File:Peter Gunn 7589.jpg

A Private Eye TV show from 1958 that ran for three years. A half hour Private Detective show that updated the Hardboiled Detective ideals of the 1930's with 1950's notions of jazz cool. Featured the crime solving skills of the title character, who got equal portions of help and hindrance from Lieutenant Jacoby. He hung out in a nightclub where his girlfriend was the singer, and the owner often provide tips and clues to the crime.

Well executed, but mostly forgotten today ... except for the fact that Henry Mancini's theme music is legendary, and still popular today.
