      Ed Marinaro had the title guest starring role in 1987’s Private Eye: Nickey the Rose. He’s a mobster type of guy from circa 1956, living high and with a high profile lady on his arm. That would be Rita Marlowe, as played by Susan Blakely. She’s a movie star, somewhat in the vein

      of Marilyn Monroe and Jayne Mansfield, except not with the exact same persona. Still, she’s shapely and blonde. Actually, though, Blakely is more Lana Turner in the end, and if you know Turner’s history, you know this show because that’s the story.

      Rita’s not so sure of her gangster boyfriend, so she hires ...

      • Jack Cleary, a private eye played by series star Michael Woods to investigate. There are a lot of winding roads as the story plays out.

        I realize that the constant smoking was part of the era and is identifiable with the time of this TV series, but the fact that there’s cigarette smoke everywhere all

        the time is a real turn off for me. It just doesn’t end.

        Marinaro does okay as DeRosa. He has a scene towards the end with Woods that shows some layers and creates more intrigue and edge for his character.

        Overall, the story has bite, thanks to the Turner-esque homage, if you call it that.
