I thought I would start a thread for one of my favorite things - those great 1930's and 40's mystery and crime series. These mostly B movies were churned out on a regular basis, mostly by the smaller producers. Some are cohesive series and some are only superficially linked. Some have a single character and a few are anthologies. They all have one thing in common - they were all fun. I put this in the movie section because (with the exception of Sherlock Holmes) none of these appears to be available in blu ray and in fact some are not even available in dvd. I have collected my copies from wherever I could get them and try to upgrade as they become available. Here is a list of the series I have identified: Arsene Lupin Boston Blackie Bulldog Drummond Charlie Chan Crime Doctor Denny O’Brien Dick Tracy Ellery Queen The Falcon Fast Company Frankie Darro/Mantan Moreland Series Fu Manchu Hildegard Withers I Love a Mystery Inner Sanctum Inspector Hornleigh Kitty O’Day Lone Wolf Michael Shayne Mike Hammer Miss Marple Mr. Moto Mr. Wong Nancy Drew Nero Wolfe Nick Carter Paul Temple Perry Mason Philip Marlowe Philo Vance Poirot The Saint Sarah Keate The Shadow Sexton Blake Sherlock Holmes Thin Man Torchy Blane The Whistler Whistling I'll be posting thoughts - reviews - whatever. I hope you'll all share your ideas here as well.
