AS WITH MANY other episodes of NAKED CITY, this one makes good use of the plethora of talent available on the Broadway Stage. In this case, we have both an up and coming Ropbert Morse and a young Dustin Hoffman; who was making his television debut. Added to this, we have veteran and Academy Award (Oscar) winner, James Dunn.

WHILE THIS SERIES is well known for having a fine regular cast and so many intelligently written episodes, the production team may well have topped all of their previous efforts with this one. The basic premise and scenario are so full with plot and exposition that it could very well have been done as a theatrical feature film.

LONG ON THE portrayal pf a criminal investigation and short on typical Cops 'n Robbers shoot 'em up interplay, this must be rated as being a Magna Cum Laude of realism. This display would not be seen until the appearance of Dick Wolf's LAW AND ORDER on NBC 1n 1990.

THE TECHNIQUE OF using the portrayal one incident; as seen from multiple people is not original. It was most prominently put to use in that Japanese Film, RASHAMON (1950); most recently being used to good effect the NBC series, BOOM TOWN.

WHAT WITH ALL of the intricacies and multiple viewing of one set of occurrences, we cannot help but wondering if this was indeed the genesis of a screen play that was meant to be a theatrically released feature film.

WITH THIS EPISODE, which is titled: NAKED CITY:The Prince of Delancey Street, we have what must be considered the ultimate of ultimate of of what is the very pinnacle of the finest series of its time.
