Saturday TV - Boston Blackie

"I wish I had a pencil-thin mustache - the Boston Blackie kind."

If you've ever wondered just what or who Jimmy Buffett was talking about, then today's show is for you.

Boston Blackie began life as a safecracker and jewel thief in a series of novels by Jack Boyle. A character created in the "lovable rogue" mode, he was quickly transitioned to film where he became a private detective, then to radio and eventually television. His tagline, as you will hear, declared him to be "an enemy to those who make him an enemy, friend to those who have no friend."

Kent Taylor is Blackie, Lois Collier is his love interest, but the real star, of course, is that mustache.

Have a look:
