Set in Los Angeles, and starring Jack Webb as the stoic SergeantJoe Friday, Dragnet is perhaps themost famous and influential police procedural drama of all time, having made extensiveruns on both radio and television. Webb, also the producer of the show, took theseries to new highs, insisting on realism in every facet of the program. Thedialogue was clipped and sparse, taking its cue from hard-boiled crime fiction à la Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett. The stories were fast-paced but thorough,making sure to chronicle every step of the police work from start to finish. Asa result, Dragnet draws listenersdeeply in to its world of gritty crime and dedicated cops, guaranteeing an exhilaratingaudio experience.Episodes includeWho Killed Helen Corday?The City Hall BombingA Mad Killer at LargeSixteen Days of Jewel TheftsThe Blitz BanditsThe Mother-in-Law MurderThe Spring Street GangThe Jade Thumb RingsThe Big Gangster, Part 1The Big Gangster, Part 2The Big Smut PressThe Big Payoff
