Stub[edit]

Yep, the article is a stub. Someone be bold. Gnrlotto 06:43, 23 December 2006 (UTC)

There's not much to add. It's a great show but there isn't much of it and unfortunately it's only available for sale by way of Region 2 DVD so the audience is limited. However owns the rights needs to release it in Region 1 so more people can experience this gem of a show. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.79.2.203 (talk) 14:31, 12 January 2013 (UTC)

London Weekend Television[edit]

Nowhere does this article mention the UK company London Weekend Television, whose logo was on the first season episodes, but they are indicated as involved here in the general Philip Marlowe article. However, said logo was conspicously absent from the second season, which is not mentioned there, nor is any behind-the-scenes between-seasons change described here or there. Is anybody in a better position then I am to get this info? --Ted Watson (talk) 20:32, 5 June 2009 (UTC)

I think this was the series that was shut down when its star had some legal trouble. It's possible that between series, LWT ended its involvement...? (GLG 12/21/09) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.152.94.132 (talk) 17:17, 21 December 2009 (UTC)
I suspect you're confusing this with the delay in Mickey Spillane's Mike Hammer/The New Mike Hammer caused by star Stacy Keach serving a sentence in a UK prison for drug violations. --Tbrittreid (talk) 22:50, 21 December 2009 (UTC)

Magee[edit]

Changed name of Violets Magee to Victor "Violets" Magee. In the episode Finger Man, Magee is on stand, he gives his name as Violets, then corrects himself and says Victor Magee. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.79.2.203 (talk) 04:37, 4 January 2013 (UTC)

Time Frame[edit]

Not sure when the episodes are set, but in the episode Nevada Gas, someone looks at Marlowe's private investigator's license and the issue date is 1936. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.79.2.203 (talk) 04:59, 5 January 2013 (UTC)

The episode "Smart Aleck Kill" happens on November 10, 1938. If you look at the $500.00 cheque made out to Marlowe that day, you can see the date is 10 Nov. 1938. Plus, on Marlowe's desk, the calender list the day as 10. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.79.2.203 (talk) 05:01, 6 January 2013 (UTC)
