Dragnet

- Created by Jack Webb, who also starred as Sergeant Joe Friday. The show debuted on 6/3/49 with an epsode entitled 'Robbery' and ended on 2/16/57 with a repeat of an episode called 'The Big Mustache.'

Dragnet was not the first police procedural to dramatize actual cases, but it was perhaps the best. Barton Yarborough was Webb's first partner, Ben Alexander, when he died young (after filming the first Dragnet tv episode), other actors came along, such as Martin Milner and Herb Ellis, for the rest of that season before Webb settled on Ben Alexander as his new partner Frank Smith. The show ran concurrently on radio and tv for a while.

8/18/01: The Big Mink, 6/22/50
