Philip Marlowe, Private Eye - The King in Yellow (1983)

"'The King in Yellow' is the name of a 1938 short story by Raymond Chandler. It is a crime story in which the narrator has apparently read Chambers' book, and uses the phrase to describe one of the other characters.

Philip Marlowe, Private Eye - Season 1, Episode 2 "The King in Yellow"

Brash musician King Leopardi is at the top of the charts, but somebody has made him Number 1 with a bullet. He winds up dead in a singer's bed, and Marlowe needs to figure out who killed the King. The suspects range from jilted lovers to angry managers, and a threatening note that leads Marlowe to an old mystery and a motorcyclist who trades gunshots before the case is all wrapped up.
