Bourbon Street Beat Tidbits

Set in New Orleans, Bourbon Street Beat was one of the many detective shows launched by Warner Brothers. It was also the shortest lived. The show, that is, because the characters moved on. Randolph (Richard Long) to 77 Sunset Strip and Madison (Van WIlliams) to Surfside Six.

Not that Warner didn't try. They actually bought an interest in a real New Orleans restaurant, The Absinthe House, and placed the agency, Randolph and Calhoun, Special Services above it. Okay, that was for effect. They actually filmed Bourbon Street on the backlot on the film set used for "A Streetcar Named Desire."

Passings

Richard Long in 1974 of a heart ailment and Andrew Duggan in 1988 of throat cancer.
