Barrie Craig, Confidential Investigator

Barrie Craig, Confidential Investigator was a detective drama heard on NBC Radio from October 3, 1951 to June 30, 1955.

 Detective Barrie Craig (William Gargan) worked alone from his Madison Avenue office. Unlike his contemporaries Sam Spade and Philip Marlowe, Craig had a laid-back personality, somewhat cutting against the popular hard-boiled detective stereotype.

Others in the cast included Parley Baer and Betty Lou Gerson. Gargan also starred in the role in an unsuccessful 1955 TV pilot written and directed by Blake Edwards.
