This Case Gets To 'Joe Friday'
9 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Stoic "Joe Friday" (Jack Webb) gets out-of-character and gets emotionally involved with this crime. Why, it's never stated but he's very edgy and frustrated as he and his fellow Los Angeles policemen can't seem to get some clues to help catch a murder. Somebody shot a pretty 26-year-old Japanese woman named "Reisho Hashimoto." Her husband had been killed in Vietnam and she had a five-year-old daughter who was staying at her grandma's at the time of the shooting.

When they finally catch the killer and the grandma asks why, Webb responds, "I don't know, ma'am. Some people just like to kill."

Along the way we meet a bunch of neighbors interviewed and, sorry to say, one of them is pictured as a "religious" person always reading the Bible. Naturally, she's depicted as a total nut case. If you've watched as many films as I have, this is no shock. This kind of stuff began showing up on TV in the mid '60s.

Another of the neighbors was played by a well-known actress: Kathleen Freeman.
