On this episode of Ron’s Amazing Stories we have The Bigfoot Grafton Case. That might be enough for most shows but not the RAS. We also present a brand new segment called, In the Public domain and to round things out have a short story about a cute little shipwrecked alien.
In 1945, Dick Powell portrayed Philip Marlowe in the movie, Murder My Sweet. This performance and one other as Marlowe prompted his selection for the part of Richard Diamond. Richard Diamond, Private Detective came to NBC in 1949 with Powell in the lead. Diamond was a slick, sophisticated detective, with a sharp tongue for folks who needed it. Our story comes from this series and is called The Bigfoot Grafton Case and it first aired on August 30, 1950.
