Possibly the most popular fictional private eye of all time, Michael Shayne starred in pulp magazines and dime store detective novels for close to half a century. The character finally made it to TV in an hour-long series that ran on NBC from 1960 to 1961. The Miami-based private eye was played by Richard Denning, while his secretary Lucy Hamilton was played by Patricia Donahue. Jerry Paris co-starred as reporter Tim Rourke, with Herbert Rudley as Lieutenant Will Gentry of the Miami Police Department. Though it lasted for only one season, the hard-boiled stories, gorgeous female guest stars, and Denning's charismatic performance make Michael Shayne an unfairly overlooked TV classic.MURDER AND THE WANTON BRIDE: After the owner of a high-priced fitness club is killed, Mike uncovers an unusual love triangle between the man's wife and two of his employees - all of whom are suspects in his murder. Guest-starring vivacious B-movie scream queen Beverly Garland.MURDER IN WONDERLAND: A gangland accountant is murdered, but not before hiding a list with the names of the city's top gangsters inside a copy of Alice in Wonderland. Now all of Miami, including Mike, is on the hunt for the missing book. This episode is directed by actor-turned-television director Paul Stewart, best known as Charles Foster Kane's butler Raymond in Orson Welles' masterpiece Citizen Kane.
