The small screen for George Raft
13 May 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

George Raft who had pretty much descended to B films decided to give television a try as did so many other stars who were finding work scarce on the big screen. Raft was always best in the gangster/noir type film so he did this syndicated television series which only lasted a season in the early Fifties. He plays a police lieutenant in I Am The Law.

As a rule the half hour format in my opinion is never good for any kind of mystery drama, you need at least an hour to develop characters and a few good alternative suspects. I Am The Law was no exception to the rule.

The show was produced by of all people Lou Costello, note on the credits his brother Pat as the executive producer. Raft at the time was starting to have his tax troubles as was Costello. Maybe they thought this could help both of them out.

In any event Raft returned to the big screen and did give some good noteworthy performances subsequent to I Am The Law as in Rogue Cop and Some Like It Hot. And I Am The Law which was an average TV series passed on to history.
