Peter Gunn - Season One
Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
Set in a nameless waterfront city, the series features stylish film noir cinematography and a stylish musical score written by Henry Mancini, whose The Peter Gunn Theme earned him two Grammy® Awards as well as a Primetime Emmy® Award Nomination. In fact, Peter Gunn was the first TV show featuring modern jazz for a soundtrack. Edwards himself directed many episodes, as did an impressive roster of Hollywood s best TV directors, including Robert Altman.
Craig Stevens plays Gunn, Pete to his friends, a handsome, suave detective tough enough to take on the hardest of hard cases, but has a soft touch when it comes to the ladies. His girlfriend, the gorgeous singer Edie Hart (Lola Albright) is the featured singer at Mothers , a smoke-filled jazz club used by Gunn as his unofficial office. Other regulars at the club include a colorful cast of musicians, pool hustlers, artists and a sculptor. His standard fee is $1,000.00, and his reputation keeps the customers lined up for his services, sometimes referred by Mother (Hope Emerson), or his police buddy Lt. Jacoby (Herschel Bernardi). A man with expensive tastes, Peter Gunn drives a stylish two-tone Plymouth Fury Convertible, equipped with a mobile phone!
So settle into your favorite easy chair, dim the lights, and enjoy this classic series, one of the best TV detective shows ever!

Peter spends a lot of time hanging around Mom's place "Mothers" where he gets mysterious phone calls from the soon to be dead. We listen to quasi jazz tunes for the most part.
The theme song is by Henry Mancini.
It is still fun to watch and maybe fun to see the old time technology and hear antiquated speech. As for distracters complaining of quality of transfer, my DVD copy of these black and white episodes from 1958 looked much better on a large flat screen LED than the old TV broadcasts.
I you have not watched it originally it is worth adding to your cultural knowledge.
