Editorial Reviews

For the first time, NBCUniversal and Timeless Media Group bring you the complete, landmark series, 87th Precinct, all 30 uncut episodes direct from the Universal vaults.

Manhattan's 87th Precinct forms the backdrop for this grim and gritty police drama based on the long-running series of novels by Ed McBain. Storylines focus on neighborhood crime, and the tight-knit lives of the officers of the 87th and their families: Steve Carella (Robert Lansing) and his deaf/mute wife, Teddy (Gena Rowlands), rookie Bert Kling (Ron Harper), long-time veteran Roger Havilland (Gregory Walcott) and the wryly philosophical Meyer Meyer (Norman Fell). Each gripping story features performances from the top rung of the acting profession, including Jack Albertson and Beverly Garland (Killer s Payoff), Robert Culp (The Floater), Dennis Hopper (My Friend, My Enemy), Jeanette Nolan (Idol in the Dust), Peter Falk (The Pigeon) and many more!

Format: DVD
NBC-TV's 87TH PRECINCT's one-season run may have been the result of having to compete against CBS's THE DANNY THOMAS SHOW and its spinoff, THE ANDY GRIFFITH SHOW. Thirty episodes of "87th" aired between 9/25/61 and 4/30/62. Reruns continued until September and then it vanished, seemingly forever. This DVD release of such an obscurity is quite astonishing, and it gives us TV cop show fans a chance to see what might've been: a long, successful run, if only...

Based on the novels of Evan Hunter (aka Ed McBain), the precinct is located in an area of a fictional town that's much like Manhattan. Regular cast members: Robert Lansing (Det. Steve Carella), Ron Harper (Det. Bert Kling), Norman Fell (Det. Meyer Meyer) and Gregory Walcott (Det. Roger Havilland).

GUEST STAR TRIVIA--
Dawn Wells (#18) played Mary Ann on GILLIGAN'S ISLAND. Alvy Moore (#14, #25) was scatterbrained Hank Kimball on GREEN ACRES. Billy Halop (#3) was the original leader of the DEAD END Kids. Frank Sutton (#19) played Sgt. Carter on GOMER PYLE, U.S.M.C. Al Ruscio (#26) bought the 12th Precinct's building, thus ending the 8 season run of BARNEY MILLER. Ross Martin (#6) was Artemus Gordon on

I was happy to read about the upcoming release of the "87th. Precinct" tv series, one of the many outstanding b/w, noirish police dramas from that period. This well-done series was based on the series of books by "Ed McBain," the pseudonym of novelist/screenwriter Evan Hunter. (I met McBain/Hunter at a signing for a new 87th. Precinct novel years ago. I don't think most of the people there knew of the writer's double-identity. While most asked him about the new book, I asked him why the birds attacked Bodega Bay, since Hunter was the screenwriter for my favorite Hitchcock film: "The Birds" He seemed amused by my question.)
87th. Precinct ran for one season, (1961-1962,) Monday nights at 9 on NBC. It was prematurely cancelled by NBC the same day as the show that followed it: the classic Boris Karloff-hosted suspense drama: "Thriller." Too bad, as they were two excellent series.
87th Precinct had an excellent cast that went on to bigger things. Three years later the star, Robert Lansing, gave one of tv's great performances in the first season of the magnificent World War II drama: "12 O'Clock High." (Lansing was let go by producer Quinn Martin after the first season and viewers were told that his character, General Frank Savage had been shot down.) Co-starring as Lansing's wife was Gena Rowlands who went onto a thriving film career including an Academy Award nomination. The rest of the police squad were Norman Fell, (later "Mr Roper" of "Threes Company,) Ron Harper( who later starred in the World War II "Dirty Dozen" ripoff "Garrisons Gorillas" and the quickly cancelled "Planet of the Apes" tv series,) and Gregory Walcott, immortalized as the hero of Ed Wood Jr's "Plan Nine of Outer Space," considered by many to be the worst film ever made. (Walcott starred in this before 87th.

Never mind that it's in black and white, from the early 1960s, with no special effects to speak of. It follows some of the McBain novels pretty closely and gives a nice feel for the gritty city which was a character in his 87th Precinct series. The cast is better than average; quite a few went on to notable careers. Robert Lansing is a bit more macho than the Steve Carella portrayed in the books, but it works well enough. There is some of the snarky humor, toned down for the censors but present to leaven the grim tales of murder and the like. Similarly, gruesome details are edited out - a very pleasant change from today's guaranteed bloodbaths and forensic details. If you haven't read any of the police procedurals, though, this series might not hold you in its grip, compared with later gems like "Hill Street Blues". If you're already familiar with the 87th Precinct, especially the earliest books in the series, you will really enjoy these DVDs.

Thank goodness this was released! I enjoy older shows- sometimes its nostalgia but mostly they are just better. The ones before I was born have no nostalgia so I just hope they are good on their own. This one has great acting and characters and interesting stories. I love to turn out the lights and watch it before bed....it has a little film noir feel sometimes. I 'ge been running out of shows lately and this fit the bill, not quite Naked City but just as good in a different way.

I sure hope they continue to release old shows!
