Dante stars Howard Duff in this short-lived 1960-61 TV series,
as Willie Dante, the owner of a San Francisco nightclub with a shady
history. Neither the cops nor the bad guys really believe he’s done with
the underworld, which causes all sorts of dilemmas. This is a really
fun series. All 26 half-hour episodes are included in this 6 DVD box set. Guest stars include Ruta Lee, Allison Hayes, Dick Foran, Charles
McGraw, Karen Steele, Edward Platt, Patricia Medina, William Schallert,
Ann Robinson, Jacqueline Scott, Adele Mara, and others. Dante has been compared to the 1959-1960 CBS adventure/drama series Mr. Lucky,
starring John Vivyan, as the operator of a legitimate gambling ship.
Old time radio fans will remember that Howard Duff starred as Sam Spade, Detective. The quality of this series is very good and you will enjoy the stories.
