All I know is that if someone dares to remake Boston Blackie... I will not be happy!!!!!!! because I know Hollywood would screw it up for sure.... And I am a huge fan of Boston Blackie (all versions... the original book, the silent film, the Chester Morris films.. the Chester Morris then Dick Kollmar radio show (I like Kollmar the best believe it or not) even the cheesy 50's TV version with Kent Taylor...who wasn't a bad Blackie...he was better than the show was.....
