Dick Powell and Virgina Gregg during the ABC run of Richard Diamond from KECA Studio X in Hollywood. Lovely former actress Helen Mack directed and produced many of the Richard Diamond programs.
Throughout Richard Powell's meteoric music career during the 1930s, Powell was the baby-faced crooner that preceded Frank Sinatra in setting the Great Depression era gals' hearts to fluttering. Largely on the strength of his critical and popular success in Murder, My Sweet, he persuaded F.W. Fitch Bandwagon Mysteries' Rogue's Gallery was an almost instant hit for Powell, and resulted in an eventual franchise of seven years of Rogue's Gallery, three years of which starred Dick Powell as Richard Rogue. But within two years, Dick Powell and NBC struck a deal to essentially reintroduce Powell's Richard Rogue character as Richard Diamond, Private Detective, or as it was often referred to, Richard Diamond, The Singing Detective.
While it's unclear whether Dick Powell and NBC specifically set out to recycle Powell's Richard Rogue characterization, history can't help but beg the question. It's also unclear whether Powell set out to make the 'singing detective' element of NBC's Richard Diamond, Private Detective a permanent fixture of the new characterization. Quite naturally, Powell's interpretations of Richard Rogue and Richard Diamond can't help but invite comparisons.
In another obvious comparison, Powell's Richard Rogue character, when he wasn't unconscious, was a guy that liked to play the field when it came to love interests. On the production side, Richard Diamond, Private Detective enjoyed a 'two-fer' of sorts, with Jaime Del Valle producing and directing his wife, Virginia Gregg in the role of Helen Asher. While often strapped himself, Richard Diamond ironically enjoys a steady relationship with Helen Asher--portrayed by Virginia Gregg, a gorgeous 'trust fund baby' sitting atop a reported $10M trust fund. A Hollywood production for the entire franchise, the NBC run was produced at NBC's Radio City-West and the ABC run originated from KECA's Studio Z for rehearsals and Studio X for recorded broadcasts. Promoted as a comedy -- detective - romance series, all three elements were well supported.
When it came time for Rexall and NBC to part company, Camel Cigarettes, Powell, Del Valle and the American Broadcasting Company struck a deal to take the series to ABC. Dick Powell stayed with the franchise until the end of the Camel-sponsored run on June 27, 1952. Powell's directing experience with RKO and Hughes soon propelled him to a position as producer for RKO, but Hughes ultimately sold RKO in 1955.
Powell had always been very realistic in his approach to both his film noir characterizations as well as his Richard Rogue and Richard Diamond characters over Radio. We invite you to compare our fully provenanced research with the Certifed Accurate Richard Diamond, Private Detective log. Right up front, the commercial otr community, entrenched as it is and as wildly inaccurate as it is, has long misrepresented the highly popular Richard Diamond, Private Detective canon since the inception of 'organized' otr, or 'old time radio.' The term, 'otr' itself, is inaccurate from the start.
Note, by comparison, the scrupulously accurate catalogs of operatic and symphonic recordings from the same era--most often referred to as 'classical recordings'--and catalogs of jazz recordings from the same era. The difference, in practice, between classical and jazz catalogs of recordings of the era and vintage, commercially broadcast Radio recordings is that the proponents of 'classical and jazz' recordings highly value and appreciate their collections.
Richard Diamond, Private Detective is a typical example of the travesty that 'otr' exploitation has wrought since its invention in 1975.
The majority of the remaining NBC-broadcast episodes of Richard Diamond failed to tease the plots, storylines or titles to the newspapers and magazine of the era, so that most of the remaining NBC-broadcast episode titles remain anecdotal. The ABC, Camel-sponsored run, by contrast, is supported by the actual scripts for the entire run, preserved and available as part of the reparations imposed by the Government on cigarette manufacturers of the era, at their site.
Nor, apart from the commercial messages, was there anything original about the canon of CBS rebroadcasts from the Rexall-sponsored Richard Diamond recordings originally aired over NBC. Commercial otr vendors have had at least nine years to correct their erroneous Richard Diamond, Private Detective commercial catalogs. The announcer heard in the only circulating rendition--an AFRTS-denatured recording--is Bill Forman, from the NBC Rexall run. We've therefore concluded that The Chapel Hill Case can only be one of the previously unknown titles in the December 1950 range: December 13, December 20, or December 27.
The currently provisional Buried Treasure title cited in the CBS run can't be from the Camel canon since the CBS Rebroadcasts were only from the previous NBC Rexall-sponsored run.
The Pete Rocco Case can only be a rebroadcast of the NBC Rexall-sponsored episode of the same name. The provisionally titled The Hollywood Story can't be a rebroadcast from the Camel-sponsored canon for the same reasons cited above.
The provisionally titled The Charles Johnson Matter can't be a rebroadcast from the Camel-sponsored canon for the same reasons cited above. Indeed, if all of the unaccounted-for episodes from the CBS Rebroadcasts run were employed to fill in the outstanding 'Title Unknown' episodes from the NBC Rexall-sponsored run, that run would have a complete set of titles as well. It's also worth noting that the long-standing The Bloody Hat Case didn't air at Episode No. The CBS Rebroadcasts Run, sponsored by Rexall, were all rebroadcasts of previous Rexall-sponsored Richard Diamond, Private Detective episodes. And, as we've all grown to expect from the otr community, at least 16 currently circulating exemplars of Richard Diamond, Private Detective are intentionally misnamed, truncated, altered or pieced together to disguise the actual recording. We've cataloged the NBC, ABC, CBS and AFRTS canons of Richard Diamond, Private Detective (below) from as many historical provenances as we could assemble.
If, on the other hand, you don't care about the accuracy or historical integrity of your vintage Radio collection, you're welcome to employ the wildly inaccurate commercial catalog details that have been circulating--in error--for at least forty years of 'otr'. We ask one thing and one thing only--if you employ what we publish, attribute it, before we cite you on it.

Richard Powell, for his part was already well into long pants, and trying to break into solid, dramatic Film roles. Fitch, the sponsor of his long-running Fitch Bandwagon Radio variety series to give Powell a try at a detective mystery series for the 1945 Summer season of Fitch Bandwagon, retitled, Fitch Bandwagon Mysteries, then ultimately, Rogue's Gallery. Powell's critical and popular success in the film Johnny O'Clock (1947) further established his reputation as a solid dramatic actor. The Rogue's Gallery franchise had slipped into a hiatus when Barry Sullivan's interpretation of Richard Rogue experienced tepid reviews after the Rogue's Gallery's Summer run of 1947. Powell's interpretation of his Richard Rogue character had also enjoyed a few musical episodes during Powell's run as the character, but given Powell's avowed desire to cement his growing dramatic talent, it would seem counterintutive that he'd lobby for a character that would burst into song as a regular feature of a new Radio series. As Richard Rogue, he almost invariably found himself knocked out by one means or another during each episode.
As Richard Diamond, Powell's found himself in a more abiding--and often challenging--relationship with the legendary Radio, Film and Television character actress, Virginia Gregg, as Helen Asher, Diamond's love interest and foil. Contrary to the vehemently antogonistic relationships between the local constabulary and detectives of the 1940s and 1950s, Richard Diamond enjoyed a relatively cordial relationship with his former colleague on the 5th Precinct's Homicide Bureau, Lieutenant Walter Quincy 'Walt' Levinson, initially portrayed by Ed Begley and later portrayed by Alan Reed.
In addition to her recurring role as Diamond's love interest, Gregg performed in hundreds of other supporting characterizations throughout the run of the series.
From a reading of the scripts it's clear that Powell did quite a bit of adlibbing throughout the run.
NBC sustained the production for the first fifty-two episodes until Rexall Drug Stores picked up the tab for the remainder of the NBC run. Powell's own Film and Television careers had pretty much overtaken all of his time at that point.
Powell, in the meantime, had formed a telefilm production company with David Niven and Charles Boyer, named Four Star Productions. Powell knew he'd struck a nerve with his talent for expositional characterizations and his critics and fans agreed. We've also provided a screen shot of their current log for comparison, HERE, to protect our own further due diligence. There's nothing whatsover 'old time' about the vast majority of surviving vintage Radio recordings from The Golden Age of Radio.
The operatic, classical, and jazz recordings of the era are not only scrupulously cataloged, but historically accurate across the board. The overwhelming majority of 'otr collectors', especially the commercial vendors responsible for the gross inaccuracies in virtually every canon of recordings from the era, don't care a whit about historical accuracy. 1 of the NBC-sustained canon of Richard Diamond is almost certainly The Richard Barton Case, long cited as airing on May 1, 1949 instead of April 24, 1949. 2 of the NBC-sustained canon of Richard Diamond is almost certainly The Wondrous Tale of the Hand-Painted Cow, a storyline later used during the ABC, Camel-sponsored run of Richard Diamond, script-titled, The White Cow Case. Even worse those few storylines, plots or titles that were provided have been for the most part completely rejected by the commercial otr vendors--and hence by the vast majority of otr collectors in their wake. We therefore have specific, fully provenanced titles for every script ever aired during the Camel-sponsored run over ABC. Bill Forman is the only announcer heard on the circulating Jaime Del Valle-transcribed AFRTS recordings, as well as in the Rexall-sponsored runs. The Camel-sponsored script differs materially from the NBC script even though the plot line is the same. It would have to be another Hollywood-themed episode from the remaining, as yet unidentified NBC-broadcast programs.
It would have to be an episode from the remaining, as yet unidentified NBC-broadcast programs. Therefore, the failure to cite a date from which the broadcast was repeated renders any entry in the CBS run without a date from which it was rebroadcast as suspect. If you feel that Golden Age Radio recordings merit the same accuracy, historical integrity, and respect accorded to the equally important classical and jazz catalogs from the era, we invite you to employ our findings.
The OTRR, Calfkiller or OTRCat are certainly good points of departure if you don't care a bit about the accuracy of your collection--or, for that matter, if you simply enjoy multiple copies of the exact same program in each canon of your collections.
If you feel that we've provided you with useful information or saved you some valuable time regarding this log--and you'd like to help us even further--you can help us keep going.

Given the Studio System of the era, Powell found himself offered only musicals or musical comedies in his Film career.
And while his critical and popular success in Film continued to rise, his sponsor of long standing, F.W. Whether it was his desire to provide himself with a last opportunity to 'sing for his supper', or it was imposed on him by NBC, Powell seemed to enjoy the occasional musical interludes. Richard Diamond, Private Detective also saddled him with the great voice talent, Alan Reed, as Lieutenant Levinson, Diamond's friendly nemesis on the Homicide Squad. But stoic that he is, Diamond resists the obvious temptation to simply marry Helen and live off of her trust fund, ala Nick Charles of Thin Man fame. In addition, hubby Jaime Del Valle directed at least a third of the episodes and supervised virtually all of the transcribed programs themselves. Many of both scripted and adlibbed comments occasionally referred to other programs of the era, especially competing detective genre programming. NBC's relationship with Rexall was not without its problems, however and there were periods of problems that went as far as litigation over the production and its continued sponsorship.
Reynolds archives, we have the benefit of original scripts from the entire ABC, Camel-sponsored run. In 1952 Powell was tapped by Howard Hughes to direct RKO's Split Second, released in 1953 almost the same time as Rexall's last sponsored series of Richard Diamond over CBS.
The overwhelming majority of the surviving recordings are as entertaining and timeless today, as they were when they were first broadcast and recorded.
Vintage, commercially broadcast Radio recordings of the era deserve the same attention to detail, scrupulous accuracy and historical detail as their classical and jazz counterparts.
And, indeed, the overwhelming majority of 'otr collectors' treat their 'hoards' like baseball card collections. The Parade Magazine article of August 20, 1950 elaborately re-stages, pictorially, several vignettes from the preceding year of Richard Diamond episodes, complete with Dick Powell posing for each of the re-staged depictions of specific episodes. And yet, in spite of the ready availability of these scripts for over nine years now, the commercial otr community and their supporters still adamantly refuse to correct their apocryphal titles from the Camel run of Richard Diamond. But we've left it provisional for the time being, while adjusting the CBS Rebroadcast log and AFRTS log accordingly. And indeed, the cited newspaper hint argues against The Man With A Scar as the title for that rebroadcast.
And again, the CBS Rebroadcasts run comprised only previously aired broadcasts from the Rexall-sponsored series.

Or perhaps the commercial otr community and the OTRR would have us believe that Dick Powell dropped everything he was doing in 1953 to record one or two original recordings to flesh out the CBS, Rexall-sponsored Summer run.
We have no 'credentials' whatsoever--in any way, shape, or form--in the 'otr community'--none. Failure to comply with these rules will result in a warning and repeat offenders may be banned.

Nor did the Diamond franchise lack anything in writing talent, with no less than Gil Doud, E.
Helen isn't as fascinated with Diamond's cases as was Nora Charles, but Diamond often states that Helen Asher is far and away more intelligent than Diamond himself, and would probably make a far better detective if she ever set her mind to it. While the scripts vary in detail, they provide, for the most part, fairly complete details for every program actually broadcast over ABC. The 1953 run was entirely comprised of rebroadcasts of previous Rexall-sponsored programs over NBC. And indeed, it was the Powell-led Four Star Productions that brought Richard Diamond, Private Detective [Call Mr. They simply accumulate all they can lay their hands on, never really enjoying, appreciating, or even listening to the overwhelming majority of their accumulations. In the center of the two-page article is a re-staging of the episode referred to as from April 24, 1949.
1, since NBC almost certainly wouldn't have aired the same episode, two-weeks running, during the premiering two weeks of the new program.
It's all about avoiding changing disk labels and already burned or recorded stocks of on-the-shelf media awaiting sale. This is the very essence of the problems plaguing the otr community in general--stubborn, entrenched--or often co-opted--refusal to correct the historical record regarding this national treasure of Golden Age Radio recordings. The OTRR continues to endorse only those references that either comprise their membership or generously donate to their efforts. What remains indisputable--at present--is that the only circulating recording of The Chapel Hill Case is the AFRTS-denatured recording being disingenuously passed off by the OTRR and others as from the CBS Rebroadcasts canon only. 7, on June 5, 1949, as provenanced by two newspapers of the era in two of the more rare thumbnail descriptions of the program. As is our continuing practice, we provide our fully provenanced research results--to the extent possible--right here on the page, for any of our peers to review--or refute--as the case may be. The information may still be found through the site’s A-Z index or the section drop down menus. Powell persisted, and lobbied hard for the male lead in the film noir classic, Double Indemnity (1944) but lost the role to Fred MacMurray. Powell left the Fitch-sponsored Rogue's Gallery franchise upon completing the Summer Season of 1946. Jack Neuman, and Blake Edwards taking the lion's share of the writing credits, assisted by Dick Carr, Ray Dietrich, Dick Quenton, and even Ty Cobb. That Summer 1953 replacement run in the Amos 'n' Andy spot was the last season of Richard Diamond over Radio. D] to Television in 1957, with David Janssen as Richard Diamond and Blake Edwards penning most of the scripts.
And indeed, the episode title cited in the newspaper listing for May 1, 1949 very specifically cites The Wondrous Tale of the Hand-Painted Cow as the title of that evening's episode. OTR authors are no better, the majority never issuing addenda to correct their legion inaccuracies. We've renamed it, more appropriately, The Bertram Kalmus Case, after the principal character, Bertram Kalmus, portrayed by Wally Maher. And, again as usual, the otr community continues to mix and match AFRTS-denatured exemplars of the era with 'as broadcast' exemplars.
If you take issue with any of our findings, you're welcome to cite any better verifiable source(s) and we'll immediately review them and update our findings accordingly.
Jim Skwarcan labored over a corporate report while Kim Guidi made silly faces as the hero of a soap opera.The explanation of this strange mix is that the four youngsters and 20 other high school boys and girls are engaged in an educational project that gives them a rare combination of benefits.
But as if fated, Powell landed the role of Philip Marlowe in the other notable film noir classic of 1944, Murder, My Sweet.
The program is sited in the New York area, and the Diamond Detective Agency was ostensibly located at Broadway and 53rd Street in New York City. The series ran for four seasons over Television, its last original program airing in September 1960.
Apparently the OTRR feels that 'pay for play' is as lucrative today as it was during the 'Rock N Roll' scandals of the 60s, 70s and 80s. This is the very reason that the Richard Diamond canon has been so absurdly cataloged for so many years. As more verifiable provenances surface, we'll continue to update the following series log, as appropriate.
That's not to say that Powell himself didn't continue to contribute his own unique film noir and radio noir influences over the series, but Powell's success with his more light-hearted Richard Rogue characterization very much drove the light comedy aspects of the Richard Diamond run.
It is named after the Staten Island Advance, the first newspaper owned by the Newhouse family. Diamond the detective was a $100-a-day man, presumably on the strength of his previous record of accomplishments while on the Homicide Squad.
And of course legendary Blake Edwards penned the overwhelming majority of the scripts for the franchise, keeping them taut, compelling, and often bitingly humorous at the same time. The transition to ABC didn't diminish the quality of the run and indeed there are ardent proponents of both networks' efforts.
We have to raise money to pay for use of the University of Notre Dame TV studio for our show.
The common denominators remained Dick Powell and Virginia Gregg with very much the same combination of crisp humor and compelling situations. We point you in the right direction and you're free to expand on it, extend it, use it however it best advances your efforts.
They dream up the ideas, write the scripts, act them out, man the cameras and other equipment, and emerge with a format that is remindful of Laugh-In.
A reporter interview's a dim-witted basketball player who is so tall that only his legs show' on the screen. When the idea was first suggested, we helped them to get started when competing stations didn't want anything to do with them.
Now that the show is a great success, the competition wants part of the action but we won't give it to them.
They were asked to fill out forms which included questions testing them for general knowledge-for example, identify such people as Ayn Rand, Buckminster Fuller and Evel Knievel. To meet expenses before the ad money started to come in, 100 shares of stock were sold at $1 each. If there is any profit at the end of the year, it will be distributed among stockholders.As their season progresses, the South Bend kids hold a business session every Thursday evening and put their show on videotape every Saturday morning.
