Friday's Favorite OTR

Dragnet: “Big Ben” 3/15/51

As is usual with Dragnet, this is a well-constructed police procedural. What makes it most interesting is that about half-way through the episode, Joe Friday is wounded in a shooting. His partner Ben Romero (played by Barton Yarborough) takes over the case AND the narration. Yarborough was always good in the role and he does a really nice job as the lead instead of the sidekick this time around.
