Times Sure Have Changed, Especially In L.A.
29 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Peggy Webber as "Janet Orhmann" was the star of this somewhat bland-but-still decent episode. Most of the show revolves around Friday (Jack Webb) and Gannon (Harry Morgan) interviewing this woman. She was interesting to watch, because her dialog was very realistic and believable. If you check out her biography, you'll find that this was just one of many appearances she had on this program, including most of them in the earlier versions in the 1950s.

Her boss was being kidnapped and held for ransom at home. The kidnapper told her to go to the bank and bring back $75,000 in cash or he'd kill the woman. Friday and Gannon find out what they have to find out and do what they have to do and wind up keeping tabs of the guy as he drives away from the house after receiving his money.

The cops fake an accident to prevent the kidnapper from going on the freeway. They said if he made it to the freeway, they'd probably lose him. Boy, does that tell you how times have changed. Now, with helicopters overhead, every car chase in Los Angeles in on TV but, I guess, 40 years ago, a major crook could get away with little problem. (These "Dragnet" episodes are all true stories.)
