Not a bad show.
17 October 2004 | by (Parkersburg, West Virginia) – See all my reviews

I recently bought a DVD with 3 full length episodes of television detective series on it and this program was one of the three programs. The other two were "Dick Tracy" and "Mark Saber".

This is a very enjoyable program, and very action packed for a 30 minute one. From what I understand about this program is that it is based on actual cases from the files of the US Treasury Department. The episode I saw was called "Case of the Shot in the Dark" with a very young Charles Bronson. This episode dealt with heroin smuggling and was a good one.

I had never heard of this series before and to think that I only got this for $1.00 at a store that sells everything for $1.00.

Too bad that they don't put the complete series out on DVD, as I would love to purchase more of these old 1950's shows.
