Not to be a completist or anything, but there was a half-hour adaptation of
the Macdonald short, Find the Woman, on (as I recall) Schlitz Playhouse in
the late fifties. The detective was not named Archer at that point, though
he became Archer when the short stories were collected. Michael Rennie was
the PI. And, as Tom Nolan's terrific biography of Macdonald notes, The Three
Roads was adapted by a Toronto film company for a 1986 movie titled
alternately Double Negative or Deadly Companion. Michael Sarrazin and Susan
Clark starred, with John Candy in the cast.
There've also been a couple of radio adaptations, notably an unabridged
full-cast version of Sleeping Beauty.
