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 a soft touch when it comes to the ladies. His girlfriend, the gorgeous singer Edie Hart, Lola Albright is the featured singer at Mother's , 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, season one; Minerva Urecal, seasons two and three, 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!
Bonus CD: Music from the original Peter Gunn Soundtrack. The Peter Gunn Theme earned Henry Mancini two Grammy® Awards, a Primetime Emmy® Award nomination and has been subsequently covered by many jazz, rock, and blues recording artists. It was rated as #17 by the Neilsen ratings for the 1958-1959 TV Season. 114 Episodes. Over 47 Hours B&W

The DVD collection is excellent. For the series itself, it became lame after departure of Lola Albright as Edie Hart, Herschel Bernardi as Lt. Jacoby and Hope Emerson as Mother. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Maximo
