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.
Dick Powell, on the Lux Radio Theater on June 11, 1945, first played Phillip Marlowe on the radio. This was a radio adaptation of the 1944
movie, from RKO, in which Dick Powell played the lead.
Two years later, Van Heflin starred as Phillip Marlowe in a summer replacement series for the Bob Hope Show on NBC.  Show last for 13 shows.
On September 26, 1948, Gerald Mohr became the third radio Phillip Marlowe, this time on CBS.  It remained a CBS show through its last show
in1951. In The April 11, 1950 show, "The Anniversary Gift", William Conrad substituted for Mr. Mohr, becoming the fourth person to play the
detective. This series was produced and directed by Norman Macdonnell. It was loosely based on a character created by Raymond Chandler.

The Adventures Of Philip Marlowe
The B B C Presents Philip Marlowe
In September 26, 1977 BBC Saturday Night Theatre brought Phillip
Marlowe back to the radio. The BBC productions were adaptation of
the Raymond Chandler novels. A total of six novels were adapted by
Bill Morrison and produced by John Tydeman.  At the time of
production, the rights to "Farewell, My Lovely" were not available due
to the 1975 film version, starring Robert Mitchum.  Only the other five
were produced, in the order the original books were published. Ten
years later, "Farewell, My Lovely" was produced, again with John
Tydeman as producer and adapted by Bill Morrison. Phillip Marlowe
was played by Ed Bishop.
