City Detective (crime drama, starring Rod Cameron)

    (Syndicated, 1953)

    [A forerunner of the gritty New York cop shows which came
     much later in TV and movies, Cameron starred as Detective
     Lieutenant Bart Grant -- a tough no-nonsense kind of guy
    (but perhaps not as no-nonsense as Joe Friday on "Dragnet",
     but that's another story :-) Some TV critics thought the
     Bart Grant character was too much action and not enough
     character -- accusing him of solving problems too often
     "with his fists"; but that's the kind of world the 1950s
     was, at least on TV;

     Revue Productions made 65 episodes promoted heavily by its
     parent MCA talent agency and their client-star Cameron;

     As the result the series was seen on over 170 stations --
     a record at the time for a non-network TV series]
