He Saw / She Saw - TV Detectives - Dragnet

The Big Hit & Run

The Big Bunko


Entertaining mostly for its nostalgia and how different customs and manners were back in the day.  Apparently, in L.A. in 1955, you didn't need a warrant to walk into someone's house and start questioning them. 


This is Dragnet before it was picked up by major studios.  In the early days, this was pretty much Jack Webb's show and he did it the way he wanted to, which was quick, staccato, direct and over righteous and determined.  After watching this, you will be glad that police don't operate this way any more.
