Ted De Corsica plays the original Inspector Peter Black of Scotland
Yard. De Corsica was a popular large, gruff-voiced villain of
various 1940s and 1950s films. With his menacing New York swagger
and looming body-type, he played a handful of killers, thugs,
and even a prison warden. Later, Have
Gun, Will Travel actors John Dehner (who was a former
animator, DJ and piano player) and Ben Wright (an Englishman
who played a Chinese servant on Have
Gun, Will Travel) played Peter Black in this wondrous
story of "violence and murder!
Later sponsorship of the program included Molle Shave Cream and Dr. Lyon's Tooth Powder. See also, The Chase! and Manhunt!
