Its a theme of amateur sleuths featured as part of a series of films or are there also amateur sleuths who appeared in just one-off flicks?

EDIT: oy nvm I see you reprinted all the titles above

Both.

But most of them are titles from various "B" mystery series the studios made.

Though they don't come out and say it directly in the article, the pattern seems to be:

Female amateur sleuths (first night)
Male amateur sleuths (second night)
Sleuthing couples (all heterosexual)
