Roscoe Karns (above) played the title role in the popular DuMont Television
Network
series from 1950 to 1954, one of the longest-running programs on
the network. His son, character actor Todd Karns, also appeared in the
series. It was a live crime series set in New York City. The DuMont offices
and corridors were used as sets since the program was produced on a
small budget. .

At the end of each program, Rocky King would exchange telephone small
talk with his unseen wife Mabel and, after hanging up, say to no one in
particular, "Great girl, that Mabel".
