Efrem Zimbalist Jr.,
Western stories and legends based, and filmed, in and around Death Valley, CA. One of the longest-running Western series, originating on radio in the 1930s. The continuing sponsor was "20 Mule Team" Borax, a product mined in Death Valley.
The wall maps Crawford and crew used was actually a map of central Oregon, centered around Prineville and Bend. See more »
Although well known for his line via radio of "21-50 to headquarters", Broderick Crawford throughout the series failed to properly use the radio microphone. On occasion, he held it backwards and spoke into the metal clip that held it on the dashboard, and he usually did not release the push-to-talk button after speaking (this would have prevented him from hearing headquarters). Other actors such as William Boyett did not make this error when using the microphone. See more »
This is an unforgetable series. Broderick Crawford set the standard for toughness with a badge. Sgt. Joe Friday couldn't carry Dan Matthews socks...Broderick was tough, scary and that rapid fire dialogue is burned into the memory of anyone who even thought for a nano-second of being a cop and interrogating a suspect. This is an American legand. Long Live ZIV!
