Edward G. Robinson,
Based on actual cases from the San Francisco Police files, Lt. Guthrie and Inspector Grebb work as a team to track down criminals. In the last season Inspectors Delaney and Summers are partners in the pursuit of justice. Frequently a police lineup is featured.
Growing up in the SF Bay area as a kid in the 50's I always looked forward to San Francisco Beat coming on the tube every Saturday night. All the SF locales such as the Japanese Tea Garden,the old Hall of Justice on Kearny Street, Playland at the Sea. Filmed before the "Manhatanization" of downtown SF when the highest point in the city was Coit Tower on Telegraph Hill. I can't remember any details of the episodes but clearly recall the "feel" of the show which encapsulate everything that was San Francisco just after WWII. Fog horns, sea gulls, the wharf, this show had it all with a real film noir feel. The two detectives would stop at the police call boxes to talk to headquarters.
