Product Description

Twenty year veteran Detective Lt. Mike Stone is partnered with young, college educated Inspector Steve Keller who has a lot to learn about being a police detective on the Streets of San Francisco.

Amazon.com

These 11 gripping episodes that comprise the first half of season two went a long way toward putting The Streets of San Francisco on the map. The series would earn Emmy nominations for Best Actor (Karl Malden), Supporting Actor (Michael Douglas), and Outstanding Drama. Streets is an efficient, old school police procedural series. Rumpled 20-year veteran Mike Stone and his younger, snappier, college-educated partner, Steve Keller, rely on old-fashioned legwork, gut hunches, and plain luck to crack some particularly heinous crimes. Stone and Keller have by now bridged their generation gap. Stone still calls Keller "hot shot" and "buddy boy," but it is done with paternalistic affection, while Keller is benefiting from Stone's streetwise "axioms," such as "Ask (a suspect) the time of day, you'll learn a lot more what he thinks about than the weather." Uniformly well acted and sharply written, these episodes also feature some memorable guest stars. In "Betrayed," Martin Sheen is as a small-time Wall Street broker who uses a lonely and unwitting teller to rob a bank to finance his relationship with a wealthy girlfriend. In "Shield of Honor," Mariette Hartley is a vice cop and former Academy classmate of Keller's who may be leaking information to a crime syndicate. Leslie Nielsen is a terminally ill cop who is bent on assassinating the mobster who has eluded him in "Before I Die." And if you bought Rick Nelson as a gunslinger in Rio Bravo, then it won't be too much of a stretch to see him as a flute-playing pied piper who lures teenage runaways into prostitution in "Harem." Filmed on location, Streets has a palpable sense of place. Malden and Douglas, too, seem right at home. Their chemistry elevates this series above the standard issue cop show. If you're going to San Francisco for the first time, this three-disc set is a solid introduction. --Donald Liebenson

Customer Reviews

The quality of these copies is excellent--the videos have been completely restored.
Dustin Logan
It's nice to take a trip down memory lane and see Karl Malden and Michael Douglas work together.
Steve Keller
Malden and Douglas are great together, the acting is excellent, and the city looks fantastic.

You cannot fault the series itself, I love it and am so glad to be re-visiting "Streets".
I think I will have to reconsider buying anymore volumes due to the disgraceful tactis used by the studio to sell the dvds. I could not believe that Season TWO Volume ONE has only ELEVEN episodes. Why the volumes one and two when there are so few episodes in the season.
For goodness sake increase the price by 10.00 and sell it as a complete season.

I recently finished watching the entire first season of THE STREETS OF SAN FRANCISCO and the episodes were even better than I remembered them. Karl Malden and Michael Douglas work wonderfully together and every story has the mark of a high-quality production, with beautiful location scenery and top-notch guest stars.
As with HAWAII FIVE-O, the second season of STREETS isn't quite up to the level of the first year, but there are still quite a number of outstanding episodes. Highlights include HAREM, where former teen idol Rick Nelson plays a boyish pimp who lures teenage girls into prostitution; A WRONGFUL DEATH, in which Inspector Keller is accused of shooting an unarmed youth; and BETRAYED, featuring Martin Sheen as an ambitious businessman who uses every tool he can think of -including robbery and murder- while climbing the ladder of success.
Looking ahead, the good news is that the best is yet to come: the third season of THE STREETS OF SAN FRANCISCO is the finest year of all. Meanwhile, don't pass up this latest collection of exciting police stories in The City By The Bay. You won't be disappointed.

In Karl Malden's autobiography, he wrote that the series really started to click with season 2. In season 1, they did the indoor scenes back in LA and the outdoor scenes in the city by the bay--they were always tired from all the flying! In season 2, they did all the shooting in San Francisco.

One thing I like about season 2 is that the detective duo is getting more screen time. In season 1, the show was such a showcase for the guest stars, that Stone and Keller actually seemed absent from much of the show. There's better balance in season 2. There are still more scenes with guest stars only than in a modern show, but we get to see a lot more of the great partnership then we did previously.

The stories are fairly routine for the 1970s, but this is just such a great looking show. Malden and Douglas are great together, the acting is excellent, and the city looks fantastic. The long tracking shots of two actors talking while walking through the streets of San Francisco with no cuts are a real hallmark of this series.

The Streets of San Francisco is part of the legacy of Quinn Martin, who was one of television's alltime most successful producers, responsible for some of television's most popular action/adventure series. Martin was the producer for such popular series as The Untouchables, The FBI, Cannon, and Barnaby Jones.

The Streets of San Francisco followed the pattern of most of Martin's shows. There were divided into three acts and an epilogue, and the guest stars were introduced at the beginning of each episode. The show feature veteran, Oscar-winning actor Karl Malden (who during this time starred in a series of popular commercials for American Express credit cards) and Michael Douglas, son of Hollywood legend Kirk Douglas.

Malden played veteran SF homicide cop Mike Stone, who was newly paired with rookie detective Steven Keller, played by Douglas. Following the Naked City model of police dramas, Stone showed the green Keller the ropes of policing the city while Keller used his criminology decree and understanding of modern technology to balance the equation. Darleen Carr has an occasional role as Stone daughter and Keller's eventual love interest.

This was a solid, enjoyable series and the teaming of Malden and Douglas was an excellent one. This show is one that is still entertaining almost forty years later.

It's great to see what San Francisco looked like nearly 40 years ago when Union Square had the old stores like Roos Atkins and the old San Francisco ride at Fisherman's wharf. I miss seeing those from when I was a kid. It's nice to take a trip down memory lane and see Karl Malden and Michael Douglas work together. I just wish that they would release the entire season and not split it up. It would be nice if there were some extras included too like they did in the first season volume one.

One reviewer stated that if it weren't for the cars and clothes you wouldn't know that this was filmed 35 years ago. How true, For my money this is one of the best series ever filmed. Kudos to Karl Malden one of the greatest actors ever. He totally owns this role and is unshakeable even after taking alot of verbal and physical abuse on the seies. What is interesting is that Maldens character can so easily connect with the city's working class characters. The city is populated with Runyonesque characters and great storylines. I heard that they were making another version of this show. I am not interested in seeing a bunch of rich yuppies and their problems. This show will forever be a classic
