"Get this, and get it straight: Crime is a sucker's road, and those who travel it wind up in the gutter, the prison, or the grave." Raymond Chandler's tough, capable, smart-talking creation Philip Marlowe is one of the best-known fictional investigators in America. Through Marlowe's gaze, the translucent light of the L.A. basin comes to life, the nighttime smell of jasmine and sage, the sudden storms that cause traffic wrecks, and the desert winds that set nerves on edge. Van Heflin and Gerald Mohr each play the title role in these electric episodes, cracking wise with the angry glee of a take-charge operative who careens, cajoles, shoves, shouts, and sometime shoots his way to a solution in his quest for a stolen object, a missing person, or a killer needing to be found. Includes two Van Heflin episodes never before available to the public since their original broadcast

The adventures of Philip Marlowe. original radio broadcasts by Hollywood 360( )

11 editions published between 2009 and 2016 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gerald Mohr stars as Raymond Chandler's hard-boiled gumshoe in The Adventures of Philip Marlowe, a series based on one of the most popular sleuths in the history of crime fiction. First aired in 1947 with Van Heflin in the title role, Chandler disliked the initial incarnation, dubbing it "totally flat." However, in the 1948 revival, Chandler admitted satisfaction, remarking that Mohr's voice "packed personality." Mohr indeed made the role of Marlowe his own, portraying a brash and forceful tough guy who could let fly with the occasional wisecrack. The scripts were equally tough, focusing on hard-hitting action while also showcasing many of the distinguished actors and actresses from Hollywood's Radio Row, including Lawrence Dobkin, Jeff Corey, Betty Lou Gerson, and Harry Bartell

Raymond Chandler's celebrated hard-boiled private eye, Philip Marlowe, made his radio debut in 1945 on the Lux Radio Theatre with "Murder My Sweet," starring Dick Powell. Two years later, NBC brought the character to the air in his own weekly series starring Van Heflin, The New Adventures of Philip Marlowe. A summer replacement for The Bob Hope Show, the series was short-lived, ending September 9, 1947. CBS revived it in 1948 with The Adventures of Philip Marlowe, starring Gerald Mohr. With producer/director Norman MacDonnell at the helm, the series captured the largest audience in radio by 1949. Scripts were by Gene Levitt, Robert Mitchell, Mel Dinelli, and Kathleen Hite. While Chandler's distinctive similes were largely lacking, the strong, dry, sarcastic narration was there, and the way Mohr delivered his lines made you forget they weren't written by Chandler. Supporting Mohr were radio's best, including Howard McNear, Parley Baer, Lawrence Dobkin, Virginia Gregg, and Lou Krugman. One of the best detective shows on the air at the time, it lasted until 1951
