Burke’s Law: The Complete First Series
Burke’s Law was a detective series produced by Aaron Spelling, starring Gene Barry as Amos Burke, the Los Angeles millionaire chief of detectives. The jet-setting, swinging Burke was chauffeured to crime scenes in his Rolls-Royce and had a penchant for dropping professorial axioms (“Never ask a question unless you already know the answer. Burke’s law!”). Gary Conway and Regis Toomey played Burke’s supporting detectives, and Leoon Lontoc played Henry, Burke’s chauffeur. This tongue-in-cheek mystery aired from 1963 to 1965 on ABC.
