"The Big Grandma"
is an episode of Dragnet starring
Jack Webb, Ben Alexander, and Gwen Delano.
Friday and Jacobs look for an elderly woman who has been passing bad checks just three different months a year for nearly 10 years.
When the episode begins, Friday and Smith are given the unenviable case of the Granny Forger. Why is this so bad? Well, the lady has been writing bad checks for nine years and yet they are no closer catching the woman than when they first began investigating. Fortunately, their hard work does pay off and by the end of the show, they manage to catch the sweet old crook! And, surprisingly, in the epilogue you learn that they threw granny in prison--which she rightfully deserved.
This is a fascinating and highly unusual look at a woman who simply loves stealing and doesn't even profit from her evil endeavors! Very interesting--with a nice performance by Granny!
