In Context: My Life Is a Stream of Detective Shows

March 4, 2024

…often the detectives meet on the page.

Update: People didn’t recognize Ray Collins as Lt. Arthur Tragg from the long-running “Perry Mason” with Raymond Burr. Yes, he has nothing to do with Poirot, that’s what I meant by my life being a stream of detective shows—meeting on the page.

If you’re one of the folks who doesn’t recognize Ray Collins go watch “The Bachelor and the Bobby Soxer.” You’re in for a treat—Cary Grant, Myrna Loy, Shirley Temple, Ray, and…well just go watch it.

    Who is the detective you sketched? It doesn’t look like Poirot as I’ve imagined him. I’ve never watched the TV shows, only read the books.

      Sharon, I updated the post. The point was I was drawing one detective and quoting another. The real issue here is if you haven’t watched David Suchet playing HP you need to do some catching up!

    The sketch looked familiar, and now I know why. I used to watch Perry Mason as a child. My dad was a big fan.
