No, but Peter Gunn, at least, was novelized, by Henry Kane. I've got it, but have never read it.

Kinda speaking of which, are there any worthwhile novelizations?

Timothy Harris's Heatwave, which was based on a friend's unproduced screenplay, was very good. I keep meaning to read Alan Sharp's Night Moves -- which came first, his screenplay or hs novel? It started as an original screenplay, didn't it? The movie tie-in paperback appears to be the first printing of the novel.
