Law Vs Gangster,
2 January 2008 | by keithmpSee all my reviews

As a youngster, I fondly remember seeing a Warner Bros B film in my home town of Coalville, Leicestershire, UK. This was Law Vs Gangster; although i'm going back 50 years when i was a regular at the Saturday afternoon matinées, I believe the star was Frank Gifford. I'd tried tracing this film previously without success but I've now discovered it was actually an episode from this Warner Bros TV series, - which I'd not heard of before. Looking at the cast lists, I would be delighted if Warners were to release a sampler DVD in their Television Favourites series. Not much hope of that I'm sure. I also recall seeing the Natalie Wood episode, Girl On The Subway on BBC Television as a youngster.
