After Edie discovers a male corpse in her shower, her finicky landlord threatens to break her lease. Leaving Lt. Jacobi to crack wise and console Edie, Peter Gunn pursues the killers, so she won’t have an excuse to move in with him.
Personifying a 1950/60’s mix of film noir, cool, Jazz, cigarettes, cars and dangerous women, Peter Gunn was “Mad Men” with a gun. The Blake Edwards’ creation also boasted an equally cool theme song by Henry Mancini. Edwards and Mancini would team up again for the Pink Panther movies and another memorable theme song.
