DRESSEL YOUNG DAIRY GRADE A HOMOGENIZED MILK Duff Disdains Video Version Of Crime Solving By UOft THOMAS HOLLY\VOOD vP—Howard Duff, one of radio's great private eyes, disdains the art of crime detection as practiced on TV. Duff was the original Sam Spade on radio and his show will be long remembered by whodunit fanciers. The show catapulted Duff Into film fame. loafer he gave up the show, because of billing, money and other difficulties. "That was three years ago, and people are still asking me about the show." said Duff between scenes of "Nevada Oold." "Strangers come up to me and say how much they liked it: they ask why I don't get back on the air with It. "The show must have been good to evoke all that Interest. The good thing about it was thnt It had flavor, and that's something I don't find In the TV private eye series. Sam had the ability to kid himself. The show could RO from very li«ht to very heavy. Yet in the end Sam could always laugh the whole thing off. "If the plot was a trifle confused—and many weeks I couldn't figure it out myself—Sam would laugh and say. 'well, you had a good ride for 2S mimitrs. What more do yon want—logir?' "Rut the private eyes I have seen on TV are deadly serious. They go about their work wifh an air of infallahility. And the mayhem? Bodies all over the place. "That was something 1 was against on Spade. They wonld have me Wiling off people right and left. I kept telling the producer, Bill Spier, that Spade couldn't do that. He could only kill when he was cornered and there was no other way out." Being a star alumnus of, the dames-and-detection school. Duff has naturally been offered a bevy of TV crime shows to choose from. He has chosen not to run. None of the offerings seemed to him to have the flavor of old Sam Spade.
