"Diamond Detective Agency. A pleasant smile, a cheerful rhyme, and we'll keep you from doing time."
Aired 1949 - 1953
Richard Diamond, Private Detective was a happy-go-lucky detective who answered his telephone with atrocious commercial jingles and was a master of the verbal putdown (especially with the police).The opening each week set up the problem and propelled the sarcasm with the cops; the ending usually found Dick Powell as Richard Diamond in the Park Avenue penthouse of his girlfriend, the rich redhead Helen Asher.
