Richard Diamond Private Detective Private Eye LOST EPISODES 3.30 MINUTES OF THE LOST TV CLASSIC HARD TO FIND

Richard Diamond, Private Detective, was originally a radio program from 1949 to 1952, created by famed writer/director Blake Edwards and starring Dick Powell, who was also the producer. Too busy to do the TV series in 1957, Powell hired a young actor named David Meyer to play the role, but suggested he change his name to the more exotic David Janssen. For the TV series, Diamond was changed from a former OSS operative to an ex-cop, which explained his easy access to information and help from his former boss, Lieutenant McGough. For the first two seasons, Diamond remained in New York City, but then he moved to Los Angeles and acquired a girlfriend, played by Barbara Bain, and a car with a telephone in it. This allowed him to converse regularly with a sexy answering-service operator known only as "Sam", whose legs were seen but never her face. Also, in addition to a pal on the force, Lt. Kile, he also had an enemy, Sgt. Alden. Laura Renault was a recurring client, a once-famous movie star who had a knack for getting into difficult situations.  David Janssen starred as Diamond, a hard-boiled private detective in the film noir tradition. His secretary, Sam, was shown only from the waist down to display her beautiful legs. Initially, these were the legs of Mary Tyler Moore, but later, the legs of other actresses were seen. At one point during the three-year run, the show's setting was moved from New York City to Los Angeles.
