This month, we're putting our spotlight on the Boston Blackie film series every Thursday night!
Boston Blackie, a character first crafted by author Jack Boyle, was simply a safecracker and thief in the original stories. When those were adapted to the screen, however, Blackie became a detective who was formerly a criminal. Having the skills and street smarts of a safecracker, not to mention a wide network of criminals as colleagues and friends, made him a particularly strong detective much to the dismay of the police.
