THE ROARING 20's;
This was a very early 1960's (1960 - 62) TV series had only a two year run on television and was marketed to take advantage of a brief spurt of nostalgia for the era of the flapper.
Donald May and Rex Reason were reporters in the "Roaring Twenties" in Chicago with Mike Road as a police lieutenant. Between them they managed to solve a crime or two every eoisode, and get a news story to report every week. Helping them out was Dorothy Provine ("Pinky"), who as a speakeasy entertainer, was in a position to hear a lot of interesting information to pass on to the boys.
"Pinky" (Dorothy) also sang a number or two each episode straight out of the Roaring Twenties song book. She was pretty enough to entice younger viewers and their parents and grandparents got to hear the music of their youth. Though the show was set in the Twenties, in style it was not too different from those other Warner Brothers private eye shows of the time, 77 Sunset Strip, Surfside Six, Hawaiian Eye, Bourbon Street Beat, etc.
One little thing that most viewers didn't notice, If you look at the episode list you won't see any names of any real gangster of the times. That was left to the Untouchables. It also left plenty of room for the writer's imagination.
This was a great series, the plots were beliveable, the music was terriffic, the actor's parts were done as well as any TV series, or movie for that matter.
Only one bad thing......If you're under 60, you probably won't remember it ! If you are younger, give it a chance, you'll be extremely happy you did. After you watch it, you WILL Remember it.
REMEMBER WHEN YOU"RE WATCHING THIS SERIES, THE MASTERS ARE OVER 55 YEARS OLD ! They Are Older than most of you who will be watching, Don't expect Digital Hi Deff !!!! THEY ARE JUST WHAT THEY ARE, ORIGINAL FILM MASTERS.
