Adventurers Silky Harris and Reno McKee have arrived in this town looking to make their fortunes.

    Federal Men is a television show in which a group of Treasury department agents go after counterfeiters, smugglers, killers and anyone involved in white-collar crime which falls under their jurisdiction. The units leader, The Chief (Walter Greaza) is a hard-nose agent who spends his time directing people against criminals who will do anything to stay out of prison, including destroying evidence, bribing officials and extortion. The Chief is the only constant character in the shows, all agents are interchangeable, showing the power of The Chief and how many people he commands. The beauty of the show is that it is based on real-life treasury cases and information, making the stories all the more believable. Also a great cast of characters and cameo appearances from soon-to-be stars, such as Charles Bronson as a heroin dealer, gives the show more appeal. The show is also known as Treasury Men In Action and ran for 5 seasons in the 1950's.moreless

    Follow That Man, aka Man Against Crime, a crime drama broadcast by CBS, NBC and DuMont Television between 1949 and 1956, was a true original. This series paved the way for modern day shows featuring private detectives. The main character Mike Barnett (Ralph Bellamy, 1949-1955 and Frank Lovejoy, 1956), a freelance private eye based in New York, opens the series with a bang - well, a spray of gunfire to be more precise. This classic tough guy oozes the alpha machismo and wise cracking savvy integral to that era. During the series Barnett takes on the wiliest criminals and the most dangerous cases that have him on the trail of jewel thieves, rescuing friends from con men and even partnering up with a female cop in one episode to help him recover over $200,000 worth of stolen diamonds. This series is for any fan of vintage detective procedural, with plenty of violence and heroic action to ease even the jitteriest jones for classic crime drama.moreless
