Richard Diamond, Private Detective is an American detective drama, created by Blake Edwards, which aired on radio from 1949 to 1953,
and on television from 1957 to 1960. Shortly before his death in 2004, actor/comedian Alan King wrote a pair of short stories about the
character set in 1948. They were published posthumously in 2016.
Dick Powell starred in the Richard Diamond, Private Detective radio series as a light-hearted detective who often ended the episodes
singing to his girlfriend, Helen Asher (Virginia Gregg). Other regular cast members included Rick’s friend and former partner on the
police force, Lt. Walter Levinson, played variously by Ed Begley, Arthur Q. Bryan, Ted DeCorsia and Alan Reed, and Wilms Herbert as
Walt’s bumbling sergeant, Otis. (Herbert also “doubled” on the show as Helen’s butler Francis.) It began airing on NBC Radio on
April 24, 1949, picked up Rexall as a sponsor on April 5, 1950, and continued until December 6, 1950. Many of the shows were either
written or directed by Edwards. Its theme, “Leave It to Love”, was whistled by Powell at the beginning of each episode.
