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.
Richard Diamond, Private Detective was a happy-go-lucky detective who answered his telephone with atrocious commercial jingles and was a master of the verbal putdown (especially with the police).
The opening each week set up the problem and propelled the sarcasm with the cops; the ending usually found Dick Powell as Richard Diamond in the Park Avenue penthouse of his girlfriend, the rich redhead Helen Asher.
