TV detective series grew up with the arrival of “Peter Gunn,” launching the careers of both Blake and Mancini, the latter winning an Emmy Award and two Grammys for his “Peter Gunn Theme” and score. Mancini would go on to furnish the music for many Edwards feature films including “Breakfast at Tiffany's” and the “Pink Panther” series.

“Peter Gunn” lasted only three seasons, but its standard-raising effect on the quality of production, writing and especially music in filmed episodic television has remained everlasting. And it's a classic that still packs a punch today.

Bonus feature: A CD of Mancini's music from “Peter Gunn.”
