RIP Van Williams.


In the show, didn't he have some kind of little "hornet-weapon" that he carried with him?

Knew him from "Surfside 6" in the early 60s. He and two other hip guys, Troy Donahue and Lee Patterson were pvt. eyes. Diane McBain also in it. I always thought it was a take-off on 77 Sunset Strip and Hawaiian Eye, but whatta I know.

Nope, you were right


Surfside 6 was one of four detective TV series produced by Warner Bros. around that time, the others being 77 Sunset Strip (set in L.A.), Hawaiian Eye (set in Hawaii), and the aforementioned Bourbon Street Beat (set in New Orleans). Plots, scripts (changing the names and locales), characters, and almost everything else crossed over from one series to another, not a difficult feat since they were all actually shot on the studio's backlots in Los Angeles.
