Jack Webb was totally memorable in a part made for him. As Sgt. Joe Friday, he totally captured Los Angeles on the beat, he knew what made the city tick as well as being prepared for so many memorable characters that he would meet during his tour of duty.
His wonderful sidekicks were Ben Alexander and later Harry Morgan.
Each week we were treated to another episode. My personal favorite was the one where the neighbors cleaned out a person's home. They thought he had moved and left the furniture When they were charged with robbery, imagine the expressions on their faces.
George Fennemann, a perfect foil for Groucho Marx, was the perfect announcer.
Who can ever forget Mark V11? This show was an absolute classic.
