A first for Jack Klugman
3 May 2009 | by (Scranton,Pa) – See all my reviews

It isn't until 39 minutes into the teleplay that Jack Klugman screams. This has to be a first in the career of Mr. Klugman.

This is one of the finer episodes of Naked City that I have seen. Naked City is probably one the first film-noir TV shows and the episodes still stand up almost 50 years later. Yeah it has the polished good moral cops who have no flaws but it still brings many elements of noir to the small screen. Another interesting aspect is the violence in many of these episodes. While tame compared to todays standards there is lots of (bloodless) killings and other mayhem. In this episode a young girl is hit by speeding moving truck intended for Klugman. I am sure this didn't sit well with a lot of people back then.
