Two Fisted Tuesdays with Philip Marlowe - The Panama Hat

Welcome to Two Fisted Tuesdays, Dieselpunks' weekly beat on the mean streets.

We're listening to The Adventures of Philip Marlowe until we either run out of ammo or until poor Philip lays down for the big sleep.

Starring Gerald Mohr and starting with the famous lines, "Get this and get it straight! Crime is a sucker's road and those who travel it wind up in the gutter, the prison or the grave. There's no other way, but they never learn." The Adventures of Philip Marlowe runs about 25 minutes without commercials.

Marlowe becomes involved with a gambling debt, an attempted murder, a kidnapping, a red-headed Dragon Lady, and the mysterious man in the Panama hat.


"Tell me a little about yourself, Mr. Marlowe. That is, if you don't find the request objectionable."

"What sort of thing? I'm a licensed private investigator and have been for quite a while. I'm a lone wolf, unmarried, getting middle-aged, and not rich. I've been in jail more than once and I don't do divorce business. I like liquor and women and chess and a few other things. The cops don't like me too well, but I know a couple I get along with. I'm a native son, born in Santa Rosa, both parents dead, no brothers or sisters, and when I get knocked off in a dark alley sometime, if it happens, as it could to anyone in my business, and to plenty of people in any business or no business at all these days, nobody will feel that the bottom has dropped out of his or her life."
