05.28.07Netflix A Los Angeles counterpart to The Naked City and basically the pilot episode of Dragnet, this movie dispenses with the minimal character stuff that City had and delivers a straight police procedural. Not nearly as much location shooting here (but still some) and lots and lots of detailed followings of late 40s policework (such as creating a sketch of the suspect and rounding up the usual suspects)... no score makes it seem longer than it is... amazing photography though. worth watching for that alone.
