Unforgettable Performance By Lee Marvin
18 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Saw this one for the 1st time last night. Long been a fan of the original Dragnet series and had searched for a copy of this particular episode with Lee Marvin's legendary performance for a number of years. Rarely has a TV episode or a film lived up to my expectations. I knew I would enjoy this episode but I wasn't prepared for what a powerful entry in the series this would prove to be nor was I expecting such a solid, unforgettable portrayal by Lee Marvin. Don't know if he received an Emmy nomination for this episode but, God knows, he deserved one. If you are a fan of noir thrillers or films you'll take to this like a fly to sherbert.
