One of DuMont's most popular and lasting programs, this live crime series was set in New York. It not only kept Roscoe Karns from retirement but cast him opposite his son Todd. The DuMont offices and corridors were used as sets. At the end of each program, Rocky King would exchange telephone small talk with his unseen wife Mabel and, after hanging up, say to no one in particular, "Great girl, that Mabel."

This was one of the most popular and long-running programs on the short-lived DuMont Television Network, which folded in 1955. The long, dark corridors through which "Rocky King" walked at the beginning and end of the show were actual backstage hallways at the DuMont Tele-Centre in New York City. See more
