I'm The Law (crime drama, starring George Raft)

    (Syndicated, 1953)
     [This series that was syndicated back in the early
      1950's is often mistakenly referred to as --
     "I Am The Law". However as an air check of a rare 
      episode on YouTube clearly shows, the title uses
      a contraction, and is correctly, "I'm The Law".] 

Theme 1: "Life In New York"

    [a piece by this title is credited as the theme, in 
     the Ray Clark TV Theme collection. There are only two

     the only one by a known TV composer]
