Humphrey Bogart proclaimed in 1950. “If everyone in the world would take three ... bent earnestly over a notebook, smoking a pipe and drinking scotch, ..."

Looks like Bogie to me

Hey, you are not being fair, Winslow. My eyesight is poor and the picture is small and I've had a few :drunken:

Is the pic from a movie?

Trying to narrow it down..

it is likely post "silent era" yet pre "techno-color era"

:drunken:

To the best of your knowledge was the pipe smoker married (even for a short period) to a famous blond hollywood star?

No,you all failed to ID him.Another clue;In the 1950's some British TV shows
that had been successful in the U.K. were shown on American TV.One example
was "The Adventures of Robin Hood".This detective was seen on American TV
in the early-mid fifties.

No,it was not Patrick McNee.This TV show had a sucessful run on the CBS
network under a different name from the British show.

The detective's name is the same as a American pop singer in the late 1950's.

Maybe, Willian Gargan who played the detective Martin Kane or it could be Rupert Davies who played a pipe smoking detective who's character name was Maigret on a long running British detective show during that time.


This is a tough one!

No,No,No. Another clue...........There was a game show called "The $64,000 Question" and it was very popular in the 1950's.This famous detective served
as the "Custodian of Questions" for the show. :scratch:
