Editorial Reviews

Before Miami Vice, before Law and Order, the coolest and most sophisticated TV detective was definitely Peter Gunn, created and produced by Blake Edwards (The Pink Panther, SOB).

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!

Format: DVD
Lots of fun standard 25 minute episodes where the problem arises in the first five minutes. Then the answer happens in about 15 to twenty minutes and it warps up with Peter played by Craig Stevens on top of the situation in 25 minutes. Most episodes we get to listen to songs sung by Lola Albright as Edie Hart. By the way Edie most of the time stubbles on to the scene at the most inappropriate moments. Why can't she just stay in the car or home?

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.

Nice quality in the transfer. Each episode is great. The only thing is that each episode has to be started manually.

The Theme song does it for me. I just love it. This is a half hour TV detective show of long ago. It focuses around a night club, the female singer, police detective & a variety of bad guys. The main actor blends well in to the story line he have been put in. It would have been better if the show was an hour instead of half an hour, but half hour shows were the standard at the time. I am surprised that this basic show concept has not been made into an hour show. You have the night club scene, attractive singer girl friend, cooperative police detective & variety of bad guys. But since an hour show similar to Peter Gun does not exist, I suggest you seriously check out this collection of interesting shows.

the theme song you've heard a million times, the jazz in the background, the smoky voiced singer who's head over heals in love with our hero, mr gunn. The mood, the setting, the lighting...TV noir at its best

Love those old B&W movies. Peter Gunn is one of my favorite detectives. You don't see detective stories like these anymore.

Such an iconic detective show! Its dialogue is as good as anything David Mamet wrote. Created, Produced, Directed and Written by Blake Edwards. It was the first T.V. show to be so popular because of its music. It launched the career of its composer, Henry Mancini.
