Opening Theme: IT TAKES A THIEF

Spotlighting the great main titles from classic mystery/crime television shows ...

IT TAKES A THIEF
Jazz artist Dave Grusin provided the snazzy theme for this 1968-1970 adventure series. A young Robert Wagner starred as Alexander Mundy, a smooth, sophisticated playboy and burglar recruited by the government. As described by TV.com: Alexander Mundy was a cat burglar and professional thief who had style, class and talent. He made only one mistake -- getting caught. While serving a sentence in San Jobel Prison, he was contacted by representatives of the US Government spy agency, SIA. They offered to get him out if he would put his talents to work stealing for the government. Accepting the offer, he worked closely with an SIA department head, Noah Bain, who was his boss, aide, associate, friend and watchdog. During the second season he was now a free agent and his new SIA contact was Wallie Powers. Alexander's dad Alister became a semi-regular who was also a retired thief, from whom he had learned all his skills, and who occasionally teamed with his son on special jobs.

Crime TV Themes: NBC MYSTERY MOVIE

Spotlighting the great opening themes from mystery/crime TV shows ...

THE NBC MYSTERY MOVIE
While The NBC Mystery Movie was not the first series to employ the "wheel" format, rotating several different series in the same slot, it is certainly one of the best-remembered. The haunting theme music was composed by Henry Mancini (1924-1994), Academy Award-winning American composer, conductor and arranger. His film work ranged from The Creature from the Black Lagoon and Touch of Evil to the Pink Panther films. He was nominated for an amazing 72 Grammys (winning 20), and nominated for 18 Oscars (winning four). He won a Golden Globe Award and was nominated for two Emmys.

The NBC Mystery Movie aired 1971-1977, anchored by three main series: The most popular of these, the multiple Emmy-winning Columbo, featured Peter Falk as the disarming yet brilliant LAPD homicide detective. McCloud starred Dennis Weaver as a modern-day western Marshal transplanted from New Mexico to the streets of New York City. McMillan and Wife starred Rock Hudson and Susan St. James as a San Francisco Police Commissioner and his wife.

In subsequent seasons, the wheel grew to include other sleuths to varying success, including Hec Ramsey, starring Richard Boone as a turn-of-the-century Western crime fighter, and Quincy, M.E., starring Jack Klugman as a Los Angeles medical examiner. Quincy, in fact, spun off in early 1977 as a regular weekly series, to have a successful run of its own on NBC.

Even after the cancellation of The NBC Mystery Movie, Falk resumed the role of Columbo several more times over the following 25 years.

Edward Woodward (1930-2009)

TV legend Edward Woodward ("The Equalizer," "Callan") passed away today at 79. He will be missed.

Watch the opening credits sequences for his shows "The Equalizer" and "Callan" at Crime TV.

Crime TV Themes: THE EQUALIZER

Spotlighting the great themes and opening credit sequences from crime, mystery, and detective television shows ...

THE EQUALIZER
"Got a problem? Odds against you? Call the Equalizer." This 1985-89 CBS series starred imposing British actor Edward Woodward as guilt-ridden ex-espionage agent Robert McCall (a character with more than a passing resemblance to the troubled government assassin Woodward portrayed in the 1967-72 British spy series Callan). For four seasons, The Equalizer's McCall used his professional skills to aid "helpless people beset by human predators in the urban jungle, usually free of charge."

The dark, yet driving theme music was created by Stewart Copeland, whose scores also include the films Rumblefish (1983), Highlander II (1991) and Wall Street (1993). Best known as drummer for The Police, Copeland directed the recent DVD release Everyone Stares: The Police Inside Out (Hip-O Records), compiled from his Super 8 footage for an intimate look at what it was like to be a member of one of the world's biggest rock bands from 1978 to 1984.

Shalhoub on MONK: 'Everything does come to an end'

Actor Tony Shalhoub talks to Hollywood Exclusive about filming the final season of USA Network's Monk:
"We've all agreed there’s only so much you can mine out of this character. Nobody wants to move into the area where it starts to feel stale or the quality starts to drop. Since everything does have to come to an end, we want it to happen in the right way, where we’re in control of it, not a situation where the plug gets pulled. I think it honors the audience this way."
