Bobby Darin

Bob Hope Chrysler Theatre

"Murder in the First"

The Bob Hope Chrysler Theatre aired on NBC from 1963-67. It contained many one hour dramas with many top stars.

Bobby Darin starred in one of those dramas entitled "Murder in the First." Darin portrayed Brad Kubec, who was a first year law student who went to work as a live-in gardener for the Hartley family, one of the richest families in the state. Brad was shy, had a shuttering problem and was a little unstable. He finds himself falling in love with Carol Hartley (Janet Leigh.) Carol was a spoiled housewife who seemed to have everything but was desperate for Brad's attention. She led him on and let Brad take her out on a date to the county fair while her husband was away on business. This only fed Brad's obsession with her. When she broke off the affair, something snapped in Brad and it was "Murder in the First."
