Starring Jim Hutton as author/detective Ellery Queen and with David Wayne as his father, Inspector Richard Queen.

Season 1 Quotes
Ellery Queen: Do you know who killed Monica Gray? Now, if you've been watching closely, you have all the information you need. You know, for example, that it's not the father, because I proved him innocent - or did I? Maybe it's the mother, or the son, or the faithful secretary, or maybe somebody on the sidelines. But don't go too far afield. It's not my father. At least, I don't think it is. Well, good luck - you're probably way ahead of me, anyhow.
Ellery Queen: It's really very simple. I - I make it a point to be observant and to pay attention to details. Good night, Dad.
Inspector Richard Queen: Son?
Ellery Queen: [turns back] Hmm?
Inspector Richard Queen: You forgot your glasses.
