Lost Crime Shows, Volume 2 is a mixed bag of failed television series pilots and early 1950s detective series episodes.

`The Motorcycle Kid' was a Boston Blackie episode from 1953. Blackie tries to help an out-of-work teenager who has embarked on a life of crime. The series regulars were Kent Taylor as Blackie, Frank Orth as Inspector Farraday, Lois Collier as Blackie's girlfriend Mary Wesley with Sandy Sanders and Gloria Saunders as the mixed-up kids.

"Alarm" (1956) was an unsold pilot concerning the adventures of fire departments throughout the country. The pilot episode fictionalized the events leading to the deadly Cocoanut Grove nightclub fire in Boston, Massachusetts where nearly 500 patrons died. The episode stars were John Hoyt, Dorothy Green and John Hubbard.

"Mandrake the Magician" (1954) was an unsold pilot about a crime-fighting conjurer who is assisted by the mighty Lothar and the beautiful Princess Narda. In this program, enemy agents kidnap Narda to force Mandrake to help them locate a spy who possesses vital information. Mandrake was played by real-life magician Coe Norton, with Woody Strode as Lothar and Lisa Howard as Narda. The pilot, based on the long-running comic strip, had interesting possibilities, but was hamstrung by the fact that, as an actor, Norton made a great magician and even Strode's thespian skills had not evolved very far at this point in his career.

"Counterpoint" (1952) aka "Rebound" was a dramatic anthology series. Lee Marvin made his television debut in the episode presented on this DVD titled "The Witness". He play a hard-nosed police detective investigating a murder and jewel heist committed by a small-time crook.

I wanted more Boston Blackie and there was only one episode. I am glad I tried it but I will not buy another volume.

There were some shows on this that I really didn't care for. But, they are still okay to have. Boston Blackie is the best show on this DVD; Kent Taylor playing him.
