Interesting set of 1950s TV detective series episodes, many of which haven't been available in DVD format before.

"I'm the Law" featured tough guy George Raft as a two-fisted New York City police detective. The episode included in this set, `The Killer' can be found on other low-budget DVD sets.

"Hollywood Off Beat" aka "Steve Randall" was a short-lived Dumont series starring Melvyn Douglas as a disgraced attorney working as a private investigator while he attempting to be readmitted to the bar. The series only ran for aabout ten episodes and actually had a series finale that included a happy ending. The episode included in this set, the final show in the series, is `The Trial.'

"Police Station" was a 1959 syndicated series that ran for 39 episodes starring prolific character actor Baynes Barron as a police captain in charge of Precinct 11. I haven't been able to figure out the name of this episode; there was no splash panel at the beginning of the show and the DVD doesn't provide any information along those lines. Moreover, the guest stars aren't credited and although familiar faces, I can't remember any of their names.

"Treasury Men in Action" aka "Federal Men" - Charles Bronson stars as an undercover treasury man attempting to infiltrate a vicious gang of hoods in the episode, `The Case of the Deadly Dilemma.'

Although the DVD advertises four TV episodes, there's actually a fifth "bonus" episode from "Racket Squad" starring Reed Hadley with guest villain Douglas Dumbrille. The episode title isn't listed, but I believe it's `Sale Value' since it involves two con-men trying to fleece the owner of a small pottery factory.

INTERESTING LOOK AT CRIME IN 50'S TV. THE EPISODES ARE VERY BASIC AS COMPARED TO TODAYS ULTRA AND VIRTUAL LANDSCAPES. ENJOYED MELVIN DOUGLAS SHOW THE BEST. GOOD DVD FOR THOSE INTERESTED IN THE HISTORIC VIEW OF TELEVISION.
