Three episodes were strung together and released theatrically as a second feature in the UK in late 1954 under the title " Crime Squad " with a running time of 71 minutes. The film was granted a British Board of Film Censors certificate " A " ( children admitted if in the company of an adult ) I believe two of the episodes were " The Model Agency " and " The McClury Brothers ". The third involved the murder of a police officer, the principal clue being that of the imprint of a tennis shoe. Unfavourable review quotes ... three undistinguished melodramatic crime stories, in which the detection is mainly a matter of intuition and guesswork...unquote. I recall the TV series on early BBC programming, and in particular the story of the shoplifter who justifies the stealing with the line .. "God helps those who help themselves !"
