Crime Doctor

It was intriguing to learn from Dave Karger that the Crime Doctor film shown recently was the first in a series that replicated a popular early radio show. How about a Crime Doc Day to show them all? It’s fun to consider those transition years between radio and television, and how the early ‘content creators’ wrestled with the new form of expression, and how to reach and hold an audience. Amnesia always seemed to be a grabber, or perhaps more likely, a writer’s shortcut.

It was great that TCM finally showed a Crime Doctor film.   This Columbia series was featured on Get-TV a few times,  but TCM tends to not feature  Columbia film series like The Lone Wolf,  or Boston B-l-a-c-k-i-e.     TCM may feature just one of the films (like The Lone Wolf Spy Hunt),   since  it features actors like Ida Lupino and Rita Hayworth but not the entire series. 

TCM does show the Falcon series but that is because it was from RKO.    Here is a list of the Crime Doctor films:
