Friday's Favorite OTR

Dragnet: “The Big Holdup” 1/4/51

A thug and his blonde gal are pulling off a series of small-time muggings and robberies, pausing to beat the snot out of their victims (or simply shoot them) apparently just for the fun of it. Sgt. Friday is given the task of tracking them down.

It’s not uncommon on Dragnet for the matter-of-fact, unemotional style of the show to ironically generate a lot of emotion. A scene in this one in which a mother is interviewed about a daughter she knows has gone bad is a perfect example of this.
