MARTIN KANE, PRIVATE EYE

Martin Kane, Private Detective was a popular series in the 40?s and 50?s in pulp fiction, on radio and in the early 50?s as a TV series. Private detective Martin Kane works in New York solving crimes. Depending on the year, Kane was either smooth and suave or hard bitten and the cooperation he received from the police depended on the year.

In the early series the role was played by Lloyd Noland and Lee Tracy. The only constant was Happy McMann's tobacco shop. And because the show was sponsored by a tobacco company (many of the original commercials remain intact in the episodes offered in this set) Martin Kane spent a great deal of time smoking a pipe. This live NBC detective series debuted on 1 September 1949 and was last shown 17 June 1954. Title was shortened in August 1953 to "Martin Kane" and coincided with Kane no longer hanging out in the tobacco shop. Revived in 1957 in a syndicated version with William Gargan.

The quality of this series, considering it was produced like is very good and you will see all three actors in the role so you can determine who did the best job.
