Boston Blackie was a fictitious character created by author Jack Boyle (October 19, 1881 – October 1928). In Boyle's novels, Blackie, a jewel thief and safecracker, became a detective in film, radio and television adaptations, an "enemy to those who make him an enemy, friend to those who have no friend." A Boston Blackie radio series, also starring Chester Morris, airing on NBC June 23-September 15, 1944, as a summer replacement for Amos'n 'Andy, coincided with the Columbia Pictures movies. Lesley Woods played Mary Wesley, the girlfriend of Blackie; Inspector Farraday was played by Richard Lane. The announcer for the 30 minute show was Harlow Wilcox.
