The Roaring 20's

Show Summary

The Roaring Twenties was an attempt by ABC to strike gold a second time after the success of The Untouchables on the network. It featured a Prohibition Era setting and concerned the adventures of two newspaper reporters, Pat Garrison and Scott Norris, in ferreting out various kinds of corruption that existed during that period. Pat and Scott were aided by nightclub singer Pinky Pinkham, copy boy Chris Higbee, and various others. Rex Reason, who played Scott Norris, departed the series after its first season and was replaced by John Dehner as Jim "Duke" Williams. Dorothy Provine, who played Pinky Pinkham, was well-received by the critics for her singing and acting in this series but it was all for naught. The Roaring 20's aired in a suicidal timeslot on Saturday nights opposite Perry Mason on CBS and Bonanza on NBC. This less than desirable timeslot led to the show's cancellation after 45 filmed episodes and a year and a half on the air.
