The Adventures of Philip Marlowe radio show was a private detective action series about a tough, no nonsense crimefighter. Philip Marlowe had no sympathy for the bad guys as you can tell from this opening statement he makes at the beginning of each episode: “Get this and get it straight. Crime is a sucker’s road, and those who travel it wind up in the gutter, the prison, or the grave.”

There was also a Philip Marlowe TV Show during the 1959/60 season starring Philip Carey as Philip Marlowe. 26 episodes aired.
