21 Beacon Street

(1959-1960)

21 Beacon Street was an American detective television series. It was originally aired on NBC from July 2nd to Sept. 10th, 1959. The 13 thirty minute episodes were a Filmways Production produced by Al Simon.

The private detective Dennis Chase, played by Dennis Morgan, passed each case to the police after he had solved the crime. The title “21 Beacon Street” was Chase’s address in Boston.

His team consisted of the proficient, sexy Lola, played by Joanna Barnes, Chase’s secretary and a member of the team, the smart-looking Brian, played by Brian Kelly, a law student and last but not least middle-aged Jim, played by James Maloney, a science expert with a particular facility for electronics.

Dennis Chase always acquired an elaborate plan to achieve the objective and he and his three assistants carried out the plan.
