Actor and singer Dick Powell, after many musicals for the Warner Brothers and Fox studios, embarked on a new career as a hard-boiled tough guy when he was cast as Raymond Chandler’s detective Philip Marlowe in the 1944 film Murder, My Sweet. Powell got the opportunity to further flex his new tough-guy muscles in the medium of radio, starring in the role of investigator Richard Rogue in the crime drama Rogue’s Gallery. In this collection, Powell portrays Rogue with a charming lack of care and refusal to take things too seriously, all while delivering solid entertainment for detective and crime drama fans.
Peter Leeds co-stars as Eugor, Rogue’s subconscious alter ego who would appear when the detective was knocked out. The series also features Gerald Mohr, Lurene Tuttle, and Lou Merrill.
This collection includes eight digitally remastered and restored episodes on four audio compact discs, and a Program Guide by radio historian Ivan G. Shreve, Jr. with photos and background information about the show.
