McGraw is a solitary type who manages to get entangled in the stopping of criminal activity despite not having any official capacity. He often doesn't carry a weapon, especially if an attractive woman is involved. This short-lived television series starred Frank Lovejoy as McGraw, who really wasn't a private detective, but then again, maybe he was. Lovejoy described McGraw as follows: "He's not a superman. He's just a guy who tries to do the best he can, and is interested in saving his own neck quite frequently."
