The Roaring 20's

The Roaring 20's


The Roaring 20's 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 (Donald May) and Scott Norris (Rex Reason), in ferreting out various forms of corruption that existed during that time period. Pat and Scott were aided by nightclub singer Pinky Pinkham (Dorothy Provine), copy boy Chris Higbee (Gary Vinson), 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. Provine was lauded by many critics for her performance on the series but it was all for naught. The Roaring 20's never caught fire with the viewing public the way The Untouchables did and was cancelled midway through the 1961-62 season after airing only 45 episodes.
