Series ADVENTURES OF PHILIP MARLOWE
Raymond Chandler introduced readers to Philip Marlowe in his 1939 novel The Big Sleep. Dick Powell portrayed the role on screen in 1944’s Murder, My Sweet and on The Lux Radio Theatre the following year. Humphrey Bogart, Robert Montgomery and George Montgomery portrayed the hardboiled detective in films before Van Heflin took over as Marlowe in NBC’s 1947 summer series. The Adventures of Philip Marlowe returned September 26, 1948, as a CBS series and starred Gerald Mohr. CBS Chairman William S. Paley was a big fan of The Adventures of Philip Marlowe, and his request for a "Philip Marlowe in the West" led to the development of the legendary western Gunsmoke.
