Description by

Edmund Lowe plays David Chase, a famed newspaper columnist and amateur detective who matches wits with those who would take the law into their own hands, in this rare TV series! Front Page Detective aired for two years on the DuMont Network (1951-1953). Unlike most of the programs on the network, it was shot on film. The show's storylines were drawn from the popular pulp magazine of the same name, known for its lurid covers of scantily-clad women. Star Edmund Lowe is best known for his role of Sergeant Henry Quirk in the silent war comedy What Price Glory? (1926) and its three sequels. Lowe was well known for his impeccable sense of style, which was most likely the reason he was cast opposite Jean Harlow in Dinner at Eight (1933).

MURDER RIDES THE NIGHT TRAIN: A mobster is targeted by assassins while on his way to testify before Congress. Guest-starring Lyle Talbot and Angelo Rossitto (Freaks).

THE DEADLY CURIO: David Chase tracks a counterfeit jade statue that leaves death in its wake.

MURDER CAN'T WIN: An innocent girl is framed for the murder of her bookie boss.

THE LITTLE BLACK BOOK: Chase is harassed by underworld figures who are seeking a little black book he possesses. Joe Besser guest stars.
