The greatest scene on Peter Gunn.......

Gunn arrives at "Mother's" the floating gambling casino that sits just outside the 3 mile limit.

As he's walking through the room a large biker gets in his face.
Gunn says "Don't bother me, you don't know who I am"
The biker continues.
Gunn again says "You don't know who I am".
Finally the biker says "Okay, so who are you".

Gun says; "I'm the man who's going to put a .38 slug in your stomach".
The biker looks down to see Gunn's Colt Detective Special pressed against his belly.
"Gee mister I'm sorry, I didn't know who you were".

The way Craig Stevens played the role was the epitome of cool.

I liked T.H.E. Cat. It was a short runned show.
One of the best episodes starred a very young Robert Duvall as a hire killer.

T.H.E. Cat- was cool!

Used "Savate" when he had punch ups with bad guys etc!

Wish they would release it on DVD!

Watching Peter Gunn and Perry Mason kinda makes me want to buy a sport coat with shoulder pads and a Desoto convertible! And carry a Detective Special loaded with upside down HBWC's in a Berns-Martin shoulder holster. Oh well, back to reality.

I carried a Colt (detective special, cobra, not sure any more) as an Army Military Police Investigator (MPI) at Fort Bliss, TX (978th MP Co) in the mid-70's. Joined Army CID in 1977, issued a S&W Model 10, 2 inch. Issued a cheap, flimsy 2 slot belt holster. Rarely used it as the revolvers flopped all over the place. Usually carried both the Colt and then the S&W in a upside down shoulder holster. Might have been a Bianchi, until we were issued the Sig M11 in the late 1980s. Carried that is a slightly less flimsy but equally cheap Army-issued belt holster until retirement in 1999. A lot of us tried to buy our S&Ws when we had to turn them in. At first CID indicated we could, then said the Army said no. Never got a real answer. Hope they are all sitting in a depot somewhere and were not cut up or melted down. I actually shot the CID qualification better with the revolver than with the SIG. I may have to go look to see if I still have a weapons card with the serial number on it. Carried the SIG again in Iraq in 2003 as a DOD civilian. Funny side story: in the early 80's, a partner of mine PCS'd to a new duty station, forgot to turn his revolver in. He handed it to me to turn in for him. When I gave it to the unit commander I first opened the cylinder to empty it, out spilled two Army issue 158 grain standard loads and 4 hollow points (not issue). I smiled and walked out of his office.

Peter Gunn holds up better than most 50 era shows. I love watching them. Pete was COOL long before it became cool. I dearly love the cars on the show.
