Default This Is The City - Los Angeles, California



I don't feel like working this morning. Nope, I feel like watching Dragnet. I wanna watch Friday and Smith track down the latest crime wave and throw the most dangerous criminals of Los Angeles into the pokey. Why don't you watch along with me? It's ...

Loved Dragnet, also Adam 12. I grew up in Studio City and they filmed Adam 12 all around that area. Watching re-runs is like going home to the '60s for me. I stood next to Jack Webb when he directed a scene from the Adam 12 pilot where Reed and Malloy chased the bad guys down into the wash. My brother is actually in the scene for a couple of frames where the cars go down the wash under a bridge, he and a buddy are leaning over the rail watching. Webb wasn't a complete hard-ass, he had a sense of humor.

Lots of mp3 Dragnet radio episodes are available for free download at The Internet Archive. I listen to one during lunch most days. In one of them guys from a car club help Friday find a renegade driver that ran down a girl in a crosswalk.

Wanna hear something funny? I've got the copy of HRM that contains an article on the "Big Rod" episode, and in it, they show a picture of the real Wally Parks at the set--maybe he was too nervous and kept screwing up his nonexistent lines!

What got me on the second incarnation of the show (1967-70) would be when he'd say something like, "It was June 12, it was hot in Los Angeles...." but he'd still be wearing the same sport coat that he wore when he said, "It was February 4, it was cool and damp in Los Angeles....".
