Yes, Sam has always been a cool customer. While sometimes used for a little comic relief, he was already respected and experienced when introduced on December 26, 1948..Pat: “I went to school with Sam Catchem. He’s done some fine police work in other cities, and I thought he’d be just the man to take a lot of details off your hands, Tracy.”.Tracy: “Good. I read of your fine work in solving that Freedly case on the coast, Sam.”.Sam: “Yeah? It was nothing.”.Tracy: “You had some police experience in Boston, too, didn’t you?”.Sam: “I was special investigator there for two years. Before that I was on the force in Brooklyn. I was with the Detective Bureau in Chicago, also.”.Sam goes on to remark that he is like olives, once you know him he grows on you. Tracy is impressed, saying that he has a hunch they are going a long way together. Tracy was right, of course..
