While based on 1950's tv shows like "77 Sunset Strip" and "Peter Gunn", fans of film noir will notice the elements of noir; that is beautiful women with secrets, a down on his luck investigator facing possible disgrace, the double cross, drinking alone in the bar, shots fired out of the night, a shoot out with an unseen gunman, and of course the trench coat.
And of course, it's Memphis, so it's also in many ways, a musical."
