Saints and Sinners

1 9 6 2 – 1 9 6 3 (USA)
18 x 60 minute episodes

A behind-the-scenes look at the work of newspapermen and women as seen through the experiences of Nick Alexander (Nick Adams), the workaholic star investigative reporter for The New York Bulletin.

Other members of the Bulletin staff included wise and kindly city editor Mark Grainger (John Larkin); copy editor Dave Tabak (Robert F. Simon); Washington correspondent Liz Hogan (Barbara Rush); reporter Polly Holloran (Sharon Farrell, pictured below right) and staff photographer Klugie (Richard Erdman).

Executive producer Adrian Spies had been a newspaperman, which helped get the detail right on this NBC series.

Sadly, John Larkin was only 52 when he suffered a heart attack and died in January 1965. Nick Adams passed away in 1968 as a result of an accidental drug overdose. He was 36.
