Chick Carter, Detective - DVD - $9.95
Chick Carter, Boy Detective did his sleuthing on radio before Columbia brought him to the screen in Chick Carter, Detective. The juvenile hero of
the radio waves had underwent certain changes in order for grown-up actor Lyle Talbot to portray him. Talbot's Chick Carter, however, remained
strangely inactive in his own serial, allowing crusading reporter Rusty Farrell to perform most of the necessary derring-do. Chick Carter,
Detective was more or less a straightforward crime melodrama that eschewed the usual ray guns, invisibility inventions, and other paraphernalia
of the genre.
