Starting in 1912, and continuing over 20 years, "Craig Kennedy" appeared in hundreds of short stories, books and novels written by Arthur B Reeve. The public couldn’t get enough of fiction’s first detective to utilize modern criminal science to solve crimes. Movies, serials, a comic strip, and this television series followed. "Craig Kennedy, Criminologist" is a brisk series of mysteries produced for TV syndication in 35mm and performed by a cast of popular character actors. The series performed surprisingly well, in some markets actually besting competition such as "I Love Lucy" and "Your Show of Shows."
