the boss of the protection racket. The boss, Dan Barton, just happens to be Karns only son. Vic Morrow is Barton's gun. This had upset Karns so much he had taken to the bottle again. Needless to say, fists fly and guns are pulled before Barton and Morrow are arrested.

The director was long time b-film helmsman. Leigh Jason. Of note here, is d of p William V Skall. Skall was a 10 time nominated and 1 time Oscar winner. He lensed such big productions as, REAP THE WILD WIND, THE FOREST RANGERS, SAN ANTONIO, ROPE, KIM and QUO VADIS.
