  • Series Synopsis: Casey, Crime Photographer had more history than substance. It was a B-grade radio detective show, on a par perhaps with The Falcon, better than Mr. Keen, but lacking the polish and style of Sam Spade. Often a picture snapped at a crime scene led Casey to play detective. At the Blue Note Cafe, the crowd was friendly and the music was more than a backdrop. The jazz piano belonged to Herman Chittison; occasionally the music was by Teddy Wilson, noted alumnus of the Benny Goodman trio. Casey was also an early TV item, seen live on CBS, 195152. Jan Miner and John Gibson made the transition from radio, though Gibson was soon replaced. Richard Carlyle and Darren McGavin played Casey on television.
